    Default Replacement Tires - 2003 Coupe w/Z51 Option

    Have the stock Goodyear Run Flats on my 2003 Coupe.

    My inclination is to replace them with the same tire.............however, would like recommendations based on actual driving experience with alternatives. (Have done the usual research @ Tire Rack, etc.)

    Would appreciate your feedback.

    Also, who would you recommend install them............anything trick to know??

    Thanks.

    Before you make a decision on replacement runflats, be they Goodyear EMTs or other choice, read this story that's in the feature articles section here on the CAC.

    I went from orginal Goodyears to Michelin pilots .Great move on my part ,just wished i'd done it sooner.The two major reasons ,quite and ride.

    I also bought the Michelin's from my local tire dealer for less than Tire Rack .

    Default Michelin pilot PS2 ZP

    I have about 2K miles on the Michelin pilot PS2 ZP's (run flats) stock size C5 17 & 18 local Michilin dealer beat Tire Rack for pricing on four tires by $300

    Same tire is is stock on the ZR1

    Nice ride, quiet and handle very well. GY's were very loud and had a harsh ride Michelin are 100% better
