I love the PS2 but it's hella pricey. At first I was hesitant to get Hancook v12 tires but I decided to give it a try and I love how it feel on the road and track. It's half the price of the PS2 and performane is good as well. Like other have said it gives you more of a squarish look. I definitely will get these tires again because it's cheaper than some other tires that are not as good as the Hancook v12.

I'd look into Continental Extreme Contact DW tires. They are pretty dam good for 700 bucks(stock 18 sizes). I can't comment about wear, but grip and feel are pretty dam good.

The country of manufacture for the PS2's varies; some are made in Brazil and some in France. I just bought a set and the 245's are made in Brazil while the 275's are made in France.

That's very true as PS2's are super light in comparison to many other tires (e.g., Bridgestones). For some, though, price is more important than the weight savings.

I agree that to each your own. But why buy lightweight wheels when your tires are twice the weight? But that's just the way I think

I guess if you're buying light wheels it's a key factor.

Not sure how heavy the 19s are, but already, by going 19 instead of 18s, it says a lot about your preference between looks and performance.

on the 19's you would have a stiffer sidewall since you would go with 30 profile not 35, 18's are lighter
