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.

 

Best Replacement Tires for the Run-Flats on C6 Corvettes

Thursday, August 8, 2013 by Colin .

Many Corvette owners ask about switching to non-run-flat tires for multiple reasons, including cost, selection and ride quality. For standard C6 sizes, there are a number of excellent non-run-flat options to choose from with the 245/40R18 size in the front and 285/35R19 in the rear.  

The best performance tires in terms of handling and traction are the Michelin Pilot Super Sport and Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position. Both options will give you superior handling, cornering, braking and acceleration in the dry and wet. Between the two, our testing showed the Michelin as the reigning king of the Max Performance Summer category.  

If you don't need the highest performance and want more of a value-priced tire, the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110, Continental ExtremeContact DW and Sumitomo HTR Z III would be good tires for your Corvette. Each tire will deliver good performance at a lower price point.

Some Corvette owners need an all-season option and Michelin's new Pilot Sport A/S 3 improves upon their A/S Plus in just about every category. The Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season is another great choice that offers responsive handing and very good wet and dry traction. It offers confidence-inspiring all-season traction for those who want to drive their vehicle any time of the year.

HUGE improvement over the OEM Goodyears. Much better wear. I should be able to exceed 20,000 miles on these tires without difficulty. Even though these are also RFTs they still ride much better and are far less noisy than the Goodyears. If you have a GS 'Vette and want RFTs, I recommend these tires very highly.

When others had written that this tire had "transformed" their Corvette I said "OK, anything is better than the OEM Goodyear F1s,and they're just being enthusiastic". NO, they were being HONEST and ACCURATE!! The Michelin Pilot Super Sports are quieter, have much better traction, and ride far superior to the OEM!! These are the tires that GM should have put on such a capable car as my 2010 Corvette Grand Sport! I did opt out of the run-flats and I know that is where the better ride comes from. I only got 10500 miles out of the OEM tires and the hydroplaned horribly on a cross country trip last August. We drove down to Bowling Green last week for a Corvette Museum event and the new Michelin tires performed perfectly in the rain we got on Friday and Saturday.
If you are looking to put new shoes on your Corvette, the Michelin Pilot Super Sports can't be beat!!

Initial Review, 45,000 Miles on Tires
April 24, 2013

I've worn out two or three sets of the predecessor of this tire (Turanza Serenity) and after having gone through numerous other tire brands Michelins, Yokohamas, Goodyears, have to say that this tire is the best of those by a significant margin. These tires offer very good cornering grip... amazing actually. Great wet and dry traction and decent traction in snow and ice. Where they really shine is ride quality, comfort and noise level.

Bear in mind that I rate this tire as what it is... a Grand Touring Tire. It won't compete against special purpose tires but neither will they match this tire for this intended use. Unless you can use the last 10% to 15% of the performance that high performance tires offer you will be FAR, FAR happier with a tire such as this. The difference in comfort and combined performance will serve most drivers better the majority of the time. (As a footnote... I own and drive two Trans Ams, two Corvettes, a Grand Prix GXP, and other assorted cars). I have run high / ultra-high performance tires on those cars and unless I'm pushing the edge of the envelope, these tires perform more than adequately.... and they are FAR more comfortable over potholes, expansion joints and they don't drone you to death with tread noise.

One BIG side benefit not usually thought about is that these tires give me 45K miles +/- of wear and I replace them before they get down to the wear bars. So... while I'm wearing out HP and Ultra-HP tires at 20-25K miles I'm only at the halfway point of having to replace these. So... they save a lot of money up front and again over the far greater lifetime.

I love these tires and will be ordering my next set in the next week.

Good luck in your choices... but if I might make one suggestion it would be this. Look very carefully at what you NEED in a tire for the majority of your driving... and don't overestimate your need for that final 10% of performance. Most people never even get close to using that final 10%.

 

Popular Run-Flat Tires for Your C5 Corvette

Thursday, May 2, 2013 by Marshall Wisler

Arguably, one of the best bang-for-the-buck performance cars available on the market today is the fifth-generation Corvette. While it doesn't have the power figures of the C6 or the magazine coverage of the new seventh-generation Stingray, this car and its popular LS1 engine is capable of excellent power.

C5 Corvettes from the factory (non-Z06 models) use a 245/45R17 front tire and 275/40R18 rear. For those looking to step away from run-flat tires, your options are numerous. However, if you wish to keep the car equipped with run-flats, there are not as many choices. Our most popular sellers in the aforementioned sizes are:

Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus ZP is designed to last considerably longer than a dedicated summer tire. This Ultra High Performance All-Season tire has a speed rating up to 186 mph and features a responsive sidewall with a harder tread compound than the Original Equipment offering. Buyers will notice sharp turn-in response that is commonly associated with high speed rated tires, but will give up some ultimate lateral grip when compared to a softer compounded summer tire. While these tires aren't intended for track use, they are more than capable for aggressive street driving.

Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 ZP has long been a front runner in the Max Performance Summer category. The PS2 is offered in a run-flat fitment for the C5 Corvette and is a great choice for a driver looking for a premium tire with excellent performance attributes. While the PS2 will sacrifice some wear compared to the A/S Plus ZP, its grip limit is exceptional. This tire has been well reviewed for its great performance and excellent road manners.

April 16, 2013

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 just got back today from using these for auto-x on my 93 Corvette with Z07 suspension and aggressive alignment. These tires just plain work, even on a heavy car in cold/wet/dry conditions. It was actually snowing and later got up around 45 or a little less. I kept pace (within a couple tenths or so) with near FTD C5Z06 (Hoosiers, not good at all in those conditions). I was impressed, dry grip is excellent. Breaks away predictably and smoothly. Tires do perform in cold/wet/dry conditions, with due caution exercised.

Quick warm up on tires, only 3 runs and they were warm. Grip got better as I went.

Excellent tire and works well on my Corvette.

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...

I put these on my GTI because it came with some Pirelli Pzero All Season tires that would not hold traction with an APR Stage 2 tune. These tires immediately transformed the car into a much more stable platform, both in straight line as well as cornering. These tires bite the ground aggressively.

I put 20k miles on them and show very little wear, I don't know how Michelin does this, but as a result I just purchased a set for my 2011 Corvette Grand Sport. This car's OEM Goodyear Supercar Gen2 runflats were at the wear bars in 9,000 miles!

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.

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.
