Stock tyre sizes - cup 2s
Just wondering if anyone has ever bought the stock sizes for the Michellin cup 2 tyres? Every now and then tyreleader seem to have the rear 285/35/20s in stock. They aint the N0 version but they are XL which is all that matters?

Correct me if im wrong here, but surely if you can get stock sizes, they are what you should be buying? Is there any real benefit to getting the much bigger tyre sizes?

Interestingly if you go on micheline website and say you want tyres for summer only, they recommend the cup2 over the 4s

Thinking if the cup2s dont come in stock soon I may just get some ps4s in stock sizes.

Good point, however considering the GTR is mostly RWD until it sense traction loss, having a bigger contact patch on the rear will always be better.
Last time I checked prices, the 305s were cheaper too. :)
