Track set is a set of OEM 18 rear squares with 265/40/18. SLIGHT rubbing on full turn but otherwise very sticky. And wide as hell.

You run 40 profile instead of 35?

Also looking to up my tire size from stock 225/255 on ZCP 19s.

Car is an 06 SB ZCP, I plan to run about 10 or so autocross events next year, maybe 1 or 2 track events, but those are a long maybe. Other than that, car will be for street driving and weekend carving weather permitting. Being a Toronto car I dont plan on winter driving.

I was thinking on going with the Ventus V12 EVO2 at 235-245/35/19 and 265/30/19.

Has anyone got any experience with these, it would be greatly appreciated.

Front should not rub on Ohlins, I run 265 on 9.5 et35 with 3mm spacer, you might rub on fender.

Rear I think there should also be plenty of room.
