Talking Photos of new rear 275/40R19 Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Hi Guys,
Here I share you some pictures of the new rear 275/40R19 Michelin Pilot Super Sport (with my old-front 255/40R19 Pirelli) tires.
The first picture it will be the 255/40 R19, and the second is the 275/40R19 tire, so you can compare views, and the last one is a full view of the back with the new tires

Super sports are by far the best tire i'v ever had on a car. Put them on my 2010 miata and it transformed the cars handling. I thought it was good before wow! Picking up a 2013 gt track later this year and will have the dealer replace the tires with the super sports before I take delivery!

He went from 40 to 40 so no change in diameter or circumstance.

Not quite, the 40 is a ratio... The height of the sidewall is 40% of the width of the tread, 40% of 275 is larger than 40% of 255, therefore taller tires

Yea, I forgot that. The difference in speed at 65 mph would be about 1.5 mph.

Stock wheels are 18x8, 19x9.5 or 19x9.0(brembo wheels).

No difference that I can notice, just the tires don't slip like before with the Pirellis, they feel like glued to the floor.

No problem at all, my car is lowered with Steeda Sport Springs.
