993 c2S tyres

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm due to change the rear tyres on my 993 c2s. I live in Ireland so it's wet 75% of the time and the roads are very twisty. I've been told by a few people to stick with the pzero rosso's but before I spend €700 I thought I'd ask if there are better tyres available?

Cheers

I've owned a half dozen (all used) 911s. It goes through tires (especially rears) even if you are not a hard driver. So my view is purchase cost effective tires. I have used Kumho and certain other brands when on sale. I try and keep the cost/tire below $150 each. Tread depth is probably the single most important thing for wet adhesion. So the newer the tire, the better off you are.

My most recent 911 - a '95 993 came with practically brand new P zeros and the rears have lasted only about 13,000 miles (and I don't drive hard). That is disappointing for an almost $200 tire.
