I'm kind of confused on what kind of a tire you need. Are you looking for high performance? Hard back road driving? Any track time? Do you want the most out of your car? (These all point to one kind of tire)

Or are you looking for a quiet, comfortable, cruise tire that's going to give decent performance?

Not much track time if at all, just something that if I feel like getting on it without scorching them won't make the car go sideways. I guess you could say hard back road driving

Pilot Super Sport, R888, NT05s (Not R's), 555 G2. Maybe more that I'll think of.

That was one of my choices too but they weren't in stock for whatever reason and they couldnt give me a back in stock date.

Just ordered the Continental Extreme Contact Sport for my Zl1 rims. They should arrive tomorrow. Looking forward to the beefy 315 rears since no one seems to carry the 305's in stock and all are on back order. The price tag for the new tires are much more appealing than the rest that are out there with a shorter tread life span.

Yeah. They're almost an inch wider. Let us know about the fit, traction and turning. I haven't found many reviews here on 'em.

Also quite interested to see how they perform for you. I'm pretty locked on the nitto n555 g2s because of all the feedback but the conti's are my second interest

Yes will do. I went by the reviews off TireRack which had a good rating.

I'll post back with my review. Looks like I won't be getting the tires today or tomorrow since UPS is in mess and my tires are sitting at the UPS facility and they will not allow me to come pick it up until they finish sorting through the backlogs. Ugh

NICE! Still waiting on my tires with the mess UPS is in now after they are still recovering from Hurricane Irma down here in Fort Lauderdale. I found out the UPS facility in Jacksonville was affected by flooding.

My tires arrived on Monday. I had them installed yesterday and have to say what a difference it made! I am pleased with them in every aspect. The car feels like it handles and grips the road a lot better.

Before 305's & After 315's...
