When your Corvette is ready for new tires, if you've been happy with the performance of the factory supplied tires on your Corvette then the selection of tires for you is simple, buy 4 more of the same. However, if you're ready to take your Corvette's road performance to a whole new level, put a pair of these wider, lower profile Michelin® Pilot® Sport PS2 tires on the rear.
The Michelin® Pilot® Sport PS2 is Y-rated for speeds up to 186 MPH. It has a UTQG tread wear rating of 220 compared to the factory tire rating of 300. This rating, generally speaking, means that the Michelin® Pilot® Sport PS2 has a softer rubber tread compound that is "stickier" to provide greater traction. A "stickier" tire not only improves cornering, but braking performance as well! The increased width gets more rubber to the ground while the reduced sidewall height keeps the tread more stable during hard cornering. Balance the reduced overall diameter of these rear tires with a pair of wider, lower profile P265/40R17 Michelin® Pilot® Sport PS2 tires (P/N 50393) for the front and you've got a vastly improved handling machine.
A quieter ride than with the factory tires is possible because the Michelin® Pilot® Sport PS2 has an acoustically tuned, asymmetric tread pattern. The Michelin® Pilot® Sport PS2 gives superior handling in wet or dry conditions with highly specialized dual side-by-side tread compounds. The outer tread is engineered for maximum grip while the inner provides maximum handling in wet conditions. With a new set of Michelin® Pilot® Sport PS2 tires you can expect crisp steering response and amazing cornering ability in wet or dry conditions. Though the Michelin® Pilot® Sport PS2 tires are excellent in wet or dry conditions, they are not intended to be driven on snow or ice.
