These were original tires that came with our 2010 Camaro. We replaced them at 28500 miles with same P Zero tires. Around 22000 they lost their grip in wet surface/snow. These are summer tires, however we drive this car on daily basis and new tires are great. Tires wore off equilly as they aged.

Friday, February 22, 2013 by Doc Horvath

Hotchkis has been well known as a manufacturer of performance-oriented suspension products for a variety of vehicles for many years. Building on their knowledge and quality reputation, Hotchkis is proud to offer a new line of performance wheels available in 20" sizes to fit modern Mustangs, Camaros, Challengers and more.

The H-Sport model features a unique multi-spoke design in both a black and silver painted finish that's available in staggered widths to give you the option of a wider rear tire for that classic muscle car look. All Hotchkis wheels are machined to accept the factory tire pressure sensors. We also offer new sensors for sale if your vehicle requires.

They also feature a brushed aluminum face with either a silver or black accent for the barrel and center sections of the wheel. All Hotchkis wheels have multiple layers of clearcoat paint to protect the brushed aluminum from pitting under their one-year limited warranty.

Hotchkis' Y-Sport has the more modern split-spoke look associated with European sport sedans and coupes. The wheel is available in a matte graphite silver finish with or without the brushed aluminum face. Like the other models, the Y-Sport comes complete with all new lug nuts and center caps at no charge for a complete and hassle-free install.

Bought these tires 3 winters ago for winter use (as part of a package with rims from Tirerack.com) for our 2010 Camaro LT2 RS as an alternate to the stock Pirelli summer tires. They handle well in the dry, good cornering, stopping and accel. They've worn very well considering they have seen mostly dry conditions (NY-Long Island area). In the limited snow use they do well and I think it would take going over a mound of snow that would be higher than the clearance hight to strand you. I noticed when I first bought them they were used as the winter tires on the Nassau County police cars. Bottom line, I would recommend them. NOTE: Make when you buy a winter tire/rim package that you state whether your Camaro is 6 or 8 cylinder because the Brembo calipers on the 8 cylinder may require a different wheel.

After 39750 miles on the OEM Pirelli P-0 that came on my Camaro when I bought it. My son said,"Dad stick with what you know,great tread life,handling,ride". Because after reading reviews of other tires and brands,some newer, some cheaper, Pirelli is what I came back to. Quiet! Most of the reviews of other tires said they were noisey. Not These! I would also like to tell you about my Wonderfully easy experience with buying tires from Tirerack.com and having them installed at my local SEARS Auto Center in Burlington New Jersey. Ordered on Thursday night,they got to SEARS Monday morning, I stopped by, they had me bring the car right in. One hour later, BAM, new tires, installed for $14 each. EASY!! That's what I say about Tirerack.com and SEARS!!!

 

Hurst Gives Your New Mustang or Camaro That Old School Look with the Shaker

Friday, December 28, 2012 by Doc Horvath

Ever since Detroit restarted the muscle car war with the new Camaro and Mustang, many people have looked to give these vehicles a retro look with classic five-spoke wheels. In an effort to mix old school looks with modern finishes, Hurst has introduced the Shaker in 20" staggered width fitments for both vehicles. The wheel is also a fit for the following applications:

  • Pontiac G8
  • Chrysler 300
  • Dodge Charger
  • Dodge Magnum
Hurst Shaker
Hurst Shaker
Hurst Shaker
Hurst Shaker


Shaker wheels retain the classic five-spoke design with an innovative design that allows the owner to use either black or gold inserts in the center of the spokes to personalize the application. The inner barrel and sides of the spokes are painted black and clearcoated to hide brake dust, while the edges of the spokes are machined to expose brushed aluminum underneath for contrast. Available in both 20x8.5 and 20x10 sizes, the Shaker wheel is perfect for either a square set-up with the 8.5" wide wheel on all four corners or a mix of the two widths to put the wider tires and wheels on the back axle only. 

To see if the Shaker is a fit your vehicle, visit our Upgrade Garage.

No snow last year and just had the first snow this year. These tires were awesome! I moved and now live on a gradual hill. The perelli tires would have spun and I would be stuck. The g-max tires gripped through the snow with no issues. I no longer fear the snow!
Rain traction is great too. Dry traction is fine but there is a slight sidewall flex. I actually like this over perelli's stiffness.

this is the most comfortable tire i have yet to run in a 18. has a level of comfort and still lets you feel like your in a sports car without cringing every time you hit a bump. holds the car out of the hole and exceeded my expectations in the corners. was running hankooks before and the ride quality suffers too much. normally with the t/a's i have always ran them on a 15in wheel was curious to see them on this car and ended up being pleased with them. it may not be the zenith of performance tires but you get a lot more tire than you pay for.

I have about 2500 miles on a full set. Dry and warm roads traction is not the best as these are winter tires. I did roll on about 300 miles in a 3 to 5 inch wet sloppy ice and snow mixture and I am impressed. From a dead stop the tires can break loose easily, however feather the throttle and you have great traction. There is no 'slush steering' the car tracks straight and true. I am able to stop and proceed on hills and felt very stable at highway speeds. The Camaro will never be confused with my 4X4 but these tires are quite and provide a great deal of confidence. As I have to run the SS this winter this is a purchase I'm glad I made.

