Any thoughts about what the best tire for the GT would be?
Stock GT wheels

Really liked the BFG Super Sport All Seasons for the Camaro, but those were 275/40/R17 series tires.

There is no best, it's all a matter of opinion. Depends on what your budget is ultimately.

If value and performance is what you seek then look at Cooper Zeon RS3 and Hankook Ventus v12, and of course the Nitto's.

If you want the best and money is no object look at the Michelin Super Sports.

I'm running Falken PT-722, because I needed a high performance all season.
Couldn't be happier, awesome dry, wet and snow traction.

They are rated for 40K miles.
I've only had them for a couple thousand so far.
Highly recommended.
Smooth ride and feel planted at all times, no rolling.

If you think those are awesome wait til you get a new set. They are OEM tires but they are the biggest pieces of **** on the market.

I got the BF Goodrich Comp 2. They got real good reviews on TireRack and the price was right. They are good in the rain.

Lmao, you are THE one to go to for sensitivity training.

Wait a minute... sensitivity training? Why because I'm brutally honest lol.

As to the question asked of me. My suggestions stand but there are others who are far more knowledgeable than me. I go with what I know and those are my recommendations, I've never used Nittos and always heard good things about them. Also always liked the Toyo Proxes 4.

x2

Michelin Super Sports are top of the line.

Hankook V12, Cooper Zeon RS3, and the Nitto Motivo are all good tires that keep price in mind.

I've had:
The original summer Bridgestone Potenza's (RE05A maybe?), great for the street, not quite good enough for the track
Goodyear RSA's- total crap, were sold when still almost new because I couldn't stand them
Dunlop Z1 Star Specs- rough riding on the street, awesome with autocross, lasted 20k miles with about a dozen autocross events
Kumho Ecsta XS- same as Star Specs but cheaper and slightly less ultimate dry grip
Nitto NT05's- rough on the street, awesome when warmed up on the track, lasted 5 track days and 5k miles
Michelin Pilot Super Sports- Amazingly smooth and comfy on the street, even with coilovers, feels like a different car from the Dunlops, Kumhos and Nittos, haven't pushed them hard in the turns yet, too soon to comment on wear. The reviews are they perform great on the track and last longer than most other performance tires. I'll be finding out.

I intend to put BFG KDW 2s on the rear, i had them on my Camaro and loved them, great grip when I needed, but could get loose when I wanted, didn't squeal, and performed just as well wet as dry....no snow here

So I have the tires on my ride from previous owner. He had ,I have falkens up front and yo yo ma ma's on the back ( Yokohama) I think I might go falken again. They seem to do the job and the price is nice . 162.95 is the best price I've seen online so far. When doing my price research I saw a brand called nankang . Never heard of them but they say their as good as the falken brand, any reviews or personal experiences with the nankang brand ? So far best price.there is 140.25.
Never mind on the nankang. Just did a search and am reading bad things ,so never mind. Guess its back to falken and maybe hankook .
Falkens tend to wear kinda fast from what I'm reading. Anyone else having this happen? Maybe that's why I got e decent amount of tread on the yo yo mamas and gotta get tires for the front to replace those balding falkens on my ride . So know leaning towards the hankook as I am noticing the Yokohama tires are more expensive. And at that price range I can go with bf Goodrich or Bridgestone. Oh and sorry o.p. not trying to thread jack , just didn't want to start yet another tire thread Q and A . Mine would be the third thread on tires in the last couple days .
