    unfortunately the Michelin PSS does not come in 245/45 R19 - have anyone tried them in any other dimensions using the standard tesla 19" wheels? Any experience?

    Current running on the PS3:s, but looking at options now for next set - would like to keep performance level but decrease noise if possible - PSS sounds like a possible improvement.

    Go for it. 245/40/19, and something like a 255/45 exist. Right?

    Michelin Pilot Super Sports in 255/45R19 are close to the original diameter of the 245/45R19 tires, the PSS are 1.1% larger in diameter.

    I would recommend those over the 245/40R19s, as the 245/40R19s are 2.5% smaller in diameter.

    Thanks. My understanding is that they may rub the wheelhouse in front - thus the question is if anyone actually tried and what the results were?
