Per their web site they do. Not ZP but correct size (18/19)

Re: Z06 track day car: how reliable?

My wheels are stock. I don't run ZP (run flat). Just regular MPSS, and I keep a tire puncture repair kit with me at all times, and usually have compressed air (if heading to the track) or a small compressor with me, or a can (or two) of "fix-a-flat".

I have 18 on front and 19 on rear. Some people go with 18 all around (cheaper) but I like it stock.

Re: Michelin Pilot Super Sports
For a C6 Z06... Michelin definitely now makes factory correct sizes. I had to wait on them in 2012, but had them installed and then drove on them at Daytona in December.

These tires were a big improvement in both ride and handling over the original Goodyears. I'd buy them again in a minute.

Our local Discount Tire Store did the installation for me. They did a nice job, probably helped by the fact the manager there also drives a Z06.

Track Car - Incredibly good on the track and my 2008 has been mechanically perfect. Go and enjoy.
