I’ve got a 2003 Z06, track it 3-4 times per year. Need new tires. Does anyone have experience with Continental Extreme Sport? Thinking of 275/40/17 on front and stock 295/35/18 on rears. Any other thoughts on tires for stock rims? Or, Thought about 18” all around using Yokohama 052 at 265/35/18 front and 295/35/18 rear. Just need to find wheels, any help would be appreciated.

Welcome to the forum Chris. I can’t recommend much current tire info but when I ran my 02Z on the track years ago I was on Michelin’s and they seemed to be a good dual purpose tire.

Hey Chris, I’m new to the forum too. I just put rear tires on my 03Z last week. I replaced the rears with Mickey Thompson ET Streets 345/35R18’s on CCW 12 inch wheels. I run 17” Michelin’s up front.

Do you track the car with that setup?

I do. They’re a drag radial or what a lot of people refer to as a “street slick.” They’re great for the track, but terrible for the street in rain.
