    Tires replacement

    My tires are ready to be replaced was wondering rather the Pzero Rosso have N approval on 996 Turbo? Any other tires except the Pilot sport?

    Also thinking about getting a set of Pzero Corsa for track use. Maybe someone can give me some opinon.

    Thanks

    Re: Tires replacement

    Maybe I'm wrong but as far as I know, neither the P-Zero Rosso nor the Michelin Pilot Sport have official approval from Porsche for the 996 Turbo. Yes, both tires exist with N classification but Porsche doesn't approve them for the 996 Turbo. From my knowledge only the Pirelli P-Zero and the Continental SportContact 2 (with N classification) are approved by Porsche for the 996 Turbo. I heard that Michelin will soon offer a new Pilot Sport for the Turbo which will be approved by Porsche too.
    This doesn't mean you can't use any other "ordinary" non-N classified tire but bare in mind that tires with N classification have a completely different compound mixture and are adapted to the 996 Turbo's rear engine/4WD setup. Even the sidewall structure can be different.
    And they are approved to higher speed levels too.

    The Corsa is a very nice tire for track use and you find it now even in 996 Turbo OEM tire size. My recommendation for track use would be to get a seperate rim set (even aftermarket but with same rim offsets as OEM) and mount the Corsa on these rims. Use the OEM rims/tires only (or mainly) for street use because on the track with changing tire pressures, excessive heat and usage, you can damage your tires.
