Tires and Wheels for Your 2012+ Porsche 911 Carrera S (991 C2S)

There may not be a substitute for a Porsche, but if you're taking your new 911 to track, there's definitely stickier tires that will help you achieve faster lap times.

Streetable Track & Competition tires, like the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2, let 911 drivers run great times at the track without the hassle of switching tires or towing. The Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 builds on the Pilot Sport Cup's blend of dry grip and street capability. It's not surprising that the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 is an Original Equipment choice for the 2015 Porsche 911 GT3.

These are all good choices, however the wider front wheel, lower rotational weight and wider footprint of the 20" O.Z. Racing Leggera HLT package is tough to beat. Whichever one you choose, there's no substitute for an awesome day at the track.
