Replacement Tire Options for C6 Corvette

Sunday, October 17, 2010 by Ed Singleton

When replacing tires on a Corvette you can go one of two ways, either run-flat tires or non-run-flat tires. Run-flat tires are Original Equipment and the vehicle doesn't have a spare tire, but many Corvette owners use non-run-flat tires.

Here are some popular run-flat tire choices:
Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 ZP           Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus ZP          Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval RFT
  Michelin                           Michelin                       Firestone

Here are some popular non-run-flat tire choices:
Hankook V12 evo K110           Continental ExtremeContact DW          Michelin Pilot Sport PS2
  Hankook                         Continental                 Michelin

A ContiComfortKit will air up your tire and seal small punctures if needed. This is a nice tool if you choose non-run-flat tires.

If I buy the Continental DWS, what would I do about a spare tire since it isn't a run flat. Do you sell a donut tire for a C6 vette?. What do you suggest.

Gerson. Unfortunately we do not carry a spare wheel/tire for the Corvette. The only thing I could suggest is getting something like the Continental ContiComfortKit. Its a 12 volt air compressor with a latex liquid tire sealant.
