Question front 19X10 wheels

Hi Guys,
I have several questions:
Anyone with 19X10 runing squared or
19x10 front & 19x11 rears?
Mounted in 285/35R19 tires, please share driving experience with your setup. Do you have any fitting or rubbering issue?
Which tires do you prefer for Street and track?
Michelin Super Sport or Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

19x10 +42 all around. Works well at the track no rubbing 285/35/19 PSS. Good set up for cars with Koni sport and mild lowering springs. Getting into wider options in the 300's for tire size would start to overpower my current suspension setup on the track. PSS is not the best choice for track but it has been the best compromise tire I have run with 30k mileage warranty.

Before i vote. What will you be using the car for, and what is your driving style? There are pros and cons to each type of set up.

What is the widest you can go on these 14s without spacers? I would like to go staggered look on mine. I'm not racing just for looks.
The Michelin I hear get good ratings

Yes, My Michelin SS have great handling on road or track, even on wet, good wear, much better than the crap stock Pirellis.

11 inch wide rim with a 325 tire has been done. Offset needs to be spot on.

My street and road course tires are a set of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11s in 285/35R-19 square. The RE-11 is a tire that just gets better and better with heat (I was able to keep up with a gentleman I race with in a new 911 GT3, granted it was a pretty technical course). The Michelin is a good street tire, but not useful for competition, the compound is too hard, the tread squirms too much, and the sidewalls are too soft. I have one winter (car is daily driven, year round), 18,000 miles, 45 autocross runs (I ran STU before moving to ESP and Hoosiers for this season), and two full track time trial events on a set of these. My only gripe is that capability at high temp means a low temp compromise. They do not try to kill you when it is cold, the way some other tires so, but they do not have quite the initial cold temp (ambient) grip that the Dunlop Direzza Z2 star specs or the BFGoodrich Rivals, these do need to be warmed up a bit (making the RE-11 a not so great autocross tire, but a lot of road racers love these in the rain, there is not much that is better).

I'd say 19x10 square RE-11s

Just out of curiosity have you run the pilots for track event etc.?

Yeah, I used them back to back with a set of RE-11s, then A6's on a 2012 WRX that several of us co-drove to see which tire we liked better. For street only use, the Michelin would be quieter (the RE-11 does growl a bit due to the nature of the tread), but from a performance standpoint, the PSS just has too much sidewall deformation and tread squirm. For a 300 treadwear tire, it has a remarkable amount of grip, but, it is still much lower than an actual performance tire. No one in the regions that I frequent runs this tire on a mustang with any regularity (hence the WRX, but another gentleman I race with who tried the PSS on his 911 had the same response though) the question now seems to be RE-11, Direzza Z2, or BFG Rivals.

Wouldn't argue the other three are track stars over the pss. They do tend to be one sided with lower temps and rain in the equation. Pss has been good for my northwest winter track days and daily.

Yes, I think they did very good, I was on the back of a BMW M3 (V8) at my local PCA track, he could not leave me behind, even that his car was modded, had paddle shift, better track tires & bigger brakes, plus an experienced pilot on that track, mine was my first time with the 5.0. But I don't know how the PSS will compare with the Bridgestone RE-11.
The only thing that was not able to survive, were my stock Brembo brakes.

Once you get some heat in the RE-11 (not hard to do in a heavy car such as a mustang, I have had no trouble getting heat in the tires in 35 degree weather, with that lovely southeastern Virginia humidity and constant 20 mph cross wind trying to suck the tires back to cold), they have more grip than the PSS, and are by far the best rain tire I have used (however, they are on the unfortunate side of useless in the slush and snow). One other advantage to the RE-11 is that it has the stiffest sidewall of any "street" tire, which allows the outside edges to hold up a bit better.

11? That is to big for me. Any input on what you think I should do? I have a Sterling Grey CS. I was looking at some Godspeed deep-dish wheel with a 5 in lip. I was thinking 20 rear and 19 front. Let me know please. I would want a super aggressive look with a wide rear tire...

Good to know. I will likely give them a go next swap. How are they for treadlife?

I have 18,000 miles on them, 45 autocross runs, and two time trail weekends on them. Treadwear is still heaviest on the outside (only noticeable on the fronts, can be minimized by regular rotation to the rear), and the inside to outside difference is about 1/32". I have about 40% treadlife remaining.
