Thank youPer John4C’s advice, I quickly changed to 225/40 and 255/35 respectively. Clearance is better, the ride is better and traction is much better.
I can’t speak on the Michelins though, I like Michelin but got a good price on continental extreme sports and couldn’t be happier.
I did multiple trackdays and 18,000 miles on:215 front is good but 225s on a 7" rim (our stock size) are oversized and not recommended. Tire choice is mostly what sizes are available currently. I have Michelin PSS in 215/245 combo which is really great but they discontinued the 215 and have yet to come out with a replacement in that size. The Continentlals as mentioned above are a very good choice also and may be my next choice unless Michelin comes out with the correct combo size.
mmm, wondering if they are as small compared to the oem Pirelli's and the weigth of them.....Wow that PS5 is really narrow
Very!! It's the exact right width for the OEMs, even 2 sizes wider, imo.Wow that PS5 is really narrow
Wow you tried them all😊Photos of the tyre fitments as described, since I've been through a few tyres and fitments...
You'll see the 255 R19 PS5 almost look closer to the OEMs than they do the 255 R19 PS4S

Hahaha basically, yes!Wow you tried them all😊
Cup 2 are basically a track tire. A few hear cycles and they are dead for track also. And forget wet road performance. It is important to realistically decide how you will use your car.....if mostly or 100% street driven, ultra summer performance tires are a poor choice.Hahaha basically, yes!
Just not the Cup 2, but not sure that's great for London
