You ever thought about running corner carving rubber? I know nitto makes 18" dr's but they are intended for the lightning. I doubt that big side wall would look good on a vette. You might check Hoosier. I know they do sticky 17's and I am pretty sure they have sticky 18's. They are about the stickiest treaded, no dr out there. I think they make 335 18's that are REAL sticky.

I cant hook up anymore either. Are you staying away from run flats? Im waiting to buy tires when I get new wheels, Ive been happy w/ Pirellis.
Yea I'm wanting to stay away from the runflats. I think part of my traction problem is the car being so light.

The sidewall on the 18 inch nitto drag is just to damn big for a vette, but it fits the lightnings great. I'm thinking about the 295/35/18 BFG g force KD's. I think these will hook up fairly well.

I use Toyo Proxes on the truck (295/45/18) and the F1s that came with my 2000 Cobra Rs. I don't like F1s. Check out the Toyos for the treadwear.
