I am with stock size PSS, I left the stock PS2s as a reserve set just after 550 kms. and am very happy, no tracking though so I can't comment on the reported loss of turn in compared to PS2s, I noticed nothing that sort because for me it is basically street use, occasional highway and back roads. Can't think of anything better for the 1M. They do everything admirably good. Also, unless you are in racing or desire a wider look or you have a tuned car with significantly more torque, I think the stock size does good enough with the PSS, problem of traction basically cured after my swap.
Totally agree with Ozinaldo on this. It's no use to go wider, 265 is already very wide , more is just more expensive, not to mention rubbing issues. If you wanna improve traction, just swap to PSS/conti/goodyear when the PS2's are shot ...
