Just acquired a beautiful 2002 z06 with a AA installed Vortech supercharger. What an incredible car.
Bought it for 4-6 times a year track days and weekend fun. I am going to go with a square setup 18 x 10.5 with 295.30.18's
Waiting on upgrading the front brakes until I have a little more seat time but for the moment I will be installing some Hawk pads, I will also hold off on a better radiator, an oil cooler and a oil control baffle until I am a little more comfortable with the car.
Any suggestions for some relatively inexpensive track-day tires to get my feet wet?
BTW, I am not a track newbee just a z06 one.

Welcome to the site. Guys in my car club look for scrubs from racing teams and get a huge discount compared to buying new tires. Ask around your local community or go to track days and you might find what you are looking for.

Glad to have you with us martyh. If you end up having to by new tires, the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires work well on the track and are OK for the street except in the rain. Congrats on the Z. Mine was an 02 also.
