Any thoughts on 305/19 vs 295/19? No PASM on my misery spec c2. I’m inclined to go with factory spec 295


Both are actually factory spec - which it will have been supplied with originally will have been determined by which wheel type was optioned. If on 11.5J Sport Classic or Carrera Sport rims (and also 12J GT3 wheels) then you should fit the 305. Otherwise you will have 11J and are fine to fit either (for reference, the Turbo came with 305s for summer wheels and 295s for winter on the same 11J rim).

I'd stick to factory spec. They know what they are doing. Smile

Tried a few types over the years but now I stick to Michelin's with 305 on the rear.
It's just 'works' if you know what I mean.

Set of fronts ordered for £350 fitted (f1 autocentre price matched Camskill)

Getting them fitted next weekend.

If the car tries to kill me I’ll Pirouette back home and order some rears. Drive

Will report back either way

My local F1 autocentre (Hertford, brilliant) has just ordered me 2 PS4S rears for £520 all fitted etc. Should get them sometime this week Smile

Best I could was £262 each not fitted so thats a great price Smile

PS4S now fitted at front, Pzero still on rear.

I’m still alive Wink

Car feels so much sharper on turn-in. Rear still feels planted. (Only been out in the dry so far)

I can’t believe how numb the steering feedback had got. The MP4S feel much better than my last new Pzero. Date codes tell me the new ones were manufactured 6 months ago, whereas my last new Pzero fronts were over a year old at time of fitting.

Can’t wait until I get new rears, but I have no plans to change prematurely.
