Tires

Hey all,
It's been a long time since tires were discussed. Are they going to be summer tires? I read somewhere that they might be putting all season on in cars that goto to winter states, any word on this? Are they still pirelli's?

It's been a long time since they were discussed because we knew about it a long time ago. Not to sound mean, but there's a wiki here that has 99% of the information people are looking for.

Yes, they are summer tires, and yes, they still are Pirelli's.

the stock tires are 275 width tires, pretty wide actually but look thinner due to the 20 inch rims.

All season tires are summer tires.

Don't confuse them with all terrain etc.

It's a coupe so you ship coupe tires... it's not gonna have General Grabber AT2's with metal spikes lol or drag strip slicks.

all season tires are not summer tires...they are made of diffent materials and react totally different when the weather turns cold. Summer tires grip great is the summer (duh), but they harden up when the weather turns cold. Its like riding on slicks...that is why there are all season tires...

Summer tires are summer tires. All season are 3 season, not recommended for extreme cold or places with lots of snow. Winter tires are . . . winter tires.

Thats totally wrong. Summer tires are recomended only when it's not cold and are for wet/dry. They are absolutly shitty on cold roads and snow!

all SS and LT/RS come with summer Pirellis. the LS/LTs come with all-seasons. if you need winter tires, you'll have to buy them separately.

those are stock for the SS and LT/RS rear tires. the fronts are 245s.
the LS/LTs come with 245s all around.
