Camaro and Corvette are both legendary names when it comes to performance sports cars. These two iconic Chevrolet vehicles are known throughout the world as the best in style, comfort, and driveability.
While the engine may be the first thing one thinks of when these cars come to mind, your tires are your vehicle’s only point of contact with the road, which makes them a very important component of the overall performance equation.
Read on to learn about the tires you should seek out for your Chevy sports car.
Chevy Teams Up with Goodyear for Camaro Tires
When the Camaro was redesigned for the 2016 model year, the Chevrolet development team worked closely with Goodyear to design the perfect tires that would develop the best performance. In the end, the two companies engineered three unique tires for the Camaro.
The LT trim is equipped with 18-inch Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season tires, whose innovative tread compound gives your Camaro a strong grip in any driving condition. Upgrading to the optional 20-inch wheels gives you Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season RunOnFlat® tires. “Run flat” tires allow you to keep driving for a short distance (up to 50 miles) until you are able to reach a safe place to change it.
The Camaro SS is outfitted with the ultra-high performance F1 Asymmetric 3 RunOnFlat® tires, which offer the best possible handling and control in all weather conditions.
Corvette Owners Trust Michelin Tires
These tires are the product of years of testing in endurance racing, having powered 13 consecutive victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the legendary annual endurance race held year since 1923 in France. These run flat tires are manufactured with a unique bi-compound that delivers excellent wet and dry braking.
