I wouldn't speculate about GM's reasoning. There are too many unknown factors there to make assumptions as to reasoning, chief among them being money. The Z28 will have Pirellis. The ZL1 has the Goodyears. The Corvette has the Michelins.

Either they're all good only in one specific application - which is highly unlikely - or there are other factors at work.

I created this thread because I thought the rim guard was a bit of kitsch when I got the car. Found out, to my pleasant surprise, that it actually works. Was happy. Made post because I figured there were others out there who also thought it was a gimmick.

It's turned into tire war, and that's like bench racing. It means nothing. There are simply too many variables. One tire might own a certain track on a certain day on a certain car under certain conditions. Preferences vary widely.

Now, with that said, everyone please continue going off topic as it is, for once, interesting.
