Well, i suspect you can buy a set of G3s for the price of 3 4S? Plus they'd be a better choice for track duty anyway.
If that's the way you're going with your car now. I tell ya, they are impressive!

Not at all weird. Z/28 ran 305 square on 11F and 11.5R out of a factory.

Both Provoste and i (and others i believe) have run 295 RE71R on stock rims. All it means is that the rear tire gets...

You could also run 295 square in RE71R, but not much to gain over G3 stockers imo especially for the price difference. The latter are a no brainer for stock rims imo. They seem to be a bit...

Hey Cem, what ET are those rims and do you expect to just do the grinding mod or also use a spacer? Or will they be a bolt on?
I suppose the gearing will be quite a bit shorter with these? Any...

+1 for G3s both performance and price wise. I am one that would argue they are closer to 95% if not even on par with Cup2s having tried a set. Either way, not worth the steep price. PS i do love...

But to be technically correct: rubber is tread. Groves are pattern. Per Pirelli, slicks are "tires with smooth tread".
In other words, no pattern such as groves of any kind.

No disrespect, but your second paragraph makes zero sense, as stiffer springs are neither required for running softer rubber, nor should they be used as a first choice for eliminating body roll.
