    Pretty much anywhere.
    The PS2's were the top shelf Michelins, and the tires to have just a few years ago. They aren't like the new Cup tires, but for a street tire, they are still very very good. Pricey still however.

    I am also curious to see more pics as 295/35's are quite a bit shorter than the stock 275/40's
    This will also lower your gear ratio, which means it may spin the rears easier than the stock tires, even with the slightly extra width the 295 size provides.

    Great tire but I don't like that the load rating is substantially less than the stock tire. Deal breaker for me. You can 285's as well in these...

    Really increase the gap between the fenderwells too, unless you lower it?

    I know they're smaller and that worries me. I wrote them asking to make a 275/40/20 for these cars

    Why? The PS2's are great tires for sure, but to spend that kind of money over the stock PZero's in the same size as the stock 275/40/20's for maybe a tiny fraction more grip the PS2's may have over the PZero's seems a waste.
    If I had, or absolutely WANTED to keep he stock rims on but wanted wider rear tires, I'd of gone the other way than the OP did and put 295/40/20's on the rears. Keeping the stock 275/40 fronts.
    The 295/40 rears would be taller than stock, but that's not a bad thing for a muscle car, and may actually help launching, allowing you to get into the throttle more without spinning as easy as the shorter 295/35's would. 1st gear may actually work then. LOL

    LOL is right; my friend who is an enthusiast and I went over the fact that on the street the best 0-60's are without selecting 2-LOW :D

    I can't imagine traction in first-cleanly knocking almost a second off of the 0-60...

    VP, have you been able to get a good launch in 1st gear?
    I've tried a few times, and you have to be so easy on the throttle that it seems a waste. Anything moderately aggressive results in spin. Even in 2nd, you have to be careful not to give it too much throttle for first second or so, easing it down to the floor, just on the edge of breaking the tires loose.

    I know 295/40 are taller but 295/35 aren't. Basically I want to know 60 foot times stock to PS2 as I'm not going to run my M/T's on the street

    On a four door sedan... How cool is that. B5 Blue to quote HellcatdotClub (speaking of which where is that boy... he's been very quiet) you are a BIG BALLER!
