When I Autocross and/or track I remount my Michelin Sport Cup2ís on OEM wheels for the extra traction. The Sport Cup 2ís however suck for drag races as I canít seem to get them hot enough during burn outs prior to the runs and they hold on to gravel picked up on return roads so hard the small stones have to be dug out with a screw driver. Hoping the Toyoís will be better.

Thanks man!

Default They fit and stick!







Speedo is only off 2 m.p.h., ride is smother than my city driving MPSís. The R888rís stick is better in staight line for certain, (I currently put down 751 rwhp) cornering they seem almost equal, very slight tire noise that my headers and borlas drown out anyways. No tire rub on stock height and they just look better. My tuner suggested 24 psi on rears for going in straight line. 32 cold psi for hpde. I will try them next event along with my cup 2ís and see which one works better on the twisties. Currently I only get 2 -two day events on Cup 2ís about 225 minutes track time before cording the fronts outsides. So I will report back after my next hpde track day.

Awesome! Mine should be out of the shop within a week so it's good to know I'm not going to have any issues with mine!

I doubt it, but neither are pss or cup 2ís. At least for me Rain = Z06 stays in garage and take Uber or walk. Not much to channel water away from road and tire, but I have no first hand experience yet.

Wait... you've never driven your corvette in the rain, but you'd pay another person to drive you around in it instead??

Weird, has worked for everyone else. It's an entire album, so I'm not posting the whole thing, but here are a couple.

Do they stick out far enough from the rim to give a little buffer against "curb rash"?

I feel like it. That's something I worry about as well because I park basically against the curb to give as much room on the other side as possible to avoid door dings. I'm already at work, but it's still dark out. When it's light, I'll go out there and get a side profile pic

Guess they don't have that much after all, but it is some protection.
