Pss - Rs3? 19x10 F / 19x11 R

Wheels are a set size that won't change and my EVO V12s do not play nice with the supercharger.

I need something really sticky that still can fit these size wheels and most tires have really bad sizing for this size wheel. im running 275/30 F 295/30 R with the V12s currently.

Any insight?

I would go with the PSS, and depending on your offsets on the 19x11s, I would bump the rear to a 305/30/19.

I would suggest AD08's as having more traction than PSS's.

The RS3's have better hot traction than AD08's on a track, but are worse than AD08's if they are not hot or if it is cold or wet out.

Agree with 11 inch rims, a E92, and maybe a littler negative chamber you could fit a 305/30/19 on the rear.

What are the offsets of the 10" and 11" wheels?

You mean +20 for the fronts?

Are the AD08 stickier right away, or do they need some heat building up?

In my experience the PSS's will be better than the AD08's in the first couple of hard turns you take on the street.

So are the offsets 10et20 and 11et25, or 10et25 and 11et20 or...?

Thanks! What about traction from a dig, which one is better?

You're the one that created the offset confusion originally and why I asked for clarification...haha

With an 11et20 I'm surprised you were able to run a 295 on the R! Are you using the stock suspension at the stock ride height? How much rear camber are you running?

If you want to run a 305 without rubbing (assuming non-stock ride height, reasonable rear camber) the offset for an 11" wide wheel should be between 30 to 33. Personally, I don't think you can run a 305 on an 11et20 wheel without significant rubbing! However, perhaps I'm wrong...

I'm actually pretty low - lots of dialing in:



it is looking like 275/30 295/30 AD08 is the way to go.

I guess I was wrong - a 295 can be squeezed into the rear with an 11et20

Will a 275 be too stretched on an 11" wide wheel?

the 275 will be for the front wheel that is a 10" .............

Oops...got it! A 275 will most likely rub the front fender liner at full steering lock. I'm running a 265 and it almost rubs.

These are somewhat close to the offsets of the wheels that I ordered. Rolf is right, you are prob going to need an offset in the 30s to run a 305. I plan on running a 275/30 and 295/30. I think you should be fine w/ those sizes.

Ok - that makes sense because a 275/30-19 has a 0.2" smaller diameter than the stock 245/35-19. If you run a F tire that is slightly larger in diameter than the stock F diameter then it will most likely rub, however, not on all cars (depends on fender liner tolerance).

RS3s are harsh, noisy, and traction during normal driving isn't great. They are horrible in the rain. If you are looking for tires that are great when you put some heat in them, the RS3s are for you.

PSS are grippier on the street, quieter, and less harsh. I haven't used them on the track so I can't speak to their characteristics when hot.
