Potenza RE-11's are awesome

It came time to replace my Conti DW Extremes and my first choice was the Michelin Pilot Super Sports, but I have an account with Firestone so I opted for the 6 months no interest for the RE-11's. I hated them at first but after a few days the grip is amazing! It feels like the car is lower and I can feel more road imperfections but they are not noisy. I can't really compare them to the Michelin PSS since I've never owned them but you can't go wrong with the RE-11.

I run these and love them. They are perfect for street / track use

It's funny that people compare pss to a tire this caliber. The re11 is capable on the street and phenomenal on the track

Glad you are enjoying them

they are the only tires exoticsracinglasvegas equips their cars with, so obviously capable on the track. I'd have bought them if they were available in the size I want/need.

I totally agree. I have a set of these on my 1990 911 and also on my 135i Great tires the grip is amazing I got about 1 year (10,000 miles) of daily driving out of the rears on my 135i. Just ordered a replacement set for the back.

I've had 2 sets of RE-11s in stock zcp sizes and will continue to run them
for street/track dual duty (until I get a dedicated R-comp set for the track).
The grip is so good that I don't feel the need for bigger tires (they run wide
with square shoulder) and I really like the stiffer sidewall feeling. My current
set is wearing much more evenly after I installed camber plates. so far I've
had 6 track days and 10k miles and should be able to get another track wknd
plus few more months out of them.

Any issues with running 275\30\19 on square ZCP 10's. Curious if the shoulder causes any issues up front.

I searched, but I'm on my phone so it was a google search...
