A minue 1 size snow tire would be ideal for the Solstice as 18's are going to be a little big and wide for a snow tire to really be effective. However, it depends on whether an appropriate 17 inch wheel (meaning one with correct offset to fit in the fender) will fit over the brake hardware. We'll have to wait and see just how big the binders are on the final Solstice.palmer said:What about snowtires? I always run my cars year round and have been pleased with my Miata with Blizzaks. I assume that I would be able to go minus 1 sizing and get some sort of snow tire. Does anyone know for sure?
If the Solstice can pull a .90 with RS-A tires I can't wait to see what it can do with a real performance tire. A friend and I both had 95 Z28's his had RS-A's and mine had GS-C's. The difference was night and day the RS-A is a good tire, but I would never classify it a performance tire.solsticeman said:The solstice comes equipped with (if all info is correct) Eagle RS-A P245/45R18 tires, and the max lat is somewhere near 0.90 g according to the car & driver article.
