I'm doing some shopping for a new pair of shoes for my 2001 RT/10 and I wanted something a little more aggressive than the Extreme Contact Sports and less aggressive than the R888Rs. I found Extreme Contact Force in 345/35ZR18 for the rears and was wondering if anyone is running those or knows if that change in size is going to be problematic.

I’m sure they are great tires, Porsche and Mercedes use Continentals. But one thing I saw would put me off of these, they only come with 7/16“ of tread, the standard is 9/16”. Tires are shot at 4/16”.

A recommendation would be to see if you can get Michelin Pilot Sports (NOT Cup 2). They come with 9/16” and last a good 15K miles, I’ve had several sets. COVID shut the factory and sizes had been impossible to get but maybe that’s over now, IDK.
