So, if anyone runs this setup, do you have any pics? I'm thinking of buy a set of michelin pilot super sport and they are not avalible in 275/35-18. I'm afraid that the tires will look to high.. what do you think?

But they are. :)

You need order them from US...click here Specs or Sizes:

Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Personally went 285 rear without spacers and works nicely. Just need new wheels&spacers for quad 285.

Firmer, more traction and more directional ride compared to old PS2 IMO

how can you order them to ship in Europe? I only get option to enter US or Canada ZIP...
Contact them directly not thru automatic order form. I actually used chat option on their page when its daytime there and you can get popup to chat with them directly.

Used banktransfer to pay.

Worked nicely, received tires at Finland 9 days after order.
