Default Recommend Rear Tire for 19x10 High HP TT GS4

Looking for a good tire for my rear 19x10 rims. My TT GS4 has daily driven HP of around 450rwhp.
Any suggestions?

Thanks

if you have that much horsepower, then tires don't really matter. If you put the pedal to the metal you will melt whatever rubber you have on the car. Unless you are strictly drag racing then I would put on a good set of goodyear slicks on 17 inch rims.

I am a firm believer that power is nothing without control. maybe you need to just turn down the wick and lighten your foot. LOL

HI98GS - I am pushing over 450rwhp (probably 500rwhp once I am tuned), and I am on 19s so I need as much traction as possible. I wanted to get the Goodyear GS tires, but all shops are out of stock for at least a month from what I was told. The same with the Toyos (my second choice).

CarlssonLS400 - what is wrong with the Bridgestones Poles? I ordered them before I saw your posting.

I ended up getting Bridgestone Pole Position @ 245/35/19 in the front, and 275//30/19 in the rear. May go to 285 as suggested once I see how the Bridgestones work out.

Thanks for the feedback
