August 12, 2010

It's been time for new tires since the introductory test on our 2002 Corvette Z06. It's not that it's dangerous now, but there is a mild, crippling fear of freak rain storms or puddles or really damp squirrels.

In any case, these meats are overcooked, and it's time for some fresh ones.

The C5 Z06 is a sports car and sports car guys like to change things up so there must-- MUST-- be options: Dunlop, Sumitomo, Nitto, Michelin-- anything. Everything!

Well, there aren't. Without going +10mm or with bigger rims, we're staying with stock sizes, there are 5 tires available.

Follow the jump, tell us which one you want to see us test. Which you'd buy with your hard earned money. And we'll buy them. (Probably. Maybe.)

F: 265/40ZR17

R: 295/35ZR18

Tire 1: Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar

Cost: $1,458

Tire 2: Michelin Pilot Sport PS2
