I wished that goodyear made alittle harder compound stock tire where you could choose to have a longer wearing tire but look the same.

I will soon be installing Nitto NT05's on all 4 corners. I'm going with 315 35 20 in the rear and 275 35 20 for the front. Personally, I can't stand the look of the "stretched" 285 on the rear of my car, and wish they would have installed 305 35 20's in the rear like the ZL1.

I am not sure of any other tires but I would assume all seasons would have a softer sidewall than the Goodyears.

Are there any tires out there that are a good replacement for the stock Goodyears that actually have stiff sidewalls and don't wear out in 10k or less miles?
I just installed the PSS and did not notice any "bouncing" during my first drive. I do think they are a smoother riding tire over rough pavement. Grip seemed very good, dry pavement and about 56 deg. Haven't driven in rain yet so can't comment on wet performance.

Are you talking about the Michelin A/S or the Super Sports here as having a softer sidewall? It seems the Super Sport tires from what I remember handle just as good if not better than the Goodyear tires however soft the sidewall is. I think GM just went with the Goodyears to keep prices down.

Installing larger rear tires on a 1LE than the front will cause a lot of understeer. If you do not track your car you will not really notice it. GM installed the same size tires front and rear to minimize the understeer problem.

I was talking about the Super Sports having a softer sidewall. And I would assume the AS3's would be even softer. I know the super sports handle just as well or better than the goodyears. Handling capabilities, however, were not my main focus. I was just talking about daily driving on the super sports and the slight bounce one might feel with them compared to the stiffer sidewalled goodyears. The bounce is more noticeable with stiffer springs on coilovers. This is because the suspension will not compress as much, and more force will be absorbed by the sidewall flex. Lowering springs and stock setups probably wouldn't feel this "bounce" very much.

I went with 285 front and 295 rear. I plan on using the stock GY for track duty (2 sets of wheels)

285 front and 295 (105Y) rear seem to be the way to go with PSS. I have 275 fronts which have a slightly lower load index. That seems to be the cause of the bouncing issue, but it's only minor. Thinking about putting my pfadt lowering springs back on to make the ride a little smoother for daily driving... That should eliminate any noticeable bouncing. At least that's what I'm hoping for as a bonus from switching back to springs...
