    For stock 21 wheels, you can go with either size.
    If you go down to 265/30/21, you can order MPS4S, best summer street tire in the market now. I talked with TireRack rep, who told me the 275/30/21 should be released this month. If you can wait, then wait a little bit for the stock size.

    If you go up to 285/30/21 and don't want to wait, I will say go with MPSS, it is great tire which will eventually be replaced by MPS4S.

    I can wait if they will be released this month. I think idealy stock size would be best. I think id go up if nothing else because id think it would improve ride quality a little bit and close the fender gap some. How big of a difference was it going from stock to apr stage 1 tuning?

    That's what I've been told. I found the 275/30/21 size available but was in UK. I actually want to go with 285 to give an extra protection to the rim.

    Regarding to tune, the day I got my car back, it blew my mind how hard the car pulls. Considering it adds about 120 hp and 250 ft-lb of torque, it is totally worth it.

    My 7 rubbed with 285/30 21 albeit with 15mm spacers. Stick with stock.

    do you think it would of rubbed without spacers? we are talking about 2/10ths of an inch in height I guess the big difference is the width

    I don't think they will rub without spacers but I way prefer the look of 275/30 21 with 15mm spacers versus having 285 30 21 with no spacers.

    I would. We can get them in UK so it shouldn't be long.

    That's a hell of a deal, who'd you purchase through? Also what size did you get?

    How do you like the prism color? I am thinking of ordering one. I have been wanting to see one in person. It's hard to see one.
