So then the rear is not 285-30.. the front is clearly a 265-35
Thanks, well this makes it easier to choose wheels. If the 21” rear is 285-30, I’m definitely go with the 19s with a 285-40 (as per the kilowatts.)The front has an OAD of FR 28.3 and RR 27.8 per Michelins specs for the 265 and 285 respectively. Not sure if they would accept 0.5" smaller rear to start. The rim size and such will make the mounted OAD larger or smaller so it is conceivable that the 285 is correct.

I understand but 30 tires means the pot holes will be more of a problem where I live, damaged wheels etc. I’ve had 30s once and I said never again.Again, the 30 means nothing other than it is a ratio of the width. The actual sidewall in inches will be same front and rear.
I understand but I was only comparing 285s. Specifically a 285-35-21 to a 285-30-21 and a 285-40-19 to a 285-30-21.A 30 sidewalk tells you nothing about the sidewalk height. A 395/30 tire has a much bigger sidewall than a 195/50. The 30 is just the percent of the width, so the wider the tire, the taller a 30% sidewall becomes.
I just contacted Michelin on their chat and they confirmed a pilot sport AS4 in 295/30 21 will be released in July. They already offer the 265/35 21. We will have an AS option for the arachnids that are to OEM spec, just not today. Answered my own question !
