Any other tires for the ZL1?

I hate these goodyears, they suck and have crappy traction, how on earth they classify these as "supercar" tires I'll never know. Any other manufacturer out there that makes an actual tire that will grip?

Look at the Michelin super sports, PS2, or nitto NT05's.

I have not had the supersport yet. the other two work well. All will have less road noise. I don't have any coments on the life of these yet but got 10k plus out of the latter two listed.

From my experience, the factory tires have a lot of grip, but they have to be warmed up first. They are slick when cold, but they get more grip after you drive a bit.
