Congrats that thing is a beast.

As soon as you past break in and you start taking the car to it's limit, you will unfortunately find that the PZero's are not up to task. If you don't drive fast/don't push your car, then no worries. But, if you do and want the maximum performance that you paid for with your mods, PSS, NT05's, AD08's and R888's are the tires that supercharger owners have had the best luck with getting traction.

I swear by the PSS tire. Its also cheaper than the PS2, to boot.

Thanks. I actually had some bad luck, the 295 PSS were back ordered on tire rack . I have liked the PZeros in the past, but i agree they aren't the best for traction. I am currently exploring options for 18s actually, although my bank account is telling me to chill out a bit, so idk what i am going to do.

I REALLY want R888s, but this is my DD and people say they aren't good in rain. thoughts about R888s for DD? And thoughts about the 265/30r19 r888s for fronts? i think i will have major rubbing issues.

Oh thanks!

It is more expensive, the early registration deadline was a while ago. There is a thread on it in the regional forum, pm that guy and see what they will do.

One thing cool about these events is you can run your car a lot if you want to, you really get your money's worth IMO.
