    I put on a set of the Pirelli P Zero Nero's about 6 months ago and absolutely love them. Loved the price too. Got 'em at Vulcan Tire online.

    Good questions. Looking for something similar to stock. Don't race the car, got my vette for that.

    Tire Noise

    On the subject of tires.................does anyone have trouble with noisy tires? I am running Yoko's and I get the washing machine "rom-rom-rom" starting at about 30 mph on up to highway speeds and beyond. I have had them checked out and there seems to be no failure and the wear is very even. I cannot feel any driveline vibration in the shifter either so I don't think (hope) its driveline related. Any ideas?

    I had to get a new set of tires last summer, quickly. Based on reviews and price, I went to Tirerack.com got a set of Sumitomo HTR-Z in the stock size (275/40-17) -- for the incredible price of $88 each plus shipping. And they are pretty darn good tires -- very good in the rain, nice and predictable, good dry cornering grip (not as great as the Firehawk SP250s I had before, or the BFG KDW before that -- but better than the stock Goodyear Eagle F1), and so far, decent wear. Based on the reviews, which were generally very positive, I don't expect them to go more than 20K or so, but at the price, who cares??!!!! I recommend them.

    Of course, if you can afford BFG KDs, why not? But Automobile Magazine, in their most recent performance tire test, voted the NEW Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3 as the best all-around performer in their test.

    I had a set of KDWs on my 2000 SS after the OEM goodyear eagle F1s wore (and not soon enough for me!) -- loved 'em too! Have fun, they're good tires.
