Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

Replaced original Goodyear ZP on 2007 Corvette Conv. with 35K miles. Immediate reduction in road noise and comfort of ride. Sidewall is softer and absorbs noise much better than original run flat tires. Eliminated humm from back tires that I thought was just par for the course for tires with this much road contact. Paid more for independent garage to install...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I put a set of these tires on my Corvette immediately after delivery so I could drive it in cold weather as it had summer Michelins on it from the factory. I have driven in all weather conditions other than actual snow or ice covered roads. I have driven in temperatures as low as 15 degrees with no issues. Traction is excellent as is treadwear. I plan to buy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2

I am reviewing PSC2 regarding performance on track during an HPDE. I was using the PSS2 tires that came on my 2014 Corvette. They are great tires and performed well on the track. The performance of the Sport Cup 2 tires is far superior to the Super Sports. I was able to carry more speed through the curves, and took more than 3 seconds off lap times compared...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

1 0,000 miles on my Corvette and the cars handles and drives like a new car with these new tires.....This is the first change I've ever make from stock I've ever made on this car and what a wonderful change....i'll update later with more miles....   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

I recently bought a 2013 Corvette Grand Sport Coupe. It only had 8400 miles on it and it also had the original GY run flats. The handling, ride, and road noise were horrible. Today I had a set of Continentals from Tire Rack installed and it is a different car. Tracks straight (ie: no tramlining), smooooth ride, and negligible road noise. It is, in fact,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

2005 Corvette Z51 I was looking for a smooth riding tire without sacrificing handling. There is a handing difference, the F1's are much sharper steering and better dry traction. With that being said, the DWS is a better overall tire, and it lasts more than 1 season. Highly recommended.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

This is the 2nd set of Hankook tires I've installed on my '98 Corvette. I'm 62 years old and drive the car normally. No burnouts or hard aggressive driving. I do some spirited acceleration once in awhile after shifting into 2nd gear of the manual transmission and going into 3rd. I rated the tires as 8 in most categories and 5 in tread wear. These are summer...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP

This is the OEM tire on new Z51 and Z06 Corvettes (except for the Z07 package with the Cup tires). It's a solid tire for a daily driver -- no issues. What amazed me was how well the tire performed during a couple track days. Get a little heat into the tires, and they stick as well as Toyo R888's, which are a dedicated track tire I've used many times over the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Radial T/A

I purchased BF Goodrich Radial R/A (white raised letters) this month; thanks to the knowledge of my TR advisor was able to get this tire at 215/70 Front and 225/70 Rears. This brand and combination are not available on default based on my car but I insisted to get this brand and vintage look. The combination works really well and transformed my '64 Corvette...  Read More

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
