    996 TT tire recs?

    Hi all,

    I have an '01 996 TT and took it for a fun weekend in the Hocking Hills and now the rears are at the wear bars on the inside (guess I wasn't driving hard enough!). Anyway, I have the stock rims and do drive the car in the rain. So I am willing to trade a little bit of pure dry grip for better wet grip and hydroplaning resistance. I want to stick with Porsche approved tires. I have used Bridgestone S-02/03 in the past on other cars and liked them. Has anyone used the S-02 A (N3)? Tirerack had two positive and two very negative reviews on it. What other tires should I consider?

    The fronts (and worn rears) are P-Zero Asym., but the fronts still have a lot of tread left. Is it bad to put other Porsche approved tires such as s-02a's on the rears?

    What about the Yokohama AVS?

    Finally, does anyone have link or list of 996TT Porsche approved tires?

    TIA!!

    PS - I accidentally posted this originally on the 996 non TT forum-sorry.

    There were recommendations in a recent Christophorus. The current issue has winter tires but there were summer tires in a previous issue. Check their archives maybe: Christophorus


    Thanks!

    Thanks for the link!!

    So -- just to make sure I'm reading this right -- there are only two tires approved for a 996TT - the Conti's and the P-Zero Asim.'s?

    Tire Rack's site seems to indicate that S-02a's and the Pilot Sport are also approved and I am trying to verify if they are or not?

    Actually, since that was printed, Porsche added the S-02A and the Pilot Sport Rib to the list of approved tires. I think these two are superior the the P-Zero and certainly superior to the Conti's.
