I found ....well fell on a great rear tire, and supper cheap.
"capitol sport UHP" for 108 each,
I blew through 2 sets of stockers in 25k miles. not sure how long these will last but for the cost and TRACTION I really do not care. lol
P.S over 600 RWHP and the car hooks much MUCH better than ever before!

If you want something for street and track then look into the Nittos, I have not tried these at the track yet, but for street purposes i couldnt be any happier!

My car currently has 502 rwhp and the Vreds grip through first and second gear with no issues, if you dump the clutch that's a different story

500rwhp is the mark where you lose traction completely in 1st and 2nd on average. I'm running Continental DWS Extreme Contacts with 315's on the rear and I have no traction through 1st and 2nd at 70mph and under at 656rwhp.

Moving to a wider Invo, so I'll see how that compares.
Invo's in 315/35/20's on a 20 x 11.5" rim with 650rwhp grip less than the stock 275/40/20 P-zeros. Save your money and try something else.

I'm telling you guys the 3rd gear spin is GONE! and second is now usable all thanks to a cheap set of tires.
try them for the $216 a pair. its well worth it. after the first few burn outs they settled in and hook like a champ. soft compound lots of contact to the road.

Also: Compound > Width


You are better off with a stickier compound tire than a wider tire of lesser compound.

OP, I just went through this too. I do not daily drive the car, it's just driven on weekends and parked in the winter. When I got the car back with the whipple, it felt like I was driving on ice on the stock tires. From a stop it was instant smoke fest. At interstate speed, it was instant smoke fest.

I just switched to some 315 rear NT05 (non drag radials) about 2 weeks ago. From a stop, I have substatially increased traction. From a roll, I get no chirp, no smoke. I just go.

I had put the tires on but not "tested" the traction until I got my new axles installed. The morning I was driving to get the axles put in it was raining quite a bit so I had to drive the car in the rain. I can tell you the NT05's non drag radials I have SUCK in the rain. Over around 45 mph it felt like the car was floating. Scary feeling. Reading around online a bit it seems this is common until they wear a bit though. Most folks seem to love them in the rain.

I don't plan to drive the car in the rain but you never know when you'll get caught in a thunderstorm. Right now, I'd tell you if the car is your daily driver to get something other than these tires. I have tons of traction and am happy with how they hook when dry, but if they don't get better in the rain I'm going to replace them with something else.

I use the Nitto 555r drag radial as my dd tire. They have lasted 10k miles and still have tread. They are ok in the rain if you stay out of it, and I even got caught in a snow storm and they were ok.

As for long trips, I used them to drive to Camaro Fest 2 and 3. There are definately better tires for the drag strip, but for everyday driving they are awesome. As soon as I hit 650 rwhp they started to spin a little but anything under that and they hook everytime.

Would the stock ZL1 tires work with the SS, or are the widths different? Not sure what rwhp the typical Z makes, but I'm assuming it's somewhere around 500.
