Pontiac GTO Tires and Wheels
My only complaint with the GTO is the rough ride quality. I know it's a "sports" car, but I miss having a nice smooth ride. Thought about getting alternate tires to see if this would help, but hate to invest the extra dollars not knowing it this would help. Any ideas or has anyone else improved the ride by trying different tires? If so would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions on brands, etc.
This discussion has been closed.
The two front tires wore out this summer, alignment issue, and I purchased two cheap tires not even the correct speed rating and they also are much better performers than the OEM tires. I will replace the tires with the winter tires in about two weeks. Next Spring I will not be cheap but buy four new summer tires, definitely not the OEM Goodrich tires. Hope this helps.
How long have you had your GTO?
Any chance it still has 55lbs of air in the tires?
I had a different reaction than you.
The GTO rides great compared to all the Camaros I have had.
I have switched the 17s for 18s and it still rides good IMHO.
Also the stock 17" tires are bad. Poor traction in the rain and under power.
Thanks for your thoughts.
If you like the 18" wheels I would consider buying another (cheaper) set for winter.
Put the same type/size of tire on all four wheels. Do not mix and match. It will cause unsettling handing.
The 18's are much lower profile. I don't know how well the snow versions will perform. The 17 in wheel/tire combo w/Blizzaks do pretty good for me with a bit more sidewall to absorb the various highway junk of winter.
Blizzaks eh? Never heard of them.
How do you like your car? Any issues, mechanical, fit & finish?
Chat soon, thanks again
