    Mine too, but since its my first i have no base for comparison. Not feeling the grip round corners though, maybe its just the way i drive

    Re: what are the factory fitted tires of 997 or 997s?

    Michelin Pilot Sport 2 XL 57% got these

    Pirelli P-Zero 29% got these

    Continental Sport Contact 2 8 %

    Bridgestone RE050 5%

    From a survey I conducted on Rennlist.

    This is admittedly a newbie question on my part, how is it decided what tires they put on them at the factory? Whatever is available?

    Re: what are the factory fitted tires of 997 or 997s?

    Yes, I believe it is whatever is available

    Re: what are the factory fitted tires of 997 or 997s?

    Historically, Porsche draws from a large pile of tires,--and it's pretty much the luck of the draw,--whatever was on top of the pile when they were mounting your rims. At one brief time in the past Porsche would respond favorably to specific tire requests,--not so again.

    My '02 996 and my '06 997 were both delivered with Pirelli P Zero Rosso. They are an excellent tire.

    Anybody knows if Brigestone RE050 are N-rated?
    I happen to prefer Brigestone over the rest. It's a shame they don't provide the RE070 in europe

    Re: what are the factory fitted tires of 997 or 997s?


    My car that I have not yet taken delivery of (6 days to go) is also fitted with Pirelli P Zero Rosso.

    My May 2005 car has Contis. I have no comparison --- seem OK. I also have Michelin Sport Pilots (1) (non Ns) on alternate wheels ----- which are also great, but more compliant.

    Now, does any one know this: once the N redesign is done on a given brand, how similar are they? i.e. is a Conti N now very similar to a Michelin N? More so than if you had a 'regular' Conti to compare with a regular Michelin, as Tirertack does on Bimmers. One Porsche dealer rep said that once the N was on them, they beacme ALMOST the same tire! I do hope so ---

    My 2005 C2 on 18" wheels came with Bridgestones so I assume they are N rated.
