    Our non-R threw a shoe last night so it's time for new tires now. Used Nitto Invo on our GT and the handling was super but sizes are not right for the non-R
    If I spec the R with 305/30 19 and 315/30 19 they are available.
    Or, I can spend more $ and go back with the factory Michelins.
    The car does have lowering springs but I wonder if the R specs will fit as I think the R uses wider wheels.
    Anyone tried this - or have a better idea?
    Thanks!!

    I'd stick with Michelin Pilot Super Sports or Sport Cup 2s to maintain factory like handling.

    Thinking about that as actually the Invos are just a bit more expensive!!
    Don't need the Sport Cup 2 as we will not track the car.
    Thanks!

    To save the SC2s for the track, and to be able to enjoy the car on the street, I switched to Continental Extreme Sport DW. Went with 295/35 in front, and 325/30s in back. I enjoy the combination and they are exactly what I wanted.

    PS4S. Best tire for a street car. Still grip. Good tread life. Great in dry and wet

    Tires were hard to find here in Arkansas! Wound up going with the Pilot Super Sport in stock sizes for $345 per tire, mounted, balanced and tax in. Since we really don't run the car hard and will not track it, we're happy and so is my billfold!
    Thanks for all the input guys!!!
