Look forward to hearing about the PS4's after you have had a bit of time on them. Different car but I have them on my radar for my A250 when they need replacing later this year. Word on the street is that the PS4's are a better choice as an upgrade than a remap for basic performance gains. The thinking is that being able to stick is better than a few more horses and not sticking so well to the floor :wink:Thanks. I have decided to stick with 255/30 19's and will be having a full set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4s fitted on Sunday. Looking forward to seeing if the PS4s lives up to its hype..
You'll get a slightly higher speedo error due to the larger overall diameter. The wider tyre would give you a larger footprint which should aid traction. The extra weight of rubber means you'll lose a bit of performance. Your ground clearance will go up slightly and your arch gap will be less giving the impression that the car looks lowered compared to standard. Depending on your rim width the wider tyre will offer more protection to the rim from pothole and curb damage.My AMG 55 R172 is currently on 19's with 255/30 tyres at the rear. What are the benefits and negatives please of increasing to a 265/30 tyre?
I just know that all rims, in my case 18 inch, I was told by my mb guy not to exceed 255
i just assume even on a 19 inch, which of course is not oem/standard, the same would apply
car comes with 18Ahum, from the data card of my car (you sent it;-)
