    Tires for GT3

    I will put Pirellis Rosso on my GT3. I read something about putting a Pirelli P Zero Rosso Asimetrico on the rear and the P Zero Direzionale on the front?? And what is N3 ??
    Simply, what tires I should order?

    If you want an official recommendation, I can provide that tomorrow. Right now I'm at my office and I don't have the data with me.
    If you're using your GT3 mainly on the street, you should stick to Porsche recommendations.

    Re: Tires for GT3

    I know that, but the recomendation are from 1999. and now is 2oo4. , maybe some better tires are on the market

    You get the current recommendations, just give me a day or two.

    Re: Tires for GT3

    ok, thanks

    Re: Tires for GT3

    Aldo,

    If you are going to track your car quite often I'd recommend the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup. If you are using your car mainly on public roads your might want to try Michelin Pilot Sport or the modified Pirelli Corsa (the one that is supplied with GT3RS).

    Cheers
    Thomas

    Re: Tires for GT3

    I think the GT3 comes stock now with the new Michelin Pilot Sport PS2's, like the GT2.

    Re: Tires for GT3

    I do not go to track but I drive on the roads very fast (the police in my coutnry is very, very good for now)
    I would like to try a Corsas. Is it good for the street, and what model sould I order?

    What country is that Aldo?
    Are immigration requirements very strict?

    The N-number represents a special version of a tire, generally developed in cooperation between the tire and car manufacturers concerned for a specific car model. Using a tire with the wrong N-number would usually mean the tire is not optimised for your car, and its characteristics will probably be sub-optimal.

    Michelin and Pirelli have both introduced new generations of the tires fitted as original equipment on the "old" GT3. You should check with Porsche if the same N-number applies to the new-generation tires as to the old before you spend your money.

    The Tire that comes with the GT3 RS is the Pirelli P Zero Corsa N6. This is an R-Tire with improved capabilities for wet conditions.

    btw: 'good police' ... sounds like I have to visit your country

    N6? The Pirelli PZero Corsa System tires installed on the GT3RS are N0.

    HA!... During one of my trips to Zagreb, I got 'lasered' a first time in the morning (120 km/h instead of 60, country roads), and a second time in the evening (125 instead of 60, at the end of a highway). The whole thing didn't cost much, but the cops seem to be quite active there too!

    Oh, and a few hours later, their Italian colleagues stopped and fined us because we were going 'too fast'. Whatever that means... Chatting with cops 3 times on the same day is more than enough...

    PS: Aldo, you've got a PM.

    I'm currently not at the same place as my car is. But I just checked the registration document. It says Corsa N6.

    Re: Tires for GT3

    Hi Pierre,

    How are you!!! can't belive how many miles you have on your TT now, i'm expecting you to do paris-Dakar next.

    for street use where it rains [it does rain quite in Croatia i believe] i'd go with the new PS2 or the old PS [pilot sport] from michelin. i certainly would not use a PS Cup, as they have little rain capability

    Re: Tires for GT3

    In Croatia we can make deal with policeman with 100-200 kn (13-26 eur), I know it is not correct but somethimes I can not help myself )
    I use my GT3 since last septembar when I come from PSI in Belgium only for 1600 km so raining is not my problem.
    So for GT3 mk 1 I have to order Pirelli PZero Corsa 225/40 zr 18 and 285/30 zr 18 (or 35) and with N (?)?

    Now approaching 156'000 km (96'950 miles)... Had a few issues lately, but after some complaining at Porsche, things are back to normal, and my babe's running strong again.

    Paris-Dakar?... The distance would be no problem, but can the H&R suspension be raised enough?...

    Anyway, I don't want to hijack this thread. Topic closed!
