The Ferrari spec pss is 2039 lbs. The factory goodyear is 1764 lbs. If I was only racing my car the goodyears are a great tire. I like to drive sometimes when it rains. The Michelins are a better overall tire in my opinion.
Are the Michelins as good around a dry track as the Goodyears? There may not be an answer to this question yet. I don't think I would pay a lot more for a tire that doesn't perform as well in dry track conditions just to get the other benefits. Would be interesting to do a side by side test of both tires on the ZL1 in different conditions..
