Initial Review, 5,300 Miles on Tires
March 16, 2013

The RE-11's are ultra high performance tires and delivered superbly on track. I drive numerous road tracks (Road America, Mid-Ohio, Gingerman, Blackhawk) and noted immediate improvments in dry traction and responsiveness over all other tires I've had on my base C6 (Nitto NT05, Toyo Proxes, Conti DW, stock Goodyear run flats). Traction was also very good in the wet although I did not have that many wet miles to make as thorough an evaluation. I've driven 5,300 total miles on the RE-11's with 1,350 miles on track. I probably have enough good tread for another 200-300 track miles. I consider this excellent wear for my type of driving with excellent performance. Unfortunately, I will not be able to use the RE-11's on my new Corvette Grand Sport because the sizes I need are not available. I recommend without reservation for track and aggressive road.

Review is for front (255/45ZR17 Continental ExtremeContact DW) and rear (285/40ZR17 Continental ExtremeContact DW) This is one of those cases where I immediately noticed a huge difference in ride, sound, responsiveness.... everything. Granted, the tires I had on the car before were passed their prime and weren't that great to begin with, but it felt like I was driving a brand new car. They are considerably quieter. I've only driven once or twice in rainy conditions, since having them installed, but it seemed to me that these tires are very good in the water. Cornering is like being on rails. Steering is much more responsive, and the wheel is much lighter in my hands. They don't look bad either.
TireRack - I ordered the tires on Monday and they were delivered to the shop on Tuesday. No issues whatsoever. I think that could be because there may be a distribution center south of Atlanta. The shop (Wayne's Auto) I go to has done business with Tirerack before and they were surprised how quickly they arrived too.

I have to write this review to talk about these tires. First the Goodyear F1 RFT came stock. They were great in the rain, good dry traction especially on the 1/4 mile track, hooked and leapt off the line, however the ride was horrible. One think I really did like about the Goodyears, they have a protective lip that covers the rims, protects them from curbs. The turn in was terrible. The Goodyears lasted 14,000 miles. The insides wore past the wear bars, on factory alignment.

Now on to the Michelins, unbelievable difference in ride quality and road noise over the Goodyears. These are non-runflats so the side walls actually give. Better ride more compliant over bumps, so far no tramming (live in the D.C. area 495 on and off a lot). The best part is the turn in these tires are so willing to turn and give you so much more confidence than the Goodyears. I cant believe the grip they have, the harder you throw them into a corner the better the grip. Have not got them to squeal yet. That will happen next week at the track. Will update next week after the track. They look a lot more aggressive on my rims as well.

I have 25,000 miles on my Z06 with 4 sets of tires worn out. Use these for hwy and HPDE. Compared to OEM G1 GY and Nitto NT05's. These tires are better. NT05 has better dry "feel" and softer sidewall as it is not ZP, but these and OEM GY had better G meter reading. These wear better than GY, feel better, feel faster, much better in rain, a bit quieter. 10/32 is 9.5/32 new per my micrometer, but that should be considered next to other tires like NT05 (6/32 new).. These are good all around tire, but will try PSS as they say they last longer on track AND give better grip. I'm dubious but I'll see... The ZP PS2 is a great tire.

I run these tires at 27 lbs cold using nitrogen. On good roads they're quiet, on crappy roads they're noisy (to be expected). Most of my driving is in CA, NV, and AZ. On hot days pressuresexceed the 30# spec and noise increases, but never gets as loud as the OEM tires. Looks like they're going to make30,000 miles on my Z-51 equipted C-6. Great tires...

What Are the Longest Lasting Run-Flat Tires for a C6 Chevrolet Corvette?

Thursday, April 4, 2013 by Zig Ziegler

In 1953, Chevrolet introduced America's first true sports car with the revolutionary sleek look of the Corvette. American's have been enamored with this vehicle ever since its humble beginnings when there was no manual transmission made that could handle its unbelievable 150hp. Things have changed since every model came with a two-speed Powerglide automatic transmission to the roaring 430hp V8 used in today's C6 models. Most current C6 Corvette (2005-2013) models are equipped with run-flat tires.

