Replaced CUP2 Tires, don't make the same mistake I did

Folks, I just bought a Z06 with Z07 package. I replaced the Sport Cup 2 slicks with Continental ExtremeContact DW (Front: 285/30ZR19 & Rear:335/25ZR20). When I brought the car home and visually compared the Conti to the slicks, they seemed much narrower.

Looking at Tire Rack website I found out the rear tires Tread Width on the Cup2 is 13.1" and only 11.8" on the Conti. I always thought all 335 tires are the same width no mater who makes them, not true.

Discount Tire agreed to replace them for Michelin PSS which has a 13" Tread Width,looks much better.

I'm surprised that Discount offered to take them back. That is pretty good customer service.
