Not sure I would run drag radials in rain and of course winter.
325 would be a bad *** tire, which one are you going with? Also, how much is it going to run you to stretch your track pack wheels to 10.5"?

Its not cheap to widen wheels, $245 each. Not sure on tires yet, but leaning toward Pilot Sports If I can get them for a good price. I like to corner hard as well as go fast.

Well I definitely wouldn't be running them in the winter. The car won't be ran period then lol. I have a buddy that runs ET streets and has gotten caught in the rain with no real issues. I just haven't determined if I want to take that chance or not. Car only sees about 6-7k miles/year

Wouldnt it be better just to sell your stockers and go aftermarket? You're going to be spending same amount of money anyway

Wife likes stock wheels and I need some brownie points, she's still not happy I installed blower. Plus only doing 2 wheels vice all 4. Its ashame there aren't more tire selections for rear 19's, like a 305/35 which would work fine on a 10in wheel.

The 305/35/19 is the ONLY size MT street radial II's come in. Really close to purchasing some...

Both these tires are called "drag radial" and as such are not optimal for DD. 305/30-19 are most prevalent, but they are short and do not fill rear wheel wells that good.

A 305/35/19 is dam near 27.5 inches tall. It is a perfect size. And either choice is fine for a car that gets driven regularly. Just depends on the person.
