Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama S.drive

I bought these to upgrade to larger rims to give me more grip and stability. My Camaro is now equipped with a 2002 spec Corvette Z06 LS6 motor and I needed more grip. The car's handling is responsive like it was riding on rails and taking the twistys is done with confidence. I have only put a small amount of mileage on them so far, and highway cruising is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

i'm a car nut, my other 2 cars are a corvette ls3 and a 67 ss chevelle and i'm very fussy when it comes to my cars. my previous replacement tires were michelin took 3 tries to balance and never got it right, they were noisy. these tires balanced up first try with very little weights added, road noise was reduced a lot and the ride improved, feels better then...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The OEM GYs were gone at 10K miles and were treacherous to drive in the rain. As wide as they are, there is no hydroplaning with the Michelins and at the current wear rate I expect to get 30K miles from them. Bad compared to my Equinox that will go at least twice that on the OEM Michelins, but great for a super high performance summer tire on a Corvette....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Radial T/A

These tires are on a corvette i drive ocassionally. the only complaint is the white lettering on the tires has turned brown and wont wash or sand off. the tires handle and wear good for a 15 tire, even though its getting hard to find them. I may have to flip the tires over to blackwall even though its a hassle to do that....   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus ZP

92,000 on my 2003 corvette, 78,000 on Michlen AR zp tires. 40,000 on the first set and the second set are still on the car. GREAT TIRE   Read More

Longest-Wearing Z-Rated Performance Tires

What can drivers of sports cars and high performance vehicles with low profile, Z-rated Ultra High Performance All-Season tires do if they want to have longer wearing tires? In the past, the best a driver could hope for, in regards to treadwear, was an option that lasted approximately 20,000 miles. This was the case for so long that it has become a common...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus ZP

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...  Read More

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

This is the second time I have purchased these tires for one of my Corvettes. I switched from the OEM Supercar tires and the ride comfort is now fantastic. It was like switching from heavy stiff work boots to soft cushioned sneakers. These are much quieter than the run flats. I bought an emergency tire repair kit for piece of mind. These tire have an...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2

Goodyear will score well with the Eagle F1 Asymmetrical 2 offering. I wanted an non-run flat for our 09 Corvette and this new Goodyear seemed to be the pick of the litter. With a 45k mi. tread wear warranty it fit our expectation for performance in a daily driver that would see all types of driving conditions. Our most recent outing included a 700 mile round...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle GT (V-Speed Rated)

I replaced a set of Riken Raptors with the Goodyears. Much less noise, much better ride, better MPG and improved handling. I drive both mountain twisties and long freeway runs, and in both situations these are superior tires. Good grip under hard corniering and braking. I haven't had them long enough to report on tire wear, as the Z3 is a third car even...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

These Hankook Ventus K110 tires are great. In comparison to the ROCK HARD Goodyears that came on my Corvette when new, there is no comparison as the Hankooks are far superior.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport

My Corvette is making just under 500hp at the wheels and I am very impressed with traction these tires have. My last set of tires were getting old (hard) and would brake loose in 3rd and 4th gear. These tires have yet to brake loose in second gear let alone any gear above that. While driving on a wet surface this is not the case though. These tires have just...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle RS-A

RSA tires are a dichotomy (extreme good/bad). I am writing to warn that GY must have changed design, manufacturing process/location or materials for the RSA for the worst. Our 2010 Nissan Maxima SV-Sport originally came with the GY RSA tire & we loved it for what it was (all-season performance style tire for family 4-door sports car). It was smooth...  Read More

Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP Offered for Your C6 and C7 Corvette

The Michelin Pilot Super Sport was the tire that set the bar for all other Max Performance Summer tires upon its introduction. Never before could a tire from this performance category give you such excellent grip in the dry and wet, and wear about 30% longer than its leading competitors, while also giving you a smooth and quiet ride. This tire can do it all...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

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...  Read More

Want to Drive Your Corvette When it Gets Cold? These Tires Will Help!

Nearly every Corvette owner I've met will admit that while their car may not be the most practical, they feels it's the most fun to drive than any other car they've owned. Even though the current C6 came with Goodyear run-flat tires that were intended for warm temperatures only, most Corvette owners would love to take their cars out on a clear and cold day...  Read More

Best Replacement Tires for the Run-Flats on C6 Corvettes

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 Micheli...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

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...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

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...  Read More

Popular Run-Flat Tires for Your C5 Corvette

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...  Read More
