The 285 Goodyear like on the front of your Z is stretched onto the 11 inch rear wheel of the 1LE. You have a 305 out back.

Thanks. For sure the AS/3 is going to be a more practical tire for the 1LE as a daily driver and for cold weather use. However no way this car will see near the performance levels on all seasons that the Goodyears offer... IMO.

WHY doesn't GM offer three season tires as an option? It wouldn't hurt the awesome reputation that this car has already earned. 2015 maybe?

Is the sidewall firm enough to support the G's the 1LE puts onto the lateral load?

My Audi S4 only had summer tires. It was a sedan. No worries on Chevy's decision. It ain't a winter car.

Thats the whole point of a 1LE it is a 'summer' car meaning track/performance/looks you cannot get the same look/traction/performance out of a All-Season tire (.) period.

This.

Justice Pete has mentioned a couple times that the Goodyears have a much stiffer sidewall. Michelin Super Sports on the other hand do not have these stiff sidewalls and tend to bounce a little during daily driving (quite annoying IMO). The reason they are not as stiff is because Michelin wanted the sidewall to be able to flex under high loads on the track so the majority of the tread would stay flat against the ground for better traction. I am not sure of any other tires but I would assume all seasons would have a softer sidewall than the Goodyears.

Are there any tires out there that are a good replacement for the stock Goodyears that actually have stiff sidewalls and don't wear out in 10k or less miles?

I know, right?! I just don't see any way around not having a second set of tires if this thing is your daily driver and you want to track it and you're not a big baller. I hope to have my new AS/3's installed this week... at 12k I am 1000 miles overdue on these goodyears.

Gotta pay to play.

True. Definitely gotta pay to play. I just want a tire that will last at least 15-20k on the rear and have a stiffer sidewall than all seasons. I want to keep the ride characteristics the same without replacing tires more than once a year also lol. I could deal with loosing some traction capabilities because I don't track my car, but loosing handling capabilities doesn't have to be synonymous with more comfort. Mabye Sukxost can chime in with his experience with Continental DWS's or Justice Pete with his impressive knowledge about everything lol.

I get your point, but I said three season, not all season. Spring, summer, fall.....parked winter. And I said as an option. I'm not asking them to change anything that comes on the 1LE package. Choice means everybody wins.

The Michelin PSS are better than the Goodyear F1's all around, track or street based on my experience...they have great grip wet or dry....

They should send you a sticker or a tee shirt or something.

The good years are less expensive than the Michelin As3 on tire rack.
