I've been searching all over the board but can't find anything on the actual rim sizes for the two-piece P30 package wheels. After going through the car, it definitely needs new tires. I'm probably going to go with some PS4S being it's a summer-only car, may light fall/late spring.

If anyone else has these, any recommendations for tire size?

I am running the PS4S and they are an amazing tire! I was on Conti's when I got the car and was not real happy with them, then went to the PSS and the PS4S are even better. I have wider wheels on mine, but I have 235/40/18 in the front and 265/35/18 in the rear. The front is pretty tight, but I will go 275 in the rear next time, that will take some playing with the camber arms. I would go 225 front and 255 rear if you want to be 100% sure there are no issues. Note that Michelins run pretty wide compared to other tires.

We run PS4 on both 55 and 350, year round driving.

Tyre size depends on wheel fitment.

Don't have P30 though.
225/40 ZR18 front
245/35 ZR18 rear.

Driven in rain, ice, sleet and snow.

And, if I really have to...SUN!

@jet_fl, if you didn't notice, your quoted post here was your #666 ... while the post is highly informative, as usual, the post number is infamous!!! yikes....

With all the positives on PS4S around here, I may be tempted to try out a set on my next tire exchange, just to compare with my favorite DWS06... guess we shall see... BTW, I am running 235/35/19s front, and 265/30/19s rear... pretty wide enough, and have no plans to go any wider front or back.
