Need tire help...

Hello folks,

I dont know much about tires, except that ive always been told ps2's are the best.

I want to change my toyo t1rs as i dont think they offer the grip i want/need. I am runnig HRE c20s with 13et front and 22 rear. They are 9 inches up front and 10.5 in rear.

Current setup 245/35/19 front and 285/30/19 rear

Can i run a 255/295 setup? What would the extra 10mm's do for me?

What i would like:
-max grip
-not so loud/quiet as possible
-dont care ALOT about wet grip(as it never rains in LA alot, and vehicle will not be driven in rain)
-Good value

Im really think of going for Michelin ps2's in 255/35/19 up front and 295/30/19 in rear, however as i said im far from a tire expert. Ive heard great things about pirelli corsas and yokos.

thx!

There is the Nitto INVO, Yokohama Advan Neova,and Hankook Ventus V12 (comparable to the PS2 in tirerack's test and car and driver).
Pirelli Corsa are actually a track tire so I think you mean the Pirelli PZero Rosso.

i need new tires. it seems tire rack has good prices on p2s. how much do places charge to mount tires? will they do that? or do they want you to buy tires from them only?

I would try to go up in width. On the 9" fronts, I would go 265, and on the 10.5" rears 285. If you don't care about wet grip, i'd recommend you try the Bridgestone RE11. They're a fair bit cheaper than the PS2s, and have loads of grip, but they will wear faster than the PS2s.
