Part # for 265/35R19 PSS now listed

Hi All, I know there has been a lot of interest in PSS 265/35R19. Finally Michelin has given us a part # for it and it is in our computers. ETA still not firm, but contrary to my pessimistic expectations earlier this year, it looks like we might actually get some, though ETA still uncertain.

In the meantime, 275/35R19 is a perfectly serviceable substitute.

If only Ben could get Michelin, Bridgestone and Yoko to make their PSS, RE-11 and AD08 in 245/35, 255/35, 265/35, 275/35, 265/30 and 285/30 then we would have most of the best sizes and top performance brands covered off.... it would make for awesome tire selection. People could keep OEM size or upsize 10m or 20mm on ZCP 9"/10" wheels and keep things similar to stock stagger, etc.

Selfishly, I need Bridgestone to release the RE-11 in a 275/35-19.

I can dream.

245/35R19 is the only good 19" front that they make in the Sport Cup (not to be confused with the Pilot Super Sport). For the rear, 265/35R19 is safe. 305/30R19 is aggressive, and may require camber change or fender mods.

The 245 and 265 sizes are BMW OEM. 305 is Porsche OEM, but a very similar tread.
