I bought a used 2015 C7 Z06 3LZ with the 7 speed manual. I've been trying to find performance numbers for the Z06 with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, but so far all of the early reviews I've found were done with the Z07 package and the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. Reported times in those reviews were 0 to 60 mph times with A8 around 2.9 to 3.0 seconds, with M7 a bit slower at 3.1 to 3.3 seconds, depending on who did the review. I'm wondering what the times would be for M7 with Michelin Super Sport tires.

I've read that the Sport Cup 2's stick well when warm, but not that good of a choice for street only use (no track time).

I would recommend looking into Toyo R888R 345/30/19 with Z06 reproduction 19x12 rims. The Toyo cost less, have better straight line grip, wear better, and heat up quicker than SC2. You will get best 0-60 times more consistently without doing burnouts.

I am planning to run this set up on my Z06 starting 2019 April.
