  1. I've now got the larger Pirelli PZero Corsas fitted - 235/40x18 front on 8inch standard rims & 295/30x18 rear on 10inch standard rims. The tyres are superb ! Grip is unbelievable compared to the previous "standard" Pirelii PZero Rosso's (which seemed good compared to experience of these on my previous BMW M3s). Even with the PSM switched off & trying to provoke them causes no loss of grip (in the dry) - whereas powerslides were easy in 2nd gear with the Rosso's. Very mild understeer of the standard C2 appears further reduced & the old saying "corners like its on rails" definit
  2. Smackboy, thanks for the response, the fronts were more of a concern than the rear due to the steering movement. The rears appear to have lots of clearance around them. Thanks for reminding me that the C4S has the wide body not the "basic" C4. I think the tyres will be on the car next weekend ! Paul
  3. Has anyone got experience of using 295/30x18 rears with 235/40x18 fronts on a 996 C2 Coupe ? I've got a 2004 C2 with the standard 285/30x18 rears & 225/40x18 fronts & want to improve dry grip by fitting Pirelli PZero Corsa's - which I believe are a better compromise than the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tyres for mainly road use - but with occasional track day outings. (Everything I've seen suggests the Michelin Cups are a better track tyre - but need more warming up than the Corsas) My existing Pirelli PZero Rosso's are about worn out - so now's the time to have a look at the optio
  4. I have a 2004 40th Anniversary C2 996 (absolutely great car with the 345 bhp engine & sports suspension !) & being a really mean individual, I bought a Porsche roof rack to carry mountain bikes etc rather than needing a second "practical" car. My problem is that to fit the roof rack mounts, you have to remove the plastic (I think)) blanking screws that fit into the mounting area under the folding flaps in the roof strip. After carefully placing these in various "secure" locations on the number of occasions I've used the roof rack I got complacent & placed them somewhere & n
