Same here. My PSS and I finally got enough time to go on honey moon on a track.

What was I waiting for?!

I have PSS on my 15 Corvette and the PS2's are superior in terms of tread wear ( 220 vs 300). The PSS have  been replaced by PS4's with same rating.

My Vette PSS will be shot this year and will replace perhaps with Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar's.

Finding needed sizes in performance tires is difficult.

Which model '15 Vette did you go with? And which package,1lt, 2lt, 3lt ? If you don't mind me asking. Maybe pics? I think these are wonderful cars. The '12 L.S.Boss is a WHOLE DIFFERENT BREED !




I'm on my second set of Corsas,same sizes as came stock. They wear super evenly. Seems the weather in the So.West of AZ. Does not allow me to run my race slicks and wheels so much as in So. Cal. Bummer.

Once you drive a Boss with 295 square Hoosiers,,,you will literally be hooked.

Vette  is  2LT Z51. Will need tires end of this season, probably Goodyear F1's. Up one size in width to 295 and 265.

 

I ran Hoosiers on my 70 Corvette for several years and switched to Rival s's last year. Almost as good as Hoosiers and last longer.

Unique,( color combo to me),but beautiful.


Probably a wild ride on a Long track. Does it have the 8 speed auto or magnetic ride?

Comparing between the two cars is the Boss the favorite and each being so different no similarities?

The 2 cars are so different I can't say one is better.

They are both fun to race and handle different.

Am running the 15 Vette Sat & Sun in Mason, Mich at a National Corvette autocross that uses a 1/4 mile paved oval, but, does a figure 8 course.

Anxious to run the Boss with its PS2's.

Finally got to run the new tires today at SCCA Toledo Airport Autocross.

Worked well, but , need to play around with pressures . Did a 90*  spin on one run and very loose on others.

Run with the Vette at Corvette Convention Motorsports Park last week  were excellent.

Believe the 305  rears responsible.

The '12 Boss LS stock rear 9.5 in. wheels will allow too much side wall flex with a 305,been there,done that.

Even the 305 width tire on my 10 in. race wheels didn't work out for me.

I'm happy with 295 square - satisfies my expectations.

A wider tire/ wheel set up in the rear would look more awesome, but my LS , lowered on Eibach Sportline springs, doesn't allow much visibility of the tires -- unless you are on Yer hands and knees. LOL
