In my experience, run flats ride like crap because of the very stiff sidewalls, so you probably wouldn't like the ride, especially with the difference front to rear.

Most 'Vettes come with...

I called the US distributor for Schroth when we bought our ZL1 in 2018 because some folks have used the BMW fitment (which will work with the Camaro seat belt latches).

315/30-20 will fit on the stock ZL1 rear size just fine, but as noted, 19s will give you more tire choices.

The NT01 is a pretty old tire at this point, so it's not going to give the performance...

Our ZL1 gets a measured 4mpg on track when driven reasonably aggressively (HPDE) on track tires. At a race pace, I could see 3mpg pretty easily... which equates to nearly a gallon a lap on longer...

They're better than most of the summer street tires, and will last longer than some of the new 'super 200s', but they're about the oldest R comp design/compound still being sold. No surprise they...

Numerous threads on this, but the RE980AS and Michelin PS4 AS (brand new tire) are the only AS tires available in 305/30-20. Both have a 295/30-20 that works on the front.
