2 options for tires: RivalS or RE71R's. If you are "hooked" as you say, you want either of those 2 tires. Now, that decision depends on the next: what class?

If you're so competitive, then why not build to a class and see how you stack up?

Stock diameter ratio is 25.6 / 26.7 or a difference of 1.1". You're right about being closer to the stock diameter ratio, but is that really the ULTIMATE factor???

RE71R - 285/30/18 is 24.8 and...

I'm not a C6Z06 expert, but isn't 10" front conservative? I thought you could fit a lot more. Not uncommon to see 18x11 w/ 315's on the front of a C5!! For autoX, you are going to want a lot more...

IIRC, people were mostly mixing the RE71R and RivalS before BGF had a 275 option for the front. All the feedback I've "heard" is the mix of RE71R/RivalS is not ideal.

IMO, stick with the RivalS.

What makes him go to SSP? He can run those wheels in STU and CAM-S, both of which are considerably less prep (well, maybe not CAM-S) that SSP and allow 200tdw tires, as the OP suggested he wanted to...

The Yokohama Advan 052's are not approved by SCCA as they don't meet the minimum tread depth. They only have 6/32's and SCCA requires 7/32 for a 200tdw to be legal. Rumor has it that Yokohama may be...

IIRC the Z06 style were custom made... ForgeStar has 18x12's in the right offsets for great pricing and they are light for a 18x12 option. That's where I would look if you don't want very expensive...

I have Borg's bushings and love them. Mostly autocross, some track and some street use. I can't use monoballs in STU class.

I have full brake ducts and use the 18x10.5 z06 rear wheels for a square setup with no problems at all. I have not run anything wider than a 285 upfront though... the wheel seems to clearance fine. ...

Just curious, why the Falken FK615+'s? There are plenty "faster" tires at that treadwear (200). A 275/285 RE71R or RivalS is faster than a 315 615+ and you won't have to worry about fitment. Us...

Nitto NT01 puts you in no-man's land for AutoX. Its below 200 tdw, so can't run in CAM-S. It's slower that R-comps, so you will be at a huge disadvantage in a class that runs them.

Good recommendations above. If you want to dual purpose the car in AutoX and Track duty, then I would think CAM-S would be the best place to play on 200tw tires for autoX... specifically the Rival S...
