I just ordered the Michelins at my local Discount Tire store. Thanks to all for the input.

Good choice as well, as previously stated, you can never go wrong with Michelins. I've been using the 4S for over a year and they are great. Do very well on road courses as well until they get too hot and a little slippy, but not as bad as many other tires.

Picked them up today. Just have to change the brake pads and oil and will be back on the road. Cant wait to see the difference between new tires vs 10 year old run flats. Probably going to feel like a different car.

Tires look great I am considering the 4S as well and would like to hear your thoughts once you have some mileage on the Michelinís as I will also be replacing 10 year old GYs. Do you plan to carry a 12v compressor and plug kit or ?

No I plan to just chance it. I typically dont go very far distances from home and the car is a weekend fun toy. I do have free road side assistance from Michelin or my insurance of needed.

So initial impressions are great! The car rides smoother, less road noise and it may be my imagination but the steering feels more nimble. I didnt get a good opportunity to get on it too hard yet to see how they hook up for me. Time will tell. Should be pretty decent for my stock Z06.

Luke,

I have a 16 zo6-z07 package. I want to switch from the cups to ps4's. I believe this is the closest size for Fronts 295-30-19 Rears 325-25-20. Is this the closest match and have you heard of others doing this? Im told it doesnt effect anything and are slighly larger? originals are fronts 285-30-19 rears 335-25-20

I saw where it come with hydraulic hoses. For power source does it need an air compressor or does it run off normal 115V AC power?

Quickjacks are electric over hydraulic, and yes they are normal 115V AC. Once your vehicle is raised and on the safety bars, you can disconnect the hydraulic hoses and put the power unit away...super slick units.

When you buy a quick jack it comes with everything you need except the hydraulic fluid. Mine is the 115V AC but they make them with an adaptor to hook to your battery so it can be used at the track or where ever. I do like the fact that you can raise it up and let it down on the safety locks then disconnect the hoses and pump. It makes lifting the car worry free Nd I feel soooooooo much safer under the car than I did on jack stands.
