New Goodyear Tires for 2011 Z06

2011 Corvette Z06 TiresDetails are finally surfacing about the 2011 Corvette Z06.  While not the most exciting news or details, the tires are important and the first major announcement we have.

“Street-refined, but track-capable.” That’s exactly what Goodyear had in mind when factory fitting their latest Ultra-High Performance Eagle F1 Supercar G:2 tires for the 2011 Corvette Z06.

Bob Toth, Goodyear’s director of new products, believes the multiple facets of the tire are important when fitting for the Corvette. The directional tread design helps enhance the dry cornering grip while even the tire’s style and lettering is important in giving the overall high performance appearance.

"The new Eagle F1 SuperCar G:2 is positioned as a race-inspired, ultra-high performance dry traction tire for select supercars. With a left-side, right-side specific tread design, it offers superb dry traction and precise handling, complementing both the performance and appearance of sports cars," Toth said.

Now after multiple road course tests throughout North America, the tires will be available this summer in two run-flat sizes: P275/35ZR18 and P325/30ZR19.