These Generals are just so much better than the Factory summer Pirelli's! The Pirelli tires were completely shot at about 20,000 miles - these General tires have over 17,000 miles on them and the treadwear is insignificant. These tires are perfect for my Camaro - they handle well and provide excellent wet & dry traction. I would DEFINITELY recommend these tires.

I had a set of KDWS on the car before and enjoyed the all season performance, ran them until they were bald. When I bolted on these tires, ( and I got the optional rear 275/40R17 and new wheels) I was amazed at the grip in the dry. My car is Glued or Magnetized stuck to the road! I don't drive the car in the rain much but got caught in a wet road condition one day. I saw other cars sliding around and am sure I would have been too on a different tire, these tires still felt amazingly stuck to the road! I am always testing the limits of these tires and have not been disappointed yet. The only thing I would say- and it doesn't bother me at all, they are noisey - er than some tires would be. You feel the road with these and hear different pavements too. I think it enhances the driving experience rather than detracts, they are a responsive tire. If you want amazing grip - GET THESE!

The Pirelli Tires are good tires, but the problem I have with them is the Tread wear. They just don't last long enough. I have them on my 2010 Camaro, they look good and perform good but the tread wear is way below the average.

 

All-Season Options When Replacing Your Camaro's Summer Tires

Thursday, November 1, 2012 by Steve Huffman

The muscle car lives and the new Camaro is proof. Since 2010, these pony cars have been prowling the streets of America and can be seen almost anywhere. By now, the time to start looking at replacing the tires for many has come. If your Camaro came equipped with 20s, they came stock with the Pirelli P Zero. While this is a fantastic Max Performance Summer tire, it's not designed as a long-lasting option that can provide cold weather traction. Granted, most Camaro owners aren't going to be using the vehicle in the snow, but there might be some drivers looking for traction when the temperature drops below 40 degrees. And more than a few owners looking to get a tire that will last longer than the Original Equipment.

Compared to when the car was introduced, today there are a few all-season options for the new Camaro. Included in these options are the Continental ExtremeContact DWS, Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval AS (W-Speed Rated) and General G-MAX AS-03. According to our Tire Survey Results, the ExtremeContact DWS is the best performer in light snow conditions. It also has the highest treadwear rating.

If you're looking for an excellent value option, take a look at the Firestone tire. It molds an all-season rubber compound into a symmetric tread design that blends dry road handling with wet, wintertime traction. Its internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon, along with a carcass reinforced by a hard sidewall filler between polyester cord plies to help resist distortion at high speeds and while cornering.

The General G-MAX AS-03 is currently ranked third in our survey as customers like its treadwear, wet traction and hydroplaning resistance. Three-dimensional sipes increase the number of snow-biting edges to aid wintertime traction, as well as lock together to enhance dry and wet handling. I also think the tire looks pretty cool, too!

I've had these tire on for about 25k and they almost look new still. They are not the best tires on the market, but they are not the most expensive either. I'm sure there are better tires out there but not for the price. I had Firestone's on before these and they were ok on dry pavement, but lousy on wet. These Kumho's stick like glue on dry corners, and are pretty good in the wet. When they do break loose, they are very predictable. I wouldn't hesitate to put another set on when these wear out.

I purchased these tires at the begining of summer to mount on a set of factory '12 camaro 20" wheels. The look, feel, and stance of my car was all changed for the better and couldnt be happier. Wet performance is excellent as these tires assure a firm feel for the road at 85mph in the rain. Dry performance is no slouch either. I drive agressively and this tire takes all the input I give it. The heavier wheel hurt my braking performance but bringing 4000+ lbs of 4dr sedan to a halt quickly is within this tires capability. No noticeable uneven/unusual wear so far. I have not tested in the snow but my Blizzaks on factory 19's will go back on for winter duty. I will buy General Tires again. For the money, these tires are hard to beat.

Bought this tire after the bridgeatones I had on previously were discontinued. These tires match up every way with those bridgestones (re960) except for hydroplaning resistance. These tries do tend to be more effected by large puddles of water, but they are still good at resisting hydroplaning. These tires are better with regaurd to dry traction (lower treadwear rating) and just as capable if not better on a wet road than my previous re960. The ride comfort being better I would atribute to the 60% sidewall as compared to the 55% of the re960. Overall a very good tire...I am very happy with my selection.

I am very happy with how these tires and holding up. They are wearing evenly and slowly I would not have expected to get the kind if mileage I'm going to end up getting out of them, I would guess 60,000-70,000 by the time I get to the wear bar and on a soft compound...this is just amazing.

OEM for the 5th Gen Camaro SS. This is a very sticky tire. Great traction. Great wear as long as you keep the tires going the same speed as the car. ;) I had ~40,000 miles on the rears with 3/32" tread left, and wanted to try something else, so I bought a pair of General AS-03s. What a mistake! They wandered all over the place, requiring almost constant steering correction. They also broke loose in the corners AT POSTED SPEED. The Pirellis are great. Predictable, safe, reasonably quiet. Cornering is excellent, even at 15-20MPH over the posted speed on a outward-sloping on ramp. A wonderful tire to have if you need to stop NOW! They just squat and STOP! I'm sticking with Pirellis.
