I picked up some 255/35/19's in front and 275/35/19's in the rear.

The fronts will rub a tiny bit at full lock on the front of the wheel well fender liner. Great tires, I haven't had them long enough to address their tread life.

The Michelin PSS's have a 15k mile warranty though, where the S-04's don't.

I like them so far, they stick well, Launch Control is drama free, they tram line substantially less than my Continental Sport Contact 3's.

Hi- I have written quite detailed feedback on this tire vs. PSS and other competitors in another thread with a similar title. You can find it with a forum search.

Just got two rear tires replaced and they seems to be OK beside it's reasonable price at Wheelworks $218 each, the front Conti still got some treads left but once they worn out will replace it with Michelin PSS.

So far so good and I don't expect these tires to last that long once they are done I will replace the entire Michelin PSS.

I just got these tire less than 500 miles ago. Must say they provide excellent grip, that is until you turn DSc off and push the pedal to floor with a wheel turnt sideways lol. Wet or Dry

275's + stock + + GTS Tune + launch control = awesome though. Not much slip at all.
