Yoko AD08 Load Ratings

Will be getting AD08s in 245/35/19 and 265/35/19 for my car for track use. However the load ratings are a bit lower than the standard BMW homologated tyres - Mich, Cont, Pirelli.

OEM: front 93, rear 98
AD08s in oem sizes: front 89, rear 94

I don't wish to upsize and add rotational mass. Are these load ratings safe for heavy track use?

Thanks.

Scrap that and go 255/35/19 and 285/30/19

What you think you will sacrifice in rot mass, you will more than make up in handling

I don't think they have 285/30/19s

Correct, they don't make that size. In fact not a ton of choices now in 255/285. Hopefully the PSS comes out in 285/30 soon.

Think I may get the new Dunlop Sport Maxx Race instead of the Yokos. The Dunlops are apparently grippier than the Pilot Sport Cup+.
