These are performance run flat extremely high quality sport tires. They are on a 350HP sport car and although it is driven with care and safety in normal city and country traffic and on hard paved roads, these tires just don't wear like fifty thousand mile tires do on large less "sportily driven" slower family sedans. That being said, I wouldn't have it any other way. These tires are great at what they have been designed to do, and no matter what I ask of them, they perform flawlessly. I trust them. I just keep buying them because they suit my style of easy and sometimes spirited driving and they are run flat. My Corvette has no room for a full size spare; don't like or trust the donut. Oh, as a note, only buy my tires from Tire Rack and am totally satisfied

Good tire. They are a bit heavier and stickier than my last set of Falken Sincera SN-828 which hurts my MPG by a little over 1 MPG, but these tires have a lot of grip at a great price. I will have to watch for tire wear, but it is too early to tell on that. I also don't use my summer tires in the winter so I won't be able to respond to that. So far so good. Very good price for this tire. They provide a lot of grip. No noticeable road noise even with windows down. I am happy so far.

Best Tires for Chevrolet Camaro

Thursday, June 12, 2014 by Zig Ziegler

The Chevrolet Camaro is one of my favorite American muscle cars. I think the car has a nice blend of old school style and new age design. Two of the most popular packages would be the RS and SS which provide optional 20" staggered tires and wheels. The Camaro RS and SS came from the factory with 245/45R20 in the front and 275/40R20 rear Pirelli P Zero Max Performance Summer tires.

When it comes to replacing tires on the Camaro, many drivers love the summer tires and look to go back to the equivalent level of grip and treadlife when choosing a replacement set, while others don't drive as aggressively and want a tire that provides a better ride and much longer treadlife.

If you're a Camaro owner that loved how the car performed when new and are happy with the ride and treadlife of a summer tire, take a look at staying with the Original Equipment. The tire offers excellent dry road traction. If you want to try something new, consider the Continental ExtremeContact DW which provides noticeably better wet traction and lower road noise.

If you're a Camaro owner who wants the best ride and longest treadlife at the expense of some grip, or would like to occasionally drive the Camaro in light snow, the Continental ExtremeContact DWS or General G-MAX AS-03 are both great options. Each tire would offer better treadlife over the Pirelli summer tire, along with the ability to drive the Camaro in freezing temperatures and light snow.

If it's time to change the tires on your RS or SS Camaro be sure to consider what you want most from your tires and choose something that best fits your everyday driving needs.
