    Getting to be time for tires..01TT..HR/Geballa

    I've got 6k on the current set of P-O's tires..stock 18" rims. Lowered Gemabla/ HR suspension. I'm in AZ, USA...very dry here. No need for a wet tire. I'm considering the same tire or Michelin. Comments..I do 6-7 DE's every year.

    Woops...problem with typing Gembala!


    Re: Getting to be time for tires..01TT..HR/Geballa

    Have you ever considered the Pirelli P-Zero Corsa?
    Difficult to get but there is no better tire out there for dry pavement street driving AND track events.
    If you can't get the Corsa, stick with the Pirelli P-Zerobecause there is actually no better tire for the 996 Turbo. Don't forget the N-designation on the P-Zero.

    I have to mention it: the Pirelli P-Zero CORSA could void your warranty.

    Re: Getting to be time for tires..01TT..HR/Geballa

    P Zero Corsa should do it for you. It is supposed to be available in the US late August-September though. Now you get it from Gert at www.carnewal.com . The only downside: pretty expensive because if will be shipped by DHL

    Re: Getting to be time for tires..01TT..HR/Geballa

    RC, is there a website that provides information about the Corsa tire, sizes, outside diameters, etc?


    Available tire sizes / Pirelli CORSA

    I don't know any website which shows the tire sizes / outside diameters or any other information, sorry.
    All I know is that these "common" Porsche sizes are available:

    205/50 ZR17 Y
    215/45 ZR17 Y
    225/45 ZR17 Y
    235/45 ZR17 Y
    255/40 ZR17 Y
    225/40 ZR18 Y
    235/40 ZR18 Y
    255/35 ZR18 Y
    265/35 ZR18 Y
    285/35 ZR18 Y
    285/30 ZR18 Y
    295/30 ZR18 Y
    315/30 ZR18 Y

    Pirelli approves the CORSA up to 290 kph top speed, not more!
    One reason why the CORSA is not streetlegal on the GT3, GT2 and 996 Turbo over here in Germany.

    It seems that Pirelli delivers the CORSA in limited quantities only. Although the CORSA has been improved a lot, it still isn't a tire for everyday driving, especially on wet pavement.

    cjv ... finally found what you're looking for

    At least I hope so, check this link :

    P-Zero Corsa Sizes/Diameters

    Re: Available tire sizes / Pirelli CORSA

    RC, sorry to hear about the 290 kph limitation. What in your opinion would be the best tire for both handling and top speed. Top speed being in the area of just at 210 mph. Alternative would be two sets of tires I guess. I don't intend to use my car in the rain.
