Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

I have had the same tire on my Corvette previously. It's the only one available in this size, so I really had no choice in what I had to buy. The tires are satisfactory, confident handling, great traction. A little squirmy because they are new, but hoping they will firm up as they were. The last set of these lasted me ten years, they still had plenty of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

Drive only HPDE Mustang 2011 with a full roll cage. Like to drive in both the rain and dry this is why I bought a extreme performance street tire. This is a fantastic tire for track use, I have driven 14 track days on this same tire with very little wear and it looks like it has a fair amount of life in it yet. Have been to tracks such as Road America,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT

Tire is exceptional in the rain or in the dry. Very quiet. Only problem is staggered fitment which meant I only got 20K on rear tires but Bridgestone replaced 2 tires for price of one so I can't complain since the fronts should easily make the advertised 40k. Better value than Michelin, Pirelli, Goodyear, Continental or Dunlop on a 2011 Corvette.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I was looking for a replacement for the OEM run-flats on my 2014 corvette. Settled on the Pole Positions and I have been pleasantly surprised with the performance of these tires. They bring out much more of the performance capability of the 'Vette. They are quiet and extremely smooth, and well priced. With the OEM tires, the rear end had a tendency to step...  Read More

New Sizes for the Streetable Track & Competition Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R

Were you hoping to find more choices in your size for the track? This December, Pirelli channeled their inner Santa Claus and released many new sizes for the Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R. The Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R made a name for itself by being the tire of choice the most track-ready fifth-generation Camaros. A maniacal effort to cut weight coupled with...  Read More

Winter Tire Option Now Available for C7 Corvette Z51 Package

If you drive a new 2015 Chevy Corvette with the optional Z51 performance package, you know how difficult it can be to find tire options. The 245/35R19 front and 285/30R20 rear tire sizes are unique to the Corvette and are not commonly found in the market place or on other higher volume vehicles. Currently, there are a few manufacturers that offer all-season...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

Best tires I've had, Aggressive driving. I wore them out in 8000 miles doing burnouts and autocrossing the truck. I have an LS3 Corvette V8 in my single cab pickup. When the tires were new, they made ZERO road noise and rode smoothly. I took them through 8 of slushy snow and they performed. I took them through severly soft sand in a well traveled river bed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I really can only echo the other comments on this tire for the C6 Corvette. Twice the tire as the stock run-flats at about half the cost. Well OK, so maybe not twice, and maybe not half... Hold on: yep, it IS exactly half -- I just checked at my last invoice for the OEM tires.Haven't had them long and no wet weather experience, but these things rock. Far...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

I put these tires on a C6 Corvette and could not be happier. They have the appropriate speed rating for a 'vette and perform beyond my expectations. The OEM run flats sounded like snow tires. Was difficult to hear the radio at freeway speeds. To compensate for the tire not being a run flat, I bought a tire pump from Groits Garage and a plug kit for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

I really like these tires. The tread on them will never allow them to be considered with the best handling tires in the max performance category, but for an all-season tire they are very impressive. I bought them because tread wear was more important to me than handling, but I was pleasantly surprised at how well they hold the road, and how comfortable and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Best overall performance tire made. Awesome on the M3 and Z06 Corvettes. Great performance. Great feel. Good wear.   Read More

Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 vs Michelin Pilot Super Sport

If you were to check out customer survey results for the top two tires in the Max Performance Summer category, you would find that the Michelin Pilot Super Sport is currently ranked number one. I've used a set on my own vehicle and you can learn about my experience by taking a look at "Michelin Pilot Super Sport Tires Installed on My Car." The second...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Bought the DWS Conti's for my C5 Corvette based on reviews and I've also had a set on a BMW M3 that I drove year round. They are very,very quiet and they ride much nicer than the OEM run flats. The softer sidewall results in steering response that is not as sharp as summer tires, but once you turn in, the tires grip well and are predictable. Traction is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KR21

I'm a 67yo retired COP. Saying this I still drive lika a COP, but I am driving a Kia Sportage. Nice running veh., but not a Corvette. So far I am extremely pleased with these tires. They gave me good handling & traction in snow when living in Maryland. Now in Myrtle Beach, SC I longer think of ice & snow. Wet weather traction is great, as is highway &...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport

I needed to buy a set of tires for my mostly stock C5 corvette. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on tires for my weekend ride but I still wanted something with great dry handling. These tires have exceeded my expectations!Dry performance is amazing. These tires grip very well when warmed up for spirited driving. If it drops below 60 degrees, they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I Daily Drive C5 Corvette all year in Michigan. I drove the car to the airport on un-plowed roads at 4:00AM Feb 2 and made it all the way - That was 13 of the worst snow storm we've had here since 1974. I stayed in the 2track paths of 4x4 trucks mostly - but this was still deep enough you could feel the snow dragging on the bottom of the car for the 25 or so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP

Great performance tires on all road conditions but I am a little disappointed. At 23,000(rated for 30,000) miles the tread still has more to go but there is excessive tire noise thumping, often called feathering, caused by flat spots on the outside edge of the tire. Four wheel alignment and balance has always been spot on. The noise is forcing me to go...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I've had several sets of different tires on the rear of my Corvettes. These Michelins are by far the best (also, the most expensive) tire. Dry handling is phenomenal. I did not rate wet traction as I avoid driving my 02 Corvette in the rain (I have four vehicles).   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Awesome tires. They stick like glue to the road. Very little road noise but a tad more than other tires I have owned. However, not nearly as noisy and the Goodyears or Bridgestones I have had in the past. Very responsive and good tire wear. I drive freeways and mountain roads a lot. City driving occasionally.Love these tires and I bought them for my '11...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z II

Purchased these because they were the cheapest thing available and they looked cool. I drive in a very spirited manner over local Mtn Roads. The car also gets some autocross use and A little Drag racing. It is modified with a 3.42 rear from a z06 and a higher stall. The car also has a performance tune and exhaust with plans for future performance upgrades....  Read More
