    Wouldn't that be a huge tire and need a wider wheel and be a bit too tall? The 295/35 is around 27"+ now. It recommends a 10" wheel as it is. I'm leaning towards that one myself in the rear.

    Just for reference im paying $2040 taxes in, installed and balance for 4 tires in the sizes i mentioned. They also have a 265/40/19 for the front if you want a little bigger.

    Yes, I'd do that also, thanks.

    295/35 19 is actually a closer match than the stock size to the front tire.

    So a 305/35 would be closer to matching than a 305/30. And it would look better, too...

    Ok, gotcha. The specs show the 265/40 and the 305/35 both at 27.4", a couple tenths taller than the stock, and would fill the wheel wells a little more too. thanks.

Minimum for the 325/30/19 is 11" wheel so this combo might work. Plus the extra 2.3" tire width compared to stock tire will help with traction What do you guys think?
    I'm also looking at the 275/35 front, on the stock wheel, but wonder about rubbing issues while on a track. I'll go as wide as I can on the front for more traction.

    Looks like for the coupe 10" wheels and this specific tire would be the 305/30-19...would like to try the 315 (not available) but the 325 would be a bit too risky. 275/35-19 on the front seems like the choice also. Anyone with a coupe try this combo yet?

    If you can get that, that looks like a good combo...

    Re: Pilot Super Sport alternate sizes

    The 255/40/19 front and 295/35/19 Super Sports looks like a great match. Both are 27.1" tall, compared to the 26.9" tall rear stock tires. I would think the 295 out back would help a little with traction without straying too far from the tire size GM designed the vehicle for. For me it's about performance/handling more than looks. But these sizes wouldn't alter the stock look at all - it nothing else a tiny bit better by filling the wheel wells slightly more (if you could even notice 0.2" taller). But either way, this seems like a really good combination.

    Anyone already running this exact setup? What's your real world take? My V has only 100 miles on it, so it will be some time before I need new tires unless I make the jump to the PSS based on feedbak on the forums. I figure the take-off tires will be worth something though, right?

    Re: Pilot Super Sport alternate sizes

    i think that it's a great idea. If you read the other threads, I'm even leaning towards the 275/35 fronts for even more traction.

    I just started seriously looking at tires as both my fronts have maybe another 1-2k miles left. This particular Super Sport set (stock-sized fronts and minimally wider rears) is $1500 at the Tire Rack. This may be worth a try, especially with the 30k mile tread warranty and 300 wear rating, and reports they are as good as the PS2s. Decisions, decisions.....

    Re: Pilot Super Sport alternate sizes

    Michelin web site says that the PSS 295/35/19 needs a 10"-11" rim. Has anyone done this on the stock 9.5" rims? My aftermarket wheels are also stock size and width. Will there be trouble if I try to cram this tire on? Need to know soon so I can figure out whether to purchase.

    Thanks.

    Lol, I've got the 305's on mine with the stock wheel, obviously not optimal but with the sidewalls these have it's no issue at all. When someone finally builds a wider stock wheel I will upgrade to it, or buy 20's next time I need new rubber.
