Pilot sport cups

Looking for feedback from anyone who has used the pilot sport cups.
I'm going to purchase rims soon and I decided to go with 19's. I thought that when I bought aftermarket rims I was going to purchase 20's, but I've decided since I like the way my M3 handles with the stock 19's and all the talk about losing performance by going to 20's ultimately made up my mind.
Would I have any problems with 305/30 19 in the rear and the same size as stock 245/35 19 in the front?

Gonna give u my feedback that i had on those tires. Cant give u my opinion cause i never had them, but i was in the same boat as u. When I ordered the 19" lm's I wanted to go with sport cups, and every wheel shop I spoke to suggested I didnt if I was using them as street tires.... These are better track tires then street tires, and will wear way too quickly on the street. But if ur willing to buy a new set after a few thousand miles then go ahead because they should b fun.

This has been discussed here:

You can locate that thread if you simply type "Pilot Sport Cup" into the search box.

It is best to continue the discussion there.
