You've been having fun with your Corvette. But lately you've noticed some loss of wet traction and more tire noise. A quick look at the tread depth shows it's time for some new running shoes. Road noise and ride quality comprise most of the dissatisfaction owners have relayed to Tire Rack about their original tires. While staying with a run-flat tire on the Corvette will make huge improvements in these areas more difficult, there are some options that do move to correct them.
The option that is working the best is the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 ZP.
Here are some comments from owners:
"...They provide better traction than the original Goodyears and yet seem to be lasting much longer. I would highly recommend them for high horsepower, aggressively driven cars." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2008 Chevrolet Corvette C6 Convertible
"...The Michelin's ride, handle and corner better and at 19,500 miles were measured at 7/32 inch tread depth (new is 9.5/32)." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2008 Chevrolet Corvette C6 Convertible
"...They ride smoother and they corner and accelerate like I had hoped the car would." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review
The feedback has been so overwhelmingly positive that it's currently ranked 2nd in our surveys for all Max Performance tires.
Keep in mind there are different size set up possibilities for different years and models of the C6 Corvettes. The options available for your Vette's needs may vary. For more information, contact one of Tire Rack's sales specialists.
