Front RE-11 275/30/R19


Rears SS 295/30/R10
Rears SS 295/35/R19
Rears SS 305/30/R19

or
Rears RE-11 305/30/R19
Not much of a rear selection for RE-11

Car is stock hight but will lower later if it looks to 4x4 also with MPH go up or down on speed?

Just google tire circumference speed calculator and you'll have your answers. You enter your original specs and the new tire specs. It'll tell you the speed difference. I loved my RE-11s. They're an extreme performance tire but will be noisier than the SSs.

I run the pilot ss in 275/30/19 and 295/35/19 on a 9.5inch wide front and a 10.5inch wide rear no clearance issues or rubbing at all and still like the look. It doesn't look all 4x4 like the guys running 30 series

And the ss is a far better tire than the ps2, I have 640rwhp and my car can hook up full throttle in 2nd

I daily drove and tracked the RE-11 305s w/ stock rims and didn't have any issues. Your speedo will be off, but I never got mines adjusted. For my drive in LA, it never really mattered. You're probably going to want to lower after though...

What size front did you have mounted ?

----------

Has any one mounted this size yet to a stock sedan rear wheel Super Sport 305/30/R19
Or should I go with a smaller size?

Rears SS 295/30/R10 -> Front?
Rears SS 295/35/R19

I'd put a 19" wheel/tire on the front instead of a 10". :)
