Whatever size you go with, I'd pick the PSS. You'll get noticeably more grip, wet and dry compared to the Conti's. The PSS's also look wider than the Conti's, they're sporting some very broad shoulders. Luv the PSS!
It's refreshing to see that someone has noticed a decrease in performance with upsizing of tyres. I was just wondering how so many, who have upsized, couldn't feel any performance differences when there clearly would be especially with unsprung weight and a larger radius. Obviously, this excludes those who have had their engine power output increased.
