    Hey all, so I finally committed to 19” winter tires for my factory black package wheels. This means that between now and spring I need to purchase a new summer setup. Things to consider, I daily drive my car, currently on stock base GT suspension. Car goes to the drag strip a few times a year as well. Need to run a squared setup so I can rotate easily.

    All that being said I love the PP2 squared setup but from what I read on here they tend to tramline and aren’t ideal for daily? What is the widest tire you guys would run on a daily? Trying to gather as much info as I can and purchase either Black Friday or Christmas/Boxing day sales ;)

    ok so after doing a bunch of reading this afternoon on the topic I think I’m still wanting to go with a 19x11 square setup utilizing 305/30/19’s like the PP2 cars.

    That being said I’m a newbie when it comes to spacers (never used them) as well as what wheels in a 19x11 have an offset that can be used front and rear?

    Ideally I’d like to get rid of the poke that the PP2 cars have on the front end. Can this be done on the above setup using caster/camber plates?

    Thanks everyone!

    You’ll need a +50mm offset with extended studs and 25mm spacers up front. For your stated usage I don’t really see the point in going 305 square. There’s many more experienced people on the board than me, but my suggestion would be 19x10” square +35 to 40mm offset with 275/40 or 285/35 tires for a daily driver

    I'd recommend a 19x10 +35 setup with 285/35R19 tires like Indy 500, Conti ECS or Michelin PSS or PS4S.
