Go to 315s and run Michellin PS2s

Buy 19s for the rear and future proof your build.
I don't think I am going to go with 19's right away at least I just wont have the $$ to do so.. Thank you for the advice it's been really valuable. I looked at https://www.tacomaworld.com/tirecalc...0r18-315-30r18
Comparing the tire size. Do you happen to have ay real life experience with the tire difference..>? is it negligible?

If you truly want to do some track time then Pilot Sports. You could go cheap but the more expensive tires tend to give you more miles anyway.

Dirt Cheap: Firestone Indy 500

***Add Yokohama A052, great in cooler weather and or wet for autocross. Does really well on seal coated lots when the BFG is very bad.

***Add Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperCar 3 Great track day tire, doesn't fall off after a couple of laps, sucks for autox when cold, sucks in the rain
