    295 vs 305 rears

    Hi all, I have searched this but can't find any definitive opinions. I will be getting p zero tears for my 09 v10 R8 (I know they're not the best but the fronts have 7mm of tread left and I want all 4 to be the same brand). My question is does it make any difference to the handling or any other difference is I go for the 305s. I currently have 295s on there and the fit is fine. Thanks in advance all

    More important than 305 rears is getting 245 fronts!

    Thank you but as I've said I have 7mm on the front treads and that doesn't answer my question about the rears unless you're inferring that it makes no difference?

    The OEM Zeros stink and already are being worked hard. Adding more rear meat is going to make the front's job even harder.

    Stick with a second set of 295 rears and hope all four tires get tired at the same time.

    Then go get the new PS4 Michelins. They are impressive!

    Personally I'd pitch all four of the Zeros regardless of what's left up front and get the PS4s.
