Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires

I'm looking at getting the 19" RTR wheels in a staggered setup, I was wondering what size tires I should run to get the closest to OEM tire specs. I hear that a 275/40/19 in the rear and a 245/45/19 in the front would be the best. I just want your opinions now! Thanks guys.

I'm running the Pilot Super Sports with 245/40/19 on the front and 285/35/19 on the rear. I used Tire Rack to compare the various dimensions before pulling the trigger. Their site allowed me to determine the change from stock with the various sizes and made it easier for me to make up my mind.

you can run a squared setup on the RTR's. 19x9.5 on all 4 with the 275/40/19s all around. I just took off my m310s and had that same setup.

Mike - Depending on what size wheel you're going to run up front the 19x8.5's would be perfect wrapped in a 245 or 255. If you're after the 19x9.5 then shoot for a 275. More meat up front is going to help with traction as we all know the 11+'s are a little tail happy. The 19x10's going to be best paired with a 275 as well or you could go up to a 285 if you're looking for more aggressive stance.
