Vred's seem to run about the same size as PS2's.
I'm lowered on the RAC wheels (9"/10") and have no rubbing issues with the 255/35 up front.

Just ordered a set of 275/30 19s Square setup on 19x10 ZCP wheels all around. In the video that someone posted early on it said the tread pattern on these is assymetrical but the tires are not directional and are not Left/Right side of the car specific. Is this true? So this means they can basically be mounted any way?

Yes, that's true.

Going to put a set on the rears only, as my fronts are virtually brand new Conti 3's. Any issues with mixing brands?

grip level may be slightly different so the car may udersteer or over steer slightly more, but you would only notice this on the track--not a huge deal. it is a much bigger deal if you have a different tire on the left than on the right.

Cheers for that. The grip can only be better than the Conti's on the rear! The traction light flickers for fun under full power in 2nd and the arse end is very twitchy indeed... on and off track!

Just pulled the trigger on a set for my BBS LMR. I got a great deal from Autumn Fleet Sales in LA. If you guys are looking for a great deal, give them a call!
