If you want a wider alternative to 275/35, PSS comes in 295/30 which would be my choice over 285/35.
would it fit nicely? I am so scared to go that wide on stock rims. I will check it out. Having rubber that phat in the back would be

function > form.

who cares if the sidewall is too "fat", as long as it keeps traction.

PSS are the way to go. true story.

Super wide looks super awesome. Managed to get the PSS, I went for 245/35/19 front and 275/35/19. I had them for 3 days now. I live in a city that has more roundabouts than a donut shop, the grip is crazy! I keep going round random tracks around the city at night to test how the car reacts. It's insane! Considering when I first got the 1M I had to break it in and didn't know the car's limits. The grip is phenomenal. I know I need to use them more to get optimal grip. First impressions are very good. The only thing is the wider rears feel as if they transmit more road feel than the OEM setup. Thank you for the recommendation lovely peoples.
