Default I go through these more than socks...

I had to sacrifice the fronts for R7's, hence only 2 tires vs. 4. R7's are the road race compound, and A7's (4 rears) are the autocross compound. A7's gain heat WAY faster, thus optimal for autocross. Nobody in the country can source the P265/35ZR19's. If I can find them, I'll buy 2 more sets of those for the front.

I need them for Sept. 6-9th. 5.5 sets of Hoosiers for that car since November of 21.

On a bright note, I have one of the all-time great alien drivers basically committed to co-drive my C8 in the championship. He has an extremely legit shot of winning the whole thing, and in turn winning me tires.

I will be towing 3 sets of wheels/tires, plus these 6 tires to Lincoln. If I can get the other 4, they will be delivered and mounted at the track in Nebraska.

The cost and hassle of keeping up with tires did more to slow down my driving habits than getting old. Nowadays it's a safe bet they won't even make the tires I want, been through that with every vehicle I own.

Craig,
Is this for your C6Z06 or the C8? Just a question for you as I do not know how the C8 works, but what method is used to bypass the tire sensors? I thought they were a major deal for the C8 Input wise for the computer. Sorry if you addressed this in another post.
