I also have a Porsche 911S, How are those new tires holding up, i am curently looking for a set and I am beginning to conclude I might be better off spending more for a good set of Michelins and Pirellis. I currently have 18600 miles on the car and the tread is good for another 3000 miles.
How is your 911 holding up assuming you still have it. I see you last post was 2008,
#39 of 49 Tire recommendations 1986 911 Targa
Jun 02, 2010 (5:04 pm)
I'm a newbie to this forum. I have a 1986 911 Targa that need tires. Tire Rack was suggested as a source. Seems their highest rated tire (I only do summer driving, no racing) is the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11 (Extreme Performance Summer). The tread design is "different" and i was wondering if anyone has had any experiences with this tire. All comments and suggestions are welcome.

I have Continental Contact Sport 2 on my '04 911 Cab. Noise level is fine. Only disappointment is the wear. Had to replace the rear tires at 10,000 miles. Fronts are fine, should easily last another 10,000 until it is time to replace the rear tires again. I do not drive the car all that hard. Was hoping to get at least 15,000out of the rears. Not to be the case.
as an aside,, I just put a set of Continental DWS (dry, wet, snow) tires on my wife's Lincoln LS. They have about 3,000 miles on them. So far, very impressed.

I HAD SAME EXPERIENCE WITH "RUN FLAT" TIRE. HAD IT RERAIRED AT A LOCAL TIRE SHOP BUT AFTER ABOUT 2 MONTHS THE REPAIR FAILED. IT APPEARS THAT THE TIRE IS SI THICK THAT IT WON'T HOLD PATCH WELL.
#42 of 49 Redestein Sessanta Tires
Oct 06, 2010 (6:33 pm)
I've a 2001 C2 with a Turbo configuration (295 30 18) on the rear, would like to think out of the box and try Redestein Sessanta but they do not make that size, they make 295 35 18. Does any one know if I can change to that size on the rear?
There are all type of good comments and reviews about those tires

Yes, using non-OE tires can void those portions of the warranty that are related to tires - suspension, ride, handling issues and the like.
#45 of 49 Switching wheels
Feb 08, 2011 (12:30 pm)
I'm looking at a preowned 2007 base 911 coupe, 11000 miles, which has 19" wheels but no PASM.
About how much would it cost to switch out the 19" wheels for 18" wheels?

What type of 19" wheels are on the 07?
Just bought a 09 with factory 18" and looking for a set of 19"
#47 of 49 Bought a 2007 CPO 911

It's okay. I bought a CPO 2007 911 with 16,000 miles. It has 19" wheels/Pirelli Zeros. I find the ride perfectly okay. Don't believe everything you read. You don't need PASM with 19" wheels.
