Tire recommendations


Recommended Posts

Today had my car out at the track for a second time this summer. Had a great time and the car performed great, but my tires are now toast. Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for tires other than the stock tires (not looking to change my wheels)?

 

Also, anyone installed a brake cooling kit on their 2010 yet?

Daily driver with spirited driving? Or track tires?

 

For the former, Michelin PS2.

Plan is to drive it as much as I can in the summer and hit the track 2 to 4 times per summer. Thanks.

I have heard some good things about the Hankook Ventus V12 Evo K110. It ranked second in a Car and Driver Review against the PS2. I might give them a try. Even if they suck the cost makes it worth the risk.

Are you going with the stock size rears are trying to get a bit wider?? I wonder if anyone is trying a bit larger tire on the wheels.....would love to have some 305's on the rear (without the rubbing of course).

I'm not one for max hp if I can't keep it down. So, just how wide can you go on the front with out rubbing? I know the back can handle at least 305's. This, IMO, would increase handling tremendously and the car is already surprising testers everywhere.

305's??!! What's the widest we can fit on the stock rear wheel?

Wish I knew. But, the 305's are barely 1" wider than stock. The front would be my biggest concern. I used to have a '90 GT with stock 225's. I was able to put 245's max with out suspension mods. This was a superb and easy change that made the '90 handle like no other. On this car the back was more of a concern because of the "quadra shock" system. The 245's only had 1/4" clearance with stock rims. However, on the '10 GT500, I think the front is more of a concern.
