    Price was the following (I rounded the price to the dollar) -

    2 rear tires @$504 ea minus price match discount of $53 ea = $902 for the rear
    2 front tires @ $395 minus price match discount of $40 ea = $710 for the front
    $100 for mounting, balancing
    $100 labor installing
    $52 for shipping charge match (they made me pay the tirerack shipping charge which was fair)
    Total $1764
    I still have to do my rebate for either $50 or $100

    Not cheap! But they are grippy! Significant improvement over my wearing PS2s

    And I also agree with the comment about treating tirerack right considering their history. I've bought tires from them for 10 years now (have they really been around for 20 years???) and want to keep them in business. But they also have to react to the market just like the local shops have done with price matching (it wasn't that long ago that they didn't price match, now most retail places do).

    That is a lot of money.

    When I had my MT 305 DR's mounted , Balanced and installed and I paid $50 CDN.

    I think these Pilot Super Sport sized tires are going to end up being my solution as well. They are rated highly, and are somewhat less expensive than the oem PS's. Smells like a winner to me ...

    I just ordered two PSS for the front, in 275/35x19. Discount Tire has them at a good price, AND with $25 back per tire. This brings them down to $332 each shipped, which isn't bad to me. I have at least two more track sessions, so I'll come back with a report.

    I got the PSSs in 275/35x19 mounted up front yesterday, and they fit just fine. I'll be testing them at The Milwaukee Mile tomorrow, as long as it doesn't rain. They are definitely wider and make the stance look better too.

    I have some worn 285/35x19s. I just may stick with the stock size since I don't have much problem with traction back there yet. I'm still looking at the 295/35 though.

    Brings up a good point. When do the rears take a dump? At the wear bars? beyond the wearbars? I mean they probably should hook up better (assuming dry pavement only) with ZERO tread on them.

    Nah, these have those depth indicators from Continental in the tread themselves. Maybe 5/32nds, then no water, and 3 for dry pavement? I wouldn't run them to the wear bars myself. It's now raining ere, so no track time today.

    Re: Pilot Super Sport alternate sizes

    I'm reviving this thread to see if people can report back any issues with,

    PSS
    Front: 275-35-19
    Rear: 305-30-19

    People who ran these sizes, have you noticed any issue with taking the car to the track or if your car is lowered?

    Thanks,

    Scott
