    After driving a viper last weekend it got me wondering, what tire size Sam is running?

    The options in the stock 19 are limited and it's hard to find tires as wide as the stock michelins in 18. I'd imagine alot of 18" wheels have clearance issues with the brake calipers as well.

        Weird, I didn't know bridgestone made a 295/19 Potenza RE-01R.

        Any specific place carry them? I'd like to help this guy out and find something cheaper than the stock michelins, that have a slip angle more drift friendly than a cantilever slick.

        The coopers only seem to go up to 275/30/19 as well, and yoko, BfG, and Kumho don't seem to make anything in a 19" wider than 245.
