    Question for supercharged M's with tire selection

    Looking at getting some stickier rubber here soon. I have my ESS VT2-625 getting slapped on this upcoming week. Right now im using hancook ventus V12's (285/35/19) and i have a feeling these are NOT going to cut it for grip. I'm looking to get feedback from the big power guys what tire/size they are running out back. I would LIKE for the car to hook WOT in 2nd gear around 40ish for roll events if possible... Not sure if i'm asking too much here. Also, im sitting on KW V'3 for coils, so not sure how this would impact maximum tire size out back. I would love to jump into a 295 or 305, but not sure they will fit w/o rub. Wheels are a +22 offset.

    Toyo R888s or Nitto NT05s will hook the best from your street legal options... Michelin Pilot Super Sports if you're budget conscious

    I was looking into the R888's. They offer a 295 in 19"s How do michelin PSS's compare to the aforementioned?

    R888s are the ultimate street tire... The PSS' are good, but you'll be cutting them loose in 2nd (maybe 3rd), while the Toyo's might hook if they were warm

    I think if the car sees a lot of street time the Michelin PSS is the best choice.

    Best solution is separate race wheels/tires and street tires.
