There are many threads on this subject. I was set to go either with the Kumho's or Toyo's but the new Firestone Wide Oval is made in our Z06 sizes and has a 320 AA A rating. I asked my local dealer to match the on line prices and he did. If I'm not mistaken all three tires I mentioned are about the same price through on line dealers. :
I have some Yokohama AVS Sport's and they are amazing! :jammin: Dry the grip is unreal and wet is very good also. The Kumho MX's are great too; :ity: I had a set on my 2002 Z28. Both are great but I believe the MX's are a bit cheaper. IMO I would say go with the AVS Sport's! :thumb:
I've owned the Kumho MX, Kumho Ecsta Supra, BF Comp TA ZR, Goodyear GS, even a set of Eagle Nascars, and lastly... the Supercars. For performance, you can't beat the Supercar. These tires were engineered for the Z06. The MXs wore out rather quickly on my SS but were exceptional for traction. The Ecsta Supras lasted much longer and had decent traction. I think the Comp TA were the stickiest tires I've ever owned but the tread wear was an absolute joke... terrible. If your budget provides, stick with Supercars. If you can afford a little more than the MX, Pilot Sports should be next in line. If not, MXs are still a great all around tire.
The F1s are very good tires on our cars, but they don't do too well in the rain. I've heard that the Michelin PS2s are supposed to be a good all-around tire -- but, they don't come cheap. I don't think there's a tire that costs less than the F1s and can perform as well on a track and can equal the F1's treadwear rating. I'm not sure if it's true, but I've heard from several people that the ecsta's have a weak sidewall. I would consider the ecstas good for the money - but, I don't think they can perform as well.
