Tire reccomendations

Recommended Posts

Guest

I have a 2000 996 Cab with Fikse wheels. I am looking for a new set of rear tires. My spec is 285/30/18 can anyone reccomend tires that will be quiet and give the best ride. I am in Alabama so they will be warm year around.

Only had my car for a few months, I'm on the same size tyres and have just got a new set of P Zero Rosso's. The old rears had 2mm left and were terrible in the wet (always wet in the North West of England) so I was nervous about buying the same type of tyres but the new ones are awesome. Great grip, not too noisy and good in the wet.

I have a 2000 Cab with 18" wheels in the Atlanta area, also mostly warm the year round. I did a lot of research last summer and settled on Goodyear Eagle F1 GS D3 (not N-rated, but that is not an issue to me.

I love the tires. One of my requirements was a relatively quiet ride at highway cruise. I got that, and great dry and wet handling. Solid and stable. I don't track the car, but do drive fairly agressively on occasion.

My research was borne out when the December Car & Driver judged it as the top of the ultra high performance tires. You can probably find that at C&D online.

I've had several Porsches. Had most brands of tires on the vehicles. Michelin Pilots give best ride and best wear over time. If you are looking for a great look and save a little the Bridgestone KDW has a neat tread pattern and is really a good buy but I have only got 6-12k on the rears on 996's.
