I’m running 265/30 and 295/30 Michelin PS4S on 19x9.5 and 19x10.5 Apex EC-7s. Ride comfort is not appreciably different vs. stock, but the fronts do tramline and follow road imperfections more than the stock 245s. Still happy with the setup, though.

I run 265/285/35 re-71r on stock suspension with plates. wont work on lowered cars but fills wheel arch nicely. only light rub on front liner that was fixed in 5 min with a heat gun
Is this on a M2C?

I'm running these tires and sizes on my OEM rims. Love the setup for the street, but have another set of rims for track duty

Just a word of advice. Get 18s over 19s. I have had Titan7 in 19x9.5 et23 and 19x10.5 et 34 wrapped in PS4S 265/35 and 295/30 tires on the car. It sure feels a lot stable in corner and there is a lot of grip from the wider track. However they just felt heavy and the weight transfer in corners are hard to materialize. (Front: 20.6lbs, Rear: 21.1lbs)

I recently switched to BBS RI-A in 18x9.5 et23 and 18x10.5 et37 with also PS4S but in 265/35 and 285/35 tires. Honestly, the car actually feels faster from standing and the entire car felt it got smaller due to decreased unsprung weight. (Front: 18.6lbs, Rear:19.4lbs). I got a 6 lbs total saving over 19s and 15lbs saving over stock, 20lbs if i run R Compound or 200TW tires. The difference is night and day. .

I know that for M2c will require AP racing or StopTech BBK to be able to fit 18s. If u have the money do it, u'll not regret it and running forged 18s are worth every penny.

This is exactly what I didn't want to hear. I'd love to switch to 18" if someone would sell me their lightly used, never tracked APracing fronts for half off

There's also the other option, Nickle Plated StopTech Trophies, I have it on my car. Highly recommend it and it fits 90% 18inch wheels too.

It's been hard driven 5000 street miles and 2 track days, these brakes are worth every buck Also they are about $3k cheaper front and back total compared to the AP racing brakes.

Literally minimum to no squealing from these brakes. Even with my PFC 08 race pads mounted, everything works like OEM