Frequently I hear from C6 Corvette owners: "What are the longest lasting run-flat tires?" Switching to an all-season rubber compound can significantly increase treadlife. For instance, the Max Performance Summer Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 ZP has a UTQG rating of 220, while the Ultra High Performance All-Season Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus ZP has a much higher UTQG rating of 500. Many C6 Corvette owners are willing to give up a bit of ultimate grip in order to switch to run-flat tires that can wear upwards of 30% longer. The two most popular Ultra High Performance All-Season run-flat replacement tires are the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus ZP and Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT

The Pilot Sport A/S Plus ZP (Zero Pressure) is the Ultra High Performance All-Season run-flat tire member of Michelin's Pilot family of low profile, high-speed tires. Developed in the Original Equipment sizes for Chevrolet Corvette C-5 and C-6 coupe and convertible sports cars, the Pilot Sport A/S Plus ZP is designed to temporarily support the weight of the car even after a loss of air pressure, as well as combine enhanced all-weather performance, wet grip and treadwear along with year-round traction, including in light snow.

Bridgestone's Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT tire is developed for drivers looking for enhanced ride quality and all-season traction for sports cars, sports coupes and performance sedans originally equipped with O.E. run-flat tires. It features Bridgestone 3G RFT Technology designed to offer almost the same riding comfort as conventional tires while providing temporary extended mobility for a distance of 50 miles at up to 50 mph even after a puncture has allowed complete air pressure loss. Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT tires provide year-round driving flexibility by offering predictable handling, traction and control on dry and wet roads.

When it's time to replace the tires on your Chevrolet C6 Corvette, be sure to shop by vehicle and view the list of longer wearing all-season run-flat tires.

This is my second set of the Pilots on this car. I've tried Hankook Ventus (good ride, but very soft compund and they only lasted 12000 miles) and Toyo TR-1s (not a great handling tire, and poor in the rain). These are great. You feel secure, they're not too stiff so you get an excellent ride. They're a bit noisy on grooved concrete, but the noise level is acceptable for the excellent performance.

Oddly, despite the wide footprint, they actually improved my gas mileage (17 city, 24 highway) which was about 17% better than the Hankook tires.

I drive the car in the mountains often in the summer, and the grip is fantastic. I will not try another brand for the 740 again. These are expensive, but worth it. I'll probably use them on my 2007 Z51 Corvette when the BFG KDW tires wear out.

February 13, 2013

This is the 5th different tire that I have tried for my 2003 Cobra which is upgraded to 500 HP and 600 Ft-Lbs at the rear wheels, so finding a tire that can get going off the line has been a struggle. I can say that OVERALL, these are the best tires I have ever owned, but they are also the most expensive. The responsiveness and ride comfort/noise level are better than the two different Kumho and Goodyears that I have had. The Kumho XS had a bit better traction from a dead stop, but they are softer so that is to be expected. Cornering grip and off the line grip is great for a tire that should last 20,000 miles, however, like the description says, these tires DO NOT WORK WELL IN COLD TEMPS!!! When it is below about 40 to 45 degrees it's like driving in the wet until the tires are warmed up which can take a few miles, and even then the performance is FAR lower than when the temps are above 50 to 60 degrees. Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase, and had I not upgraded the car to a 208 ZO6 Corvette I would have purchased them again. I had put about 10,000 miles on the tires when I sold it and there was about 65% treadlife remaining on the fronts (265-35-18), and about 50% left on the rears (315-30-18), and that is with quite a few smokey take-offs... 20,000 was what I was hoping for and would have gotten there no problem. The only other tires I had for the car that lasted that long was the Kumho XS, which I would rate as a close second, (probably a tie in performance ratings) but I could never get them balanced so there wasn't a shake over 100 mph, and once the treadlife was below 50% they were a bit sketchy in heavy rain, but that is somewhat to be expected for that type of tire.

Corvette C6 Run-Flat Tires: Get More for Your Money

Tuesday, February 26, 2013 by Gary Stanley

A couple of months ago I wrote "Get More for Your Money When Replacing Your Corvette's Run-Flat Tires" that covered fitments for the 1997-2004 C5 models of Corvettes. For those of you interested in the newer C6 model Corvettes (2005-2012), the front tire size is 245/40R18 and the rear size is 285/35R19. Although the original tires on the C6 Corvette are a newer design and generally higher regarded than the C5's tires, there's always room for improvement.

If you need to drive your C6 Corvette in near-freezing conditions or light snow, take a look at an all-season tire. Two of my favorite run-flat all-season tires are made in the C6's sizes, the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus ZP and Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT. Even if you don't need the cold weather capability of all-season tires, they're quieter and have a bit longer treadwear than their summer-only counterparts.

