Rear is 10.5. And yes. It baffles me that people find the edge of the wheel being exposed to ground debris is acceptable anyway. Maybe if you drive on a track or city with perfect roadways 🤔

Car is not lowered. Tires should still fully clear the wells with suspension compressed.

What? The rear wheel is 10"..... not 10.5?

Theae tires are onown to have weaker side walls unless you get the specific version that is heftier in the side walls. So this tire is double compromised in corner due tonthe incorrect tire size to wheel size.

PS4S side walls are reported as weak in cornering and having alot of roll over. This combined with a incorrect tire to wheel size seems it would add to the disfunction

Is there anyone on this forum who has ran 305s?? Or anything other than ps4s... not really getting the answers I'm looking for. I just need to know what will fit and have best traction. Not trying to complicate it. I'm looking for answers from people who have done it not hypothetical answers guys. Lol

I think you might be messengering for the wrong tire. An extensive search of this forum turned up a little about the PS4S and none of it was negative. Especially considering the PSS has the softer sidewall in regular and XL versions anyway.

In fact, Googling "Pilot Sport 4S soft sidewall" turns up...ONE...negative post, from a person who seems a little misguided because he thought Dunlop was a superior brand.

The sidewall being flexible isn't even supposed to be a bad thing, as it increases both treadlife and traction across a variety of environments.

The Mickey ET Street S/S had more sidewall flex than either the PSS or PS4S and it performed phenomenally compared to all other tires so far, both in straight line and cornering. I mean, you can't crush the Dragon without having the right tires:
