PS- you can't use the Trofeos in the winter, the rubber on the sidewalls will crack. Below 40f the rubber gets brittle. It is a true race compound rubber made in the same vats as their (F1) race tires. The tires actually ship with applied stickers on each one with a warning to not try to mount/dismount them below 40f.

A dedicated set of snow tires will be your friend.

Be happy with how much you will save on tires :-)

So did Chevy- the new Z/28 and Corvette have shown GM reinvented themselves in the most amazing way. In today's FU'd economic, governmental and corporate world, the company my tax dollars continue to bail out, gave me something the F back. And for that, I am appreciative.
well put!

Please don't let friends drive a 5Gen Z/28 in the snow!

I waited patiently (and sometimes not so patiently LOL) ever since the fifth gen prototype was introduced, all these years I was looking forward to owning another new Z/28. I think Chevy did an awesome job with how they are building the new Z/28, unfortunately the likely list price will put it out of my reach.

No problem Clyde, patience is a virtue. Give the Z/28 a couple years and see how fast the price drops, in regards to buying used from the original owner who traded it out for another car.

Ditto for the new Stingray. I want one, bad. But I will wait until about 4yrs from now, and get a 2015 or 2016 as we all know, God bless GM, but the cars get better for the model as the years go on, not so much on year 1. But that's just me, I would take a 2014 in 2020 for the right price.

However, if anyone remembers the 1968 Corvette which was supposed to be the 1967 but luckily didn't release, as the 1967 Vette is so awesome.......anyways, the 1969-70 Vettes were 110% better than the 68's. Just sayin...
