tire help

I have spent the last hour on here reading tire threads and I am more confused as ever. Just as I decide on tire I like I find out they suck or are not available in the proper sizes.

I just picked up a set of used HRE p40's in 19". I am still running the original ps2's but I need new tires to fit these wheels.

My car is not a daily but a weekend cruiser. Maybe 1 track day a year. If I go to the track I will not use the new tires, i'll just throw my factory 19s and ps2's back on there. I am not concerned with max performance but would like a halfway decent ride. Not necessarily looking to stick on the maximum width on there and would like to stay close to stock diameter within reason(within maybe 2% or so.) But want a good looker as well. In a nutshell, good all around tire to fit my car. Stock suspension for now but prolly a mild drop to come.

According to my needs what tires would you guys run and in what sizes?
Thanks in advance

Width and offsets front and rear on the HRE p40s would help or ask the guy you bought them from what tires he ran?

i guess they are 19x 10.5 and 19x9. The guy I bought them from used 285/30 in the rear I believe.

HRE recommends 295/30/19 and 255/35/19 in ps2's anybody running sessanta's in these sizes?
