The best tires for a C5, only Sunday driven on clear dry roads? Looking for least road noise
Q. The best tires for a C5, only Sunday driven on clear dry roads? Looking for least road noise. Am a 66 year old non aggressive driver. What would you recommend? Thanks a lot! JIM
A. Jim most tires designed for high performance cars are not quiet or comfortable. But there are 2 that come close and folks seem to like on their Vettes. First is the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 ZP which is a run flat tire and that’s followed by Michelin Pilot Super Sport which is not run flat.
The non-run flat Super sport is the quieter and more comfortable of the 2 but you would have to buy a tire inflation kit for emergencies. The inflation kit takes up some room but is not overly big and relatively easy to use.
