Have an 08C2S with Pirelli P-Zero Rosso tires (235/35ZR19 & 305/30ZR19) N-1. 15,000 miles currently with a reasonable amount of tread but have started getting noisy as h___. One thing I like is the handling seems to be pretty good and I really like the sidewall design.

I know that this is a pretty subjective issue but looking for suggestions. Also, car still has warranty so I need to stick with the "N" rating. I think Michelin are nice but overpriced so....

Thanks in advance.

My experience is that the Rossos are pretty bad and really noisy. Surprised that you have 15k on the rears and still going.

See this for previous discussions.


I am now a firm Super Sports believer. Great in the wet, reasonable wear and quiet. And much cheaper than the Rossos.

Hope this helps.....Cheers.

Thanks for the link Uwon. Looks like the Super Sports got nice reviews. Since my car still has warranty, what type of problem will I encounter with Porsche since these tires are not "N" rated. The local independent shop told me N versus non N is all in the sidewall construction.

big fan of michelin. have had pirelli on both my 997 and f-150 as OE. replaced with michelin super sports for 997 and ltx m/s 2 on the truck and could not be happier. yes, a little more expensive. but the quality and durability more than make up for any price difference.

Go cheap...Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta. Dirt cheap and I guarantee you wont be able to notice a performance difference unless maybe you take it to a track. If you want a hard core performance tire, go Toyo, R888....RIP Toyo RA1, one of the best tires ever made. Wish they would bring them back in normal Porsche sizing.
