If you look up "perfect stance" in the dictionary, they should have a picture of your car. Beautiful.

I have 295 30 20 pilot super sports currently on 20x10.5's



When the car is raised up and the axle is hanging low, the tires almost touch the frame, like within 1/8th inch of the frame. But when its lowered down onto the ground, theres alot of clearance mabe 1.5 inch
I really am considering the pilot super sport. Do you think they are worth the money? I'm running into sizing issues with 18 inch wheels though because Michelin doesn't have wide tires with a larger side wall in the 18s. I'm currently running 295/35/zr20 Toyo Proxes 4.

So far, i like them alot. Much better grip around corners, and in a straight line when compared to my stock p zero neros. Can give it a ton more throttle through corners than previously possible, and launch at 1k higher rpm on the street than previous tires without spinning. When they are warm they are excellent.

Depends on your wants and needs, a DR or mabe toyo r888 may have more traction potential but less tread life etc.. The pilot super sports are expensive, atleast in the sizes i got. I think they are a good value for the performance to longevity ratio.
