Question

Why I don't see any love for these tires coming from 5th gen ZL1 owners, the driving performance results from the 6th. Gen ZL1 & 1LE cars were outstanding with these tires, and they are already available for sale, the only difference that I saw is that they come only in 30's instead of 35's. I wonder how 30's would look at our car and which difference in driving or looks will encounter with them?

I'm awaiting the availability of these in our size to give them a try next year.

The load ratings on these tires are not up to the level of the stock ZL1 tires. They are only 95Y 99Y instead of the 100Y 104Y that our cars came with. Probably because of the lighter weight of the 6th gen car.

Because most don't take the time to warm them up. They ( v2) need to be warmed up for several laps. Many drivers hit the gas with them cold and then say they are junk..They are also tricky when the outdoor temps are low, which require more warm up time. V3 has a different tread pattern, and most likely compound, as well as a lower profile. As pointed out as well the load rating is a bit lower. I am on the fence about trying them, but we may have to because the V2 will most likely be discontinued.

I would find it hard to believe they will discontinue the V2's, unless they provide a comparable tire for factory replacements. Maybe they will make a V3 with acceptable load rating and sizes for our 5th gens???

I believe that's what GY will probably do. I believe Michelin does that for the PSS's. I hope its sooner than later.

Yep low stock on the fronts and special order for the rears at the tire rack. My guess is they will phase them out as stock is used up. It is what happens to low volume sellers all the time.

if anyone is interested, I found the new F1 G3 tires in the 2017 ZL1 tire specs. Although I agree with...

....so I'd be cautions of using these specs on our 5th gens.

I would rather wait on the new upcoming Michelin Pilot 4 S which was introduced in the Fall and will be released next month. They're supposed to be better than the current PSS (which is already a very good tire) including wear. I don't see the sizes yet, but I'm sure they will eventually release our sizes.
