I just replaced my Goodyears with Michelin Pilot Super Sports. I got 315s for the rears. I love them. Night and day difference in cool weather performance.

The stretch doesn't look too bad at all.

I love the way the stock Goodyears look, I don't think I will change when they wear out

If I could afford them... to replace them every 10-12 thousand miles I would do the same.

I had the A/S 3s put on today. My first first impression is that they turn in quicker or respond quicker than the goodyears.

These have a tad over 12 k on them...

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.
