Yep. Had them on my C5. Best tires I've had on any Vette. And a whole lot cheaper.

Those are all I've bought over the past 15 years for a half dozen vehicles. My GS came with new Michelin rubber, but will be replaced with Toyos when needed.

How do these tires compare in price to Continental Extreme Contact?

I didn't price the Continentals, I wasn't happy with the the way it handled (they're on the front and the BFG was on the rear)
Michelin was a consideration as most of the Corvette drivers use them but a tire shop owner who deals with a local Corvette club told me that a number of Corvette owners have switched to the Toyo and were happy with them.
