  1. Well, the rears on my 1st set of P Zero Rosso tires is down to 3/32 and it is time to start looking for new ones. I managed 11,000 miles. The car is an 06 C4S and the only N rated tires for it are Michelin SP2s, the P Zeros, and a model of Bridgestones all with bad tread wear ratings. The Rossos handle well but I did't realized how bad they rode until I put Sottozero series 2s on for the Winter. The car feels great on those snow tires! I'm sure they do not handle as well at the limits but, who drives at the limits in a snow storm? My car is a daily driver and I might get to the track once a de
  2. If my interwebbing is at all correct, there seems to be some differences between the 955/7 and the 958 wheels. I know they are interchangeable between vehicles, but I suspect there's some difference between the backspacing and offsets. I'm trying to get some some proper and semi-aggressive AT tires fitting to my CD. While I know the OEM 255/55-18 tires will fit with no issues, I'm wondering if I can't get a slightly taller and/or wider tire on my rig. Having access to OEM wheel specs should help me in that quest. Can you point me to a resource for OEM wheels specs? Spe
  3. 2006 Carrera S I need new rear tires, but not new front ones. My Porsche dealer service manager says I can't mix tire makes/brands between front and back. Currently I have Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position A/S on both (different sizes front/back). I'd like to replace the rear tires with Continental ExtremeContact DWS in order to save about USD $100. The car is not raced. Would I be taking any serious risk with my plan?
  4. I never realized that i needed one, bought car in auction and i guess it doesn't have one. How can I get one, need new tires and i do not have the unlocking thing!
  5. I need to replace the rear tires on my 2007 C4s and it turns out the Michelin Pilot Super Sports are completely unavailable, with no ETA. Even if one makes allowance for the odd size and likely small demand, that is still pretty shocking. What alternative have you tried and what do you recommend? Car is a daily driver, street driven, I value quiet running (not that our cars are *that* quite, but would rather not add running noise).
  6. I did my first track day in my 997.2 S, and am hooked. Next up is to avoid grinding down my street rubber, and move to DOT approved dry tires and wheels. I currently have 19" wheels on the car, but am thinking of going to "-1" or 18" wheels as there seem to be more tire options, and they are a bit less expensive. I've got the following questions: 1. What wheel widths should I be looking for? 2. What is the corresponding tire sizes? 3. What offset is 'right' and if right is different from 'acceptable' what's the range? 4. Any tire recommendations (folks at the track were raving about
  7. I posted this on http://www.6speedonline.com and haven't gotten any response. Im trying to decide on tires for my new wheel setup. I found this great wheel and tire calculator but Im having trouble finding some of the specifications. For instance to figure out if the tires will interfere with the suspension its asking for "suspension clearance". Its also asking for fender clearance and wheel well clearance? Dose anyone know this information? Im getting 20" x 9.5" in the front and 20" x 10.5" in the back. Every time I do a search for sizes the closest I come it people running 20" x 9" in
  8. Has anyone changed their rear tires from Michelin PS2 285/30-18 to Super Sports 285/35-18? The SS's are less expensive and better regarded than the PS2s, but they don't come in a 285/30-18 size. I did the math (and browsed previous postings on the subject), and the 35s are about .5" taller in radius. I prefer not to go narrower to 265. Does it make that much of a difference in handling? What about acceleration? My speedometer is currently 10% fast, so this may bring it down, though it's the least of my concerns in all honesty. Thanks.
  9. Hi everyone. I just called my local tire shop to purchase some rears (285/30/R18 Pirelli P Zero Rosso N4 Porsche Spec) for my 996 and they told me that they are going to be discontinuing this tire next year. Has anyone else heard the same? Just for thoughts, what will you ride for a daily driver tire (wet/dry performance?)
