Michelin Pilot Sport tires for Corvette C5 and C6

Had a chance to see the new Corvette ZR1 in action at the Bondurant Driving School in Arizona, and was blown away by the power and handling of that car !  The ZR1 comes equipped from the factory with the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 (run flat) high performance tires, and they did exceptionally well on a car with over 600 HP !

Michelin now offers the same run flat tire in the correct sizes for "standard" C5 and C6 applications, and can also offer the All season version (Pilot Sport AS+) in run flat as well  for those that want a little more durability and grip in cooler temperatures.  In Michelin "language" ZP means Zero Pressure which means run flat !

Here's some details on both;

Michelin Pilot Sport AS+ ZP (runflat)

Most of my customers do not take their Corvettes to the track or drive them like race cars all the time, so the all season tires have been a great option to get some better durability and still have the safety of run flat tires.......

Here's an overview of all the tires available for the Corvette;
