The car will be a DD and i dont plan on hitting the road course this summer. I will just b driving it. if i do hit the drag strip, i would get another set of rims and put DR's on, so i guess im just asking for everyday driving, what would be the most reasonable tire for the money.

ventus evo v12 form hankook might be best in your case, cheap, and perform well. lots of people even use them on the track with decent results.

Nice. I was looking at those and they look pretty good. I was debating on the continental extremecontact DW or those. Im leaning towards the hancooks. Thanks.

It would be helpful to share some additional info to get a better dialed in solution.

Great Tire recommendations in 19"
1)Bridgestone RE-11
2) Michelin Pilot Super Sports or PS2
3)Continental Extreme DW or DWS (all season)
4)Nitto Invo solid all around summer tire with low road noise.
5)Cooper Zeon RS3-A (all season)

I would NOT replace with any Goodyear product especially living in Idaho.

It is a weekend nice weather toy only...I do like to take it down a hard run on the open roads of Idaho and Montana at times...I never get it wet LOL...pop it in a show now and then...I do like to smoke a tire now and then off a light...what I have seem 285/40/18 is hard to find...have had guys say they like nitto 555...and then some like Continental Extreme...I am sure I WONT be using Goodyears! I dont plan on having any tire more then 15K LOL...

You are correct they don't come in 255/40/19 but they do offer 245/40/19 and the tire OD drops .3" to 26.7.

Michelin Pilot Super Sports or PS2. For overall balance for a non-tracked car these tires are very good. Expensive but what you pay extra, you get in the # of miles these tires will last as well as better ride quality.
