Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 on Uberturbines- 265/35 & 275/35R21

265/295/40/21. Fronts are $331 a piece.

I guess when i searched for both tires at same time it never worked. I did one at time and I was able to order and install. They Fit and look great. I do notice more negative camber on the rears. Did you do anything about that or just let it be. Also... WOW the space between the front tires and the metal knuckle is very tight. I mean yeah it fits, but a rock pebble could get stuck between it.

Here are the photos showing I actually did it, the camber on the rear and the very narrow knuckle clearance for anyone else who is interested in 265/295/40/R21's CONTINENTAL EXTREMECONTACT DWS 06 PLUS

Looks very good. Any regrets going with the tire size? It looks so aggressive and this set up should be good for the entire year without having to switch out to another wheel/tire set up. I love the way it fills out the wheel well perfectly. You will never get this look if you go with 18" or 19" wheels and the taller tire sidewall to try will look ridiculous and remove you from the performance category. The 40 series side wall look like it will smooth out the ride some and give you that extra rim protection that is needed. I see from the rear ground level shot that outer 1" of the contact patch is not fully making it's way to the road. Is that what your going for or will you have it aligned? I know that tire with those Uberturbines is heavy but man does it look good!

I was looking at it, and if I did an alignment to positive out the camber so it is more perpendicular to the ground, I feel like the tire might rub on the top wheel well fender part. Right now with the negative camber on full compression it sinks into the well avoiding the lip.

I am imagining I will to need to replace the rears just as often as the Pzero stock tires, maybe a little less often, but at least I have all seasons all year.

Interesting, I’ll need to look at mine and see about the camber. Don’t imagine rubbing would be a problem with the 35s in the rear, but I have no idea how to go about adjusting the camber. Any tips?
 
Interesting. The 295/35R21s that I run on my MYP don’t seem to have the same camber issue….all looks normal to my eye.

Do you mind taking another photo where you try to line up the front tire camber and the rear tire camber. SImilar to my photo. Having another source to line it up helps show the camber

For those of us looking to change tires. It would actually be cheaper to move the rear 275/35zr21 factory rear tire to the front and pick up one set of 295/35zr21's for the rear. Anyone here already do this? Just wondering if the that 275/35zr21 tire fits in the front without any rubbing issues. Nice photos looks really good!

Na it won't matter, I tried to even attempt to make a photo where the camber looks closer to your photo and it was not possible.

LET this be the post saying 295/40/R21's might be too tall of a tire. Even if it fits, the taller tire makes the camber too negative and the longativity of the tire is now compromised. Atleast whenever that happens I know to get 295/35/R21's for rears as the 265/40/R21 fronts are perfect.

For now I know my handling will be awesome until that inner edge dies.

From this thread, not the stock tires but the same sizes you're inquiring about. It's somewhat subjective, but I think the 275/35 front and 295/35 rear setup looks the most proportional while giving you slightly more sidewall and wheel protection.

In case you are interested, the stock Pirelli 255/275 tires are in the top photo, and the Michelin all season 275/295 tires are in the bottom photo.

Drove around them for about 30 mins and it feels pretty smooth, no rubbing. Real test is the highway or a commute into work. Here are some before and after shots.

Scorpion Zero AS+
265/40/21 - Front
295/35/21 - Back
I just ordered these same exact tires and size from Discount Tires, but when we tried out the fronts... It was already rubbing when turned full. So, they advised against it and now will need to find another size. I am really wondering why mine was rubbing.... I was trying to install these on my 2021 MYLR but I do have the 21" Uberturbine wheels. Any tips or help... Suggestions please???? I would really prefer to use Pirelli Scorpion Zero AS.... Please Help!
