New rubber for my Z!

Finaaly got my new Michelin Pilot Sports for the two rear wheels. Here are the wheels with the old Goodrich Comp T/As. The date codes show that they were made in 2001, and they were worn down to the wear indicator bars.



And here are the new ones!



The Sears Auto Center had me a little nervous at first. They were intimidated by the size of them. I was on "pins & needles" until they got them done.

Can't wait 'til spring!

Re: New rubber for my Z!

I just installed a set of Michelin Pilot Sport PS2's on my 03 Z06. What a differance. They ride, feel and handle so much better. Replaced my original Goodyear F1's.
