Nothing listed for that size that I could find. Checked Michelin's site and our database. Wouldn't say it's impossible, but likely not available for this season anyway.

Just ordered some for my rears, look forward to having some new rubber! Hope it's not a big deal still having Conti's on the front until they wear out.

We promise everybody our very best price right up front, so there is not any further discount unless the tire maker has a special going on.

Send a message via AIM to ssabripo
so I mounted my tires last nite:

359M competition wheels, '11.75 e90 M3 sedan.

15mm front, 10mm rear spacers (MS)

255/35 r19 fronts, 275/35 R19 rears, PSS

Prelim results
+ Went over several small-medium potholes, bumps, and construction on I-595, and no rubbing whatseover.
+ Turning in aggressively on curves (ramp of 595 to turnpike), ~80mph, no rubbing whatsoever.

- Went over my "test" bump, a big construction bump on a bridge on sunrise blvd, and I did hear a slight Rubbing on the rears, but only for a split second





my next test will be to try it on "normal" driving with the car loaded with the family...if no major rubbing issues, then I'm keeping it as is. If the rubbing appears or that one slight rub on the high bump gets worse, then I may go from 10mm to 5mm on the rears.

will post pics soon.

Ben, two questions:

1) Comparing the exact same size tires, are the Super Sports more square then the Contis? I'm not sure I want to plus size the tires, but I hate the stretched look on the ZCP wheels. I'm looking for some compromise lol

2) If I bring my car to south bend can you guys mount a set of 4? If so, do you have the newer hunter machines that almost guarantee no wheel damage when unmounting/mounting?

Here is the new Car and Driver with Tire Rack's help, "Monster's of Grip" Ultra-High and Max Performance Tire comparison.

The PSS has the best balance of wet and dry performance we’ve ever experienced in testing. The minute compromises in each discipline make “super” a worthy part of its name. It’s our winner.

Interesting that the F80 M3 Test Mule is running 255/35/19 and 275/35/19. Looks like that will be OEM spec sizes on the next M.

Im waiting as well...my Invos are almost shot. I am on my second rear set of the Invos and told myself that when the fronts are done (which is soon) I would move on to the PSS. If not available may just do the 275/30/19 front and 295/30/19 rear.

I really want to put this size on my car (ZCP Wheels), but I'm such a wuss about rubbing.

My Michelin Rep just got back to me. 285/30/19 is listed as being launched/available in 2013. That is all I have, there are no dates as to which quarter it will be released yet.

If you want Zero rubbing with those sizes just make sure that if you run spacers that they are 5mm or less in the rear and you will be fine.

Since my car isn't lowered the ZCP (.5"), I bet I will be fine.

I'm lowered on B&G springs with 10mm spacers in the back and 275's on the GTS-ZCP rims. No rub with only me in the car.

I'm running that size on ZCP suspension, and I have no rubbing whatsoever. You will be just fine.
