1M tires

Do the stock tires on the 1M seem a little stretched width wise?

BTW, this is my first post here. Just wanted to say hello and i've been enjoying the topics.

They do seem a bit conservative for 9" and 10" width. But don't go over 265F 285R or you'll be wasting tire.

No rub with those widths @ stock height?

I have not self tested but it looks like there is room for +20mm if you stay with the right profile. I plan on running that combo with PSS's or AD08's when my stock rears are used up.

I hear the PSS's are a great replacement, and they appear to be a cheaper solution than OEM.

They ARE awesome! 1M comes with a step down from supercar tire realm, it has regular Pilot Sports. The Super makes a big difference!

Besides the extra grip from the wider tires the wheel gap will close up a bit. PSS will probably be my next tire as well.

So is the PSS profile taller? I would expect it to be the same.

I think that will be my first replacement when the stockers run out. I may go a little wider, 255/35 front and 275/30 on the rear.
