"R SPEC " Tyres to suit 997 GT3 RS

Recommended Posts

I am just about to take delivery of my 3rd GT3 which is a 997 RS ,

The cars are used for Tarmac Rallying in Australia.

Problem : currently in Aus there are no "R" spec tyres suitable for use in competition that will fit the rear of the GT3 or RS (305/30ZR 19).

The standard tyres are not suitable for competition as they are hybrid compounds and to "hard" for fast competition use.

Does anybody have details of a competition tyre that will suit and where I can buy them from. They must be "DOT" approved for road use.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hoosier "DOT" Slicks

Read up on what Hoosier has to say about "DOT Slicks."

I'm willing to bet this obvious answer is not what you are looking for.

If however it is, look into the "autocross" version (is it still available?) as it will warm up (and go away) more quickly for off track (street?) use

PS - I belive the 315 is actually the same width (profile is 40! maybe there is something else there you can use) as a 305, but confirm with Hoosier.

Thanks for the heads up on the Hoozier BUT I would prfer the Michelin Sport Cups for the dry and unfortunately the Hoozier wets are only in 18''

I understand however that Pirelli are about to start making the 305x30x19 in the Corsa R . I cannot wait as they are a superior wet tyre.

Thanks again