  10. A new owner of 02 996tt with a question about the tires and acceptable rolling diameter differences between the front and rears. I apologize for bringing this question again, did an extensive search here and on rennlist and I am finding a bit of a conflicting information. So far, looks I have come to conclusion that the front to rear tire diameter difference within 2% is predominantly acceptable by forum users that appear to be knowledgeable and factual. Some of them are actually stating to stay within 1% max. But, then I ran into a replay to similar post from a very reputable member who
  11. I put the Ventus V-12s on the Turbo Cab and was looking at doing the same for the GT3 when the time comes (shod with B'stones) until I heard the too-good-to-be-true spiel on the Pilot Super Sport. Once it was finally available, I saw happily that the 235-40-18 size was available for the fronts but SHOCKED to find out that the 295-30-18 was not only unavailable, but that Michelin has NO INTENTION of making that size. Here is their initial reply and my reply to them which was unreturned... (insert favorite derogatory French comment here...) Owen, we appreciate your request for Michelin Pilot
  12. Hi All, I've got a 2003 Cayenne S which I've owned since new. I just recently had a blowout (first flat tire ever with the car) and now need a new set of summer tires. Since the flat, I'm more aware of the existence of run flat tires, since this car does not carry a spare. However I have no experience with them. Specifically, my biggest worry is to have a flat and not be able to move to a safe place on the road to repair it without damaging the wheel. With the blowout I was lucky to get over quickly and safely, and my tires had a very good sidewall that protected the wheel. I swap
  13. I have a 2003 911 cabrio (no PSM) with the Carrera 18" wheels and need a new set of tires. I have decided on the Michelin Pilot Super Sports based on reviews and price. Unfortunately, they do not make stock sized rear tires (285/30 ZR18). My choices for rear tires are: 285/35-18 - (taller) or 265/35-18 - (narrower) My choices for front tires are: 225/40-18 - Original size 235/40-18 - Seen others recommend... not sure why 2 questions: 1) Which rear tire size would you recommend? 2) Why should I change the size of the front tires from the original size? Thanks for you input.
  14. I was wondering whether anyone is using 225/40R18 on the fronts with 285/35R18 (stock is 30) on the rears on a 2002 996 C2? Will this negatively impact the ABS & PSM? Details: I have a 2002 996 C2 with 18" rims. Stock rear sizes are 285/30R18 except only 285/35R18 are available for the Michelin Pilot Super Sports. I have done the math, they are about 1/2" taller in radius, and 81.223 vs 77.698" in circumference 3 -4 % error on the odometer, but my odometer is 10% fast anyway, so I dont care. I have looked at the forums and have not found a definitive answer. The tire place does not wan
  15. looking to replace my Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tires on my Boxster. Any good suggestions? I did get 30K on my Bridgestone Potenza tires. This is my daily driver. 235/35R19 and 265 in the rear. Looking at keeping around $200-250/ tire. Thanks!
  16. 2002 C4S Track season is pretty much over here but thinking ahead to the Spring... does anyone here who tracks their car have any recommendations for a set of tires for the track that are still suitable for daily driving in the street (ie. in the rain, etc... no slicks). I wanted a tire that has both good track performance and also won't wear out in 2 weekends at the track. There are a lot of rankings/feedback at Tire Rack and Discount Tire but I thought I would see if anyone here had anything in specific on their 911 that they liked before I make the leap and purchase. Thanks.
  17. Time to replace my OEM summer tires (2007 C4S, got 32,300 miles out of them)--any recs for what to replace with? I'm trying to choose between Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 or Super Sport. The Super Sports have better ratings on tirerack but the PS2s are OEM. The Super sports are about $500 less than the PS2s for all four tires. They are both Y rated with similar load capacity. Anyone try the super sports? I've never been to the track but wouldn't rule this out in the future
  18. I must replace the rear tires on my 2001 TT coupe. Only PS2s are now available, while I still have half tread on the old spec Pilot Sports on the front. I'm sure both Porsche and Michelin would recommend replacing all four. Any thoughts?
  19. Hi Everyone, Today I took my car to my mechanic to take a look at the vibration on my steering. It seems I need a new set of tires. But what I have noticed was my rear wheels are hard to turn than front tires. ALso I have noticed something else, after a ride for 30-45 min when I park the car, I could feel more heat coming from rear wheels comared to front. When I touched the rotors they are hot compared to the front rotors.(FYI I replaced rear brakes and rotors few months before and my front are really old). I know that the car has a mid engine but just want to make sure if somethi
