New Tyre Choice


Afternoon all,

Quick question for those that have bought tyres recently - any recommendations? Looking at the Michelin website, it looks like the old faithful PS2s are no longer in production. Have a slow puncture on my front, so if they can't fix it going to have to replace with some new rubber. 2007 model, so 245/40 R18 front and 285/35/R19 rears.

Any thoughts welcome!

Cheers

You could try www.oponeo.co.uk I got a full set of Michelin Pilot Super Sports for
a C6 Z06 for only 880.

Thanks for the recommendation. Luckily the tyre was repaired (faulty valve) so hopefully some life in them yet. Will look to these guys when I need a few set though. Good prices.

They have PS2's available on the site. I'm looking to change. The Super Sports are only 2 more but the PS2look like they have a better rating in the wet?

Re: New Tyre Choice


The MPSS on my Z06 are very good in the wet, night and day to the originals.
I would recommend the Michelins.

Re: New Tyre Choice


Yes, think if you look at the tyre labels for the Michelins, they have better (one notch) "wet" rating than the Kumhos. And, Michelins seem to be the tyre of choice for UK C6 Vetteheads. Have Pirelli P Zero Rossos on mine, only because I got them cheap(ish). Seem OK. So have Audi TT fronts and Ferrari 430 rears (the shame).

Obviously the Kumhos are gonna be cheaper? 165 each for the rears?

I suppose it depends what the car is used for. If it's just weekend sun fun I doubt you will notice much difference and get to save a bit of money for more toys.
No complaints with the kumhos so far from me.

Agree - Will certainly look at the Kumhos next time I need new ones.
