A couple questions, but mostly likely I'll be told to buy wider rims :S

1) Michelin web site shows the 275 width to fit a 9" to 10" rim. They make it in 30 and 35 profiles, but one is 2% larger and the other 2% smaller than stock. Which would be the better fit on our stock 19x9 rims?

2) Would the little bit extra width of the 275 be worth shoe horning it on the stock rims vs the 255 or 265? I really don't want to lose any handling performance at the track.

3) I know this contradicts the question above. They don't make a 285(which seems to work for the Cont. DW), but the 295 may fit... Anyone have some thoughts on this?

I am also wondering the same thing. Maybe the larger tires squirm a tad more on the track and most of the forum members just want more straight line rear wheel grip?

This still seems unclear... Michelin does say the 275 fits on a 9".
