    GT-3 Tires

    Does anyone have an idea as to what type of tires will be supplied with the GT-3? Michelin Sport Cups?

    Re: GT-3 Tires

    From the Porsche press information:

    "One of the most important objectives of Porsche's motorsport development engineers in creating the new model was to ensure maximum traction under all conditions - which made it essential to give the tyres particular consideration. In close cooperation with one of the world's leading tyre manufacturers in terms of tyre technology, they thus created new tyres especially for the new 911 GT3 offering not only superior everyday driving qualities, but also exceptional dynamic reserves with even more precise driving and steering behaviour as well as an extremely high standard of lateralacceleration.

    The relatively soft rubber compound of the tyres serves to provide optimum grip even under high temperatures. Until further notice, the 911 GT3 will come exclusively with these tyres for road use. Winter tyres and special snow chains are however available as an option, as with the 911 Turbo."

    The manufacturer they refer to is Michelin. From various pictures it appears the tires will be a special version of the Pilot Sport.
