MICHELIN® PILOT® SPORT A/S 3

Just ordered a set from Costco, if you have a membership Michelins are 70.00 off for a set of four.....through tomorrow. I will get them mounted at the dealer rather than Costco.

So I am thinking I will use these A/S 3s for now and save for a track set of goodyears for some hoped for track days next summer.

Were they the W or Y rated ones?

They are indeed the W, but since I don't have any plans to exceed 168 mph I think they will be fine

Spare tire

I know this is a little off the current dialogue,but I have a question.

I want to buy a cheap spare tire for my 1LE. Don't want to buy a whole new black 1Le wheel for 1000 dollars.

What can I get that will fit in the current trunk wheel well. Also heard something about an offset plate.
Can I use the stamped wheel from the 1Lt or similar and will it fit in the trunk well.

cant stand taking a long trip with only that tire repair inflator

I use a stock SS front wheel, 20x8 with a tire that is 28.1 outside diameter, will have to look to see what it is, because you need a spare that is same size as rear tire to not hurt the rear end...I don't know if the 1lt or spare that comes with Non SS/RS cars will work.

Yes, thanks. So if the diameter is right then I can use an SS wheel and tire. I thought that the 1le had an offset that requires an adapter plate.

No, I have a 1LE and have mounted the full size stock SS 20x8 front wheel to both front and back with no issues. The adapter is if you are trying to use the spare that comes with the V6 Camaro on an SS car, the wheel will not clear the Brembo's...

Just to be clear, if you're running the stock 1LE configuration, you need to find a tire that is 27.9" tall to match your rear Goodyear F1 tire if you need to use as a spare on the back. The 28.1 OD I referenced is what my 295/35-20 is measured at...

ANYBODY???

Thanks again. What about a 20 by 9 or 20 by 10 SS wheel and tire if it has the required 28.1 OD?

Also will any of those SS Wheels and tires sit in my spare tire spot in the trunk?

Thanks
Jim

None of them will fit in the spare spot in the trunk...you need to use a 20x8 front wheel to get it to fit in the trunk....not sure a 20x9 will even fit...
