    GT3-Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires

    997 GT3 has Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires as standard equipment.

    The press information CD states a standing KM time of 21.0 sec for the GT3

    Must be a typo since the Turbo does 21.1 with Tip and 21.5 with manual.

    Re: GT3-Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires

    Yes .....after a period of denying availability of a rear 19"semi-slick for the 997S (fronts have been available for a while), Michelin in Europe have now confirmed that 305/19 is available........I guess they had to with the GT3 on the way. Details :
    305/30 ZR 19 (102Y) 'Pilot Sport Cup N0' Extra Load (Michelin stock code: 084704)

    Re: GT3-Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires

    How safe are these tires going to be for normal road driving, rain etc?

    Re: GT3-Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires

    Not very good..........10,000 km max and scary in rain unless you're Schumacher. Great to use on road before/after track days if you are guaranteed of no rain (Dubai 360 days per year)

    Re: GT3-Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires

    Schumacher said once that when you drive in the rain, the car whispers to you...

    unsafe !!!!!! if theese tires are the same of the M3 csl !
    last year at the Nurburgring I saw a guy llosing his life because he drove fast on track during wet conditions !

    Selling this kind of tires for a "standard car" is creazy !

    here in italy ,if you want to mount Michelin sport cup you must write a letter to take all the responsibility .


    Re: GT3-Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires

    I hope these tires has been modified according to Porsche specifications (Driveable in RAIN).

    Maybe like they did on the Corsa tires for the 996 GT3RS.

    Re: GT3-Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires

    Spindar, these tyres are available in Dubai?

    Re: GT3-Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires

    About our rain quota, i really hope we are done for the year. I took my p-car out to mess about in the wet, and the water was about a foot high in places(ran straight home of course).
    Dubai is no made for rain, a couple of days of it and everything goes to hell. Lucky i was in the Seychelles for the most of it

    I guess they are. There would be no sense if they are not, considering the fact that they made the new GT3 a more user "friendly" car!

    Re: GT3-Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires

    CSL came with cups but most people retrofitted road tyres eg Micheli Pilot Sports 2 !

    Re: GT3-Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires

    Zack - Nabooda has asked Porsche ME to lean on the Michelin agent to get the rears here asap (they're denying availability, which is not the case)

    This super time is achieved thanks to the additional grip given by semi-slick Pilot Sport Cup, isn't it?

    Re: GT3-Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires

    GT3 should come with an option for two sets of wheels (one fitted with PS2 and one with MPSC's).
