The Z2 has better wet weather grip than the RS3, but less than the PS2/PSS. You can't go wrong with either.
Correct me if I am wrong but I think Mdorphn moved to a 10et25 front wheel as opposed to the 9.5et22 wheels that I ordered. Will the 9.5et22 accommodate a 275 front tire?

Looking online the only tire in this category in those sizes are the new BFG g-force rival. Open to the idea I guess. BTW the sizes would be 275/35 and 295/35.

I should also add that my car is completely stock. When I do the wheels/tires I will be adding stainless brake lines, new brake fluid, and purchase some track brake pads to switch out (undecided on pads). I will also try to get as much negative camber as possible stock with an alignment. That said I may be buying camber plates in the near future, but that is not definite.

I would highly suggest you to buy Michelin PSS's. Besides they are even cheaper than PS2's for some reason - PSS's are better in every way. Send Gill at TireRack a PM and see what he recommends. Be sure to tell him you are a 1Addict.
I have read great things about the PSS, and have enjoyed the PS2s. That said I want to move to something a little stickier...

What is Gill's email?
