    OEM tire brand on 997.2

    What tire brand is PAG fitting on launch 997.2?

    Re: OEM tire brand on 997.2

    Most 997.2CS in EU were equiped with Bridgestone RE050 N1.

    Re: OEM tire brand on 997.2

    Mine has Michelin Sports

    Re: OEM tire brand on 997.2

    I got Michelin Pilot Sports! - Yes!!!! May be to do with the wheel, I (and I think Clewsey) have the carrera sport wheels at 305 wide on the rear - think the RE050 tend to be on the 295 wheels - although they too are an excellent tyre.

    FWIW, 295 and 305 (millimeters) refer to the nominal widths of the tires. Wheel rim widths are still generally quoted in inches - some old traditions just won't die out.
    I don't have a 997.2 brochure, so I don't know if those two different rear tire widths are supplied on the same wheel width or not?

    Re: OEM tire brand on 997.2

    The Carrera Sport rims are half an inch wider than the remaining ones bot at front and rear, hence delivered with 305 mm tires. The remaining ones, on the 2WD, are 295s.

    Front tires are entirely 235s, so the above mentioned rim stretches the tire a bit more. This might result in better feedback.

    Thanks. I'll sleep better now, knowing that.

    Thanks for the kind offer - didn't see it last night - but after what the bears on the stock markets are doing to me right now, I don't think I could have listened to that story about Goldilocks.

    Re: OEM tire brand on 997.2

    So we are still not sure what ends up on US bound cars, I guess. Well, I'll know in a month or two; not that I can change the tire they use. Tomorrow is my 997.2's birthday.
