I got 29+K from my original Zeros...there was still a couple thousand worth of tread left, but I am happy they are gone.

You guys that don't like the Pirellis should sell them for pennies to people like me, then continue whining about them on forums. I'll daily them all day every day for under $75 a piece and laugh all the way to the....performance parts sites with my savings. I have performance tires for performance reasons on performance wheels, which, at the rate I saved on street tires I nearly got them for free.

You go to a great deal of effort to collect P-Zeros with 29K miles. You must love to frequently mount tires and drive on dangerous rubber.

I didn't have to work hard at it. I got 9 tires in 3 transactions, all of them less than 2000 miles. $600 total investment

Me too. Ive already got 3 take off sets of old springs and mufflers laying around. And now I find out that old Pirrelli tires
are worth major bucks.

For all seasons, get Continental Xtreme Contacts


For a max performance summer radial get Mickeys Thompson Street Comps


For a budget performance radial get BFG Comp 2s


If you have money coming out of your *** and want max traction get NT05s


If you want to powerslide around corners and spin out on high rev launches like in Super Mario Kart, get Sumis.

Can't go wrong with the nitto nt05 but I would be surprised if you get 10,000 miles on them but they are excellent. That's what I currently run

Well of course the storage does take up space I'd rather have but I can't pass up a killer deal in something we all HAVE to have anyway.

You should try and ride with someone who has a better tire. Those OE tires are super noisy on the highway and really mediocre at everything else.

What about the Michellin Pilot AS 3? I heard they are excellent tires. Is the Continental Extreme Contact comparable to them? The are close in price according the quotes I got.

The Michelins and the Contis are similar in price/performance/quality. Although, in my experience, Michelin is the top of the line tire. Period. If they were close in price I'd be getting the Michelins.

Any pictures? Did the road noise or handling change at all for you?

Road noise is way less than stock and they handle killer.

By the way Scotty, the prices I got were for the 255's. I have a question for you or anyone else. I have the Brembo brake package with the stock tires and wheels. Should I stay with 255's on all four corners or should I go with 275's rear and 255's front or can I go with 275's on all corners? Would they fit the Brembo's? I appreciate any help.

I stayed 255 up front on mine (also a brembo car) and went 285 on my rears with a 10" rear wheel. I would bet the the 275 will fin in the front but it also depends on the wheel offset I would imagine.

I know I can fit a 275 on the back brembo wheels but I was asking if I can fit a 275 on the front brembo wheels, they are all 9inch wide but would they rub something up front? Has anyone run 275's on the stock brembo package wheels, thanks for any information.

It's the wheels that must clear the brembos, if you're using the same wheels, the brakes are not a problem.
As far as the 275/(35)R19. They should be ok with the original wheel/offset. You would only be picking up an addition 1/2" at most, inboard and outboard.
As you probably know, a 9" wheel width is the minimum size of the acceptable size range of 9 to 11.
EDIT: Not suggesting you go with the 275's, as the 255's would be fine as well.
The 275 in rear and 255 up front would be a close match to the 2015 GT perf pack setup except they have 9.5" rear wheels.
