    GT3 Tires...

    I need to replace my tires on my 2007 GT3 and wanted some advice.  I track the car a couple times a year and mostly drive it as a daily driver 9 months of the year.  I've heard that there are replacement Michelins that wear longer but my Porsche dealer tells me that the only one is the Michelin Pilot Sport II.  Any other ideas you all have found?

    Thanks...

            I drive the Pirelli PZero Corsa on my GT2. These are quite good tires. Fast on the track, not to difficult in wet conditions. Rear tires last for about 10.000km (9500km road/AB, ca. 500km track) Smiley


    Re: GT3 Tires...

    If track performance is a priority stick with Michelin Pilot sport cups or Pirrelli PZero Corsas mentioned above. Another worthwhile tyre that alot of guys on the track use is the Toyo R-888... Your car most likely had the Michelin Pilot Sport Cups fitted as standard...

    The Michelin Pilot Sport II is probably the best compromise for road/track performance with probably twice the life of the 3 mentioned above. Commonly also used as a wet whether tyre on the track... Costs about the same but you get twice the mileage, safer on the roads in wet weather and equally capable in the dry. Only compromise is a little dry weather grip on the track but as you indicated, you use the car only a couple times a year on the track.

    If its mainly a daily drive and you don't plan on too much track work, you can try other N-spec Porsche approved tyres. One that springs to mind is the Bridgestone RE050A...Good all round traction and better mileage than tyres mentioned above but compound is harder and less grip overall... Far more cost effective, probably half the cost of the Michelins and Pirellis mentioned above.

    Thanks everybody.  I'll go with the Michelin Pilot Sport II.

    Re: GT3 Tires...

    i am using the P Zero corsa and they are amazing alround tires. on track and on wet roads. they are also used on wet tracks quite often. For even better track performance there is also a P zero corsa with even more race track oriented thread.. i am going for that one after this.
