I'm using a 305 and 325 on the Ford pp2 replica wheels with continental ecs.
Here's my experience...I agree estetically it looks much better than 305 square. Front and rear look properly matched now. There's tons and tons of grip on straight ans fast sweeping corners.
On the downside I feel the rear wiggling a little bit when taking corners where there's elevation changes. I believe this is due to the tire bulging just a little and the contis having a very soft sidewall. This is more evident when tires are on lower psi.
These tires are excellent in most situation but focusing on handling If I was to do the 325 on 19x11 again I would probaly look for a tire with stiffer sidewall than contis ecs.

Better yet would be if you could put those 325s (anybody's, not just Contis) on 12" wide wheels.

Agree, 11" wide are not ideal for 325s but I believe thread starter doesnt want to get rid of those beautiful pp2 wheels 😉

I run 325 30 R19's on 11" Project 6GR rims. It has 50mm offset in the back, and with my progressive springs and adjustable shocks from Steeda I can fit a finger between the tire and the brake line bracket. Without all of the frame stiffening, subframe connectors and IRS bushings I'd be risking some serious rubbing issues.

325's on an 11" wheel here. No complaints. They're close enough to flush that it doesn't catch my attention. Stock suspension.

Stretched tires are a little better for handling but 325 on 11 is fine as long as you keep tire pressure where it needs to be.
