Tbone - What finish are you planning on doing on your Brembo's? I'd like to check out the blue ones on your Merc sometime as I'm contemplating something similar.

Input

Alright guys, getting ready to rebuild the rims and have run into tire size availability issues in the brands I want to run, so looking for some feedback

When I first started looking at tires a few months back, my top 2 choices were:

Michelin PSS
Toyo T1R

Alternative choices were:
Hankook V12
Nitto Invo

I've run PS2's in the past, and loved them, so figured the PSS would be similar/better. I've run T1R's and really like them for the money. I currently run V12's on my mercedes. I prefer the T1R's over them. I've have never run Invo's, but they're in the running simply because they offer the sizes I need.

Goal is to run a 285/25 on a 10" front and 305/25 on 11" rear. Both these sizes were listed on michelin and toyo's websites a few months back.

The 305/25 has since been removed from Michelin's site. 285/25 available.
The 305/25 toyo is still available. The 285/25 is no longer produced, butis still on Toyo's site for some reason.

Get the picture now?

So basically, I now have to compromise on a set-up, and this is where I'm looking for some feedback.

Options if I stick with a 10"/11" rim:

- Nitto Invo in 285/25 and 305/25 (Don't know if these are good or bad tires, but they would be the correct [and my desired] sizes on these rim widths)
- Michelin PSS in 285/25 and 295/25 (This will make front sidewall a little bulged and rear sidewall a little stretched - funny looking?), and swap the rear to a 305 if Michelin starts making it in that size.

Options if I build front as a 9.5" and rear 11:

- Michelin PSS in 245/30 and 295/25 (so front has slight stretch to match rear). The 245 seems stretched on a 9.5" rim, but Michelins do tend to run a bit on the wide side so guessing it would look like a 255 Toyo, for example. Nevertheless, I still think it would make for a slight stretch on a 9.5" rim. Then, hope that Michelin makes 255/30 and 305/25 sizes in the future and swap out then
- Hankook V12's in 255/30 and 305/25 (which would be optimal sizes for the rim widths)

The other question Darwin brought up to me should I decide to stick with a 10"/285 front set-up: My tire choices are severely limited as compared to running a 9.5" front. So if companies stop making a 285/25 front, I'm basically screwed. It's a very good point and something I hadn't considered previously.

Feedback and comments welcome. What would you do??

Mr. tbone sir... you should be banned from updating this thread anymore until we get some damn pictures of your beautiful car. Im sick of seeing this thread at the top of the list with no new pics...

On a side note, dont do the bulged tire in front and the stretched in rear... that will just look silly.

Cant help you too much on your tire selection... I fell in love with Vredestein a few years back (and that doesnt seem to be in your grouping). I simply love the way they handle and they are super reasonable price wise. I too wanted a 305 in the rear but ran into the same problem you are having in that they dont make a 305/25. Thankfully they do make a 295/25 thats pretty beefy and beautiful. Anyway, good luck with your dilemma... And stop bumping this damn thread til there are pics to share.

Lol! getting close. Build is close to done. I used to run Vred's. they were the original hankooks. Best bang for the buck. I liked them too until I blew out a tire going 80. Got scared and stayed away. They also started increasing their prices as people discovered them
