I hope there is no rubbing. I'm having this set-up put on Wednesday. From what I've read here there should be no issues on stock suspension.

I'm running 225/35/19 and 265/30/19 on SF71 wheels. Lowered on KW V2's and all 4 guards have been rolled/pumped out and I'm rubbing, especialy over small potholes!!

Can't push the car 100% for this reason. PSS are not as noisy as the RE-11 and feel about as comfortable as an RE-11 on 18" wheel.

I received mine from Steve@Tirerack. 225/40/18 and 255/35/18 on 18x8.5 ET45 and 18x9.5 ET50 GTC-CXs (VMR710 equivalents). Looks hella flush at the back but no rubbing, even with load in boot and rear passenger seat on the way home (my full set of 18 inch 261s and RFTs!). Stock M-sport suspension.

+1, great tyres, but after 2,500 kms these rears are not looking like they'll do more than 10,000 kms. They have done 2 track days though...I would buy again.

I have about 28K kms on my PS3's. No track days, but I do drive very fast and driving a few mountain passes like Stelvio didn't help my tire thread life. Yea, I will buy them again. Probably PSS's though bc of the price difference.

Yep, envious of your photos Dackel, I did Stelvio a few times on motorcycles in 2010 & 2008...amazing roads. I'd also recommend mountains around Andermatt in Switzerland...even better!

I definitely peeled off large amounts of tread on my PSS's on track days as they were over heating. These tyres have a high tread wear rate, so with road use I am sure you'd get 30,000kms out of them.

I view tyres as a consumable item. The more fun you have with your car the quicker they'll wear out... wear/fun ratio worth IMO

That's interesting, I run PS2's on my M Coupe and they hold up great to track temps. I was just about to switch to PSS, but may be inclined to stick with PS2's after reading your comment.

The PSS are definitely stickier than PS2. I think that the tread depth doesn't allow them to cool. They may have been too new to take to the track and will probably be better next time.
I was playing around with pressures, and may have done a session with pressure too low (35 PSI cold).
I had to scrape off all the melted peeled/blistered rubber clumps from the fronts as I was getting bad vibrations... with the rear a just did some burn-outs to get them smooth again.
