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.

Update for 2020

***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

Default 2021 update ?

just about to pull the trigger on a set of Continental Extreme Contact Sport

Unless anyone has any negative feedback..

Going to run race tires on other rims I decided so looking for a good all around street tire.

also These are the same price as the Rival 1.5. do either of these have any figment advantage I may need some room on full lock turn

I have been running the Continental tire for
several years on the front of my car due to limitations
in sizes that fit... Do some mountain carving with no issues
I do run Dot road race tires for tracking and also on the road
