    I track both sets of wheels... (One has Cup 2's and the other MP4S).

    There is a reason why I have my MP4S tires on the CF wheels. Just look up some of the threads I started re: wheel failures.

    What tire size are you running with the MP4S (as they don't come in the G305-30-19 or 315-30-19 standard R size) for the stock R carbon fiber wheels ? I need to swap out the Cup 2's and find an alterative the works better for daily driving and road trips.

    You can do the 305/325 combo that they offer - that's what I did and I think it looked good and it drove fine. I've heard that the 295/305 in the MPS4S is actually closer to the SC2 OEM sizes - so if you want it to be stockish, you can do that. I'll try to post a pic of mine. 25626235_139149030132026_1998402022680099748_o.jpg

    305's on all corners (MP4S) on CF wheels

    The R's are very nice. I love the wing. Tires and all, as many have said, it is the sum of its parts. I could have gotten a R....A deal was in place, but I decided to get the GT350. Even with that vehicle, I have yet to push it to its limits....so for me, the R was truly overkill. Do I regret it...nope. The GT350 is more than enough car for me, and still is one of the best driving vehicles I have ever owned.