The top summer performance run-flat tires would be the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 ZP and Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval RFT. Keep in mind that these tires will lose much of their grip as the temperature nears freezing. They're not designed to be used on snow-covered roads or during icy conditions.

These tires are on my daily driver 2008 Corvette. They have performed as well on wet roads than the original Goodyear F1 GS2 and were equal to or better with regard to road noise. Ride is better with the RE11. Handling and dry traction is a huge improvement over the original Goodyears.

I bought a set of these tires because I was tired of the roar of my previous set of Goodyear tires. I also have set of these on my 370Z for the same reason. I want the best possible handling and comfort with the least noise. This is what you get with the Michellin Super Sport. It handles as well at those high end Goodyears and Bridgestone yet takes the hyper action and on edge feeling you get with those others. I no longer am making lots of corrections as I go down the road. Yet, when I get to those mountain roads the transistions are as good if not better than the formentioned. I really love these tires and when my Michellin Exalto's wear out on my SL500 I'm buying a set for that car. Same goes for my 2011 Maxima I love this tire that much. As far as tracking the BFG G-Force Super Sports are pretty good for the money as well just not as good as the Michellin Super Sport Tire. I've gone through a lot of tires and I like the Michellin SS the best for the money so far.

Max Performance Summer Tire Review: Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Monday, February 11, 2013 by Marshall Wisler

After several months as the class leader of the Max Performance Summer tire category, the Michelin Pilot Super Sport still continues to amaze. This tire, known and praised for its immediate turn-in response and dry drip, has also been well reviewed in the performance ratings of ride and noise comfort. We often see tires do one thing very well, however, very rarely do we see a tire with such high remarks across the spectrum. 

The Michelin Pilot Super Sport is a tire that you can enjoy day in and day out on your high performance street car and also hit the track should the opportunity arise. Initially introduced as Original Equipment on several of the world's most sophisticated performance vehicles, the Pilot Super Sport is now available in over 80 sizes. This rockstar tire is positioning itself to be a continuing major player for years to come.

With the tire being so popular, customers are sure to be saying great things about their experience with the Michelin Pilot Super Sport. Take a look at a few positive remarks from drivers who have equipped a set of these tires on their vehicle:

"I bought a set of these tires because I was tired of the roar of my previous set of Goodyear tires. I also have a set of these on my ?3D for the same reason. I want the best possible handling and comfort with the least noise. This is what you get with the Michelin Pilot Super Sport. I've gone through a lot of tires and I like the the Michelin PSS the best for the money!" -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2003 Chevrolet Corvette

"These Pilot Super Sports are the bomb! The handling is amazing. I can't think of a single negative thing I could say about them. They are the perfect high performance tire for good handling sports car in the dry. You can't go wrong with these tires in a California climate!" -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2000 Audi TT Coupe Quattro

"Simply phenomenal! They have made the ride smoother, quieter and are predictable while cornering at high speeds and under hard braking. I had the opportunity to track the car, as well and the result was the same: simply phenomenal!" -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 1995 Ferrari 456GT

Just drove my Corvette with these tires through the recent Christmas snowstorms in the Northeast US. These tires provide terrific traction on snow covered roads. Such poor conditions that the speed limit on I-81 was reduced by PennDOT. Was able to pass many others on the road while they were spinning their tires and I was confidently cruising. Many confused looks from other drivers on all-season tires while I passed them. A lot of other cars and trucks were off the road and I hardly had any issues, with traction control activating only twice in the 3 hours it took to travel from Binghamton NY to the Delaware Water Gap.

Cannot comment on traction in deep snow, but if the snow gets any deeper than 3 or 4 inches, the front air dam will be a snow plow and I wont be going anywhere anyways, but up to that point, these tires are very impressive.

I bought these tires to replace the stock Goodyear's that came on my 08 Vette. They are quieter by far, they give a softer ride and look like they'll easily give me 10,000 more miles than the OEM tires. They hook up in wet conditions and I have no problem driving in light snow (which I do regularly in the winter). I will buy these tires again.

I just put these Hankook tires on my car to replace the original Goodyear run flats that it came with from factory, after only 19,000 miles. As soon as I drove away from installation facility I could feel the advantage of these Hankooks. Quieter,smoother ride, traction are just some of the most notable assets. I took the car on a 350 mile trip the day after and am extremely pleased with the performance of these tires at half the price of Goodyears.I understand that these are non run-flats and having AAA will be a wise idea.
