  1. 981 Cayman and Boxster Competition
    I have done the oil sump mod on my 2007 Cayman S and I'm now looking to change to R-compound tires for track days. I'm considering the Michelin Cup 2 since I will also be using the car on the street (in dry weather). I have the stock Porsche 18" wheels and currently standard tire dimensions...

    These came new on a Certified Pre-Owned 2016 Cayman purchased from a SF Bay area Porsche dealer. They have approximately 800 miles, mostly highway since new in October 2019. Tire Rack price is $265 each (front) and $297 each (rear) = $1124. I am willing to separate fronts and rears, but buyer...
  3. 718 Chat
    Hey everyone, I'm looking to get more track oriented tires for my stock 20" wheels on a 718 S. Was leaning towards the re71r because it actually comes in 20" but the widths don't match with stock. Do any of you guys use this tire with the stock 20" wheels? If so, what tire size would you...

    Have for sale four Sport Cup 4's I bought new from Tire Rack. Fronts are 18x8 and rears 18x9. They include TMPS sensors, those are over $300 themselves. Currently wearing Dunlop M3 snow tires. Fronts need replaced. Rears could be used another season or two. Ran these on my 981C for three...

  6. 981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Hi Everyone. I put Michelin Pilot Sport 4S' on my Cayman this spring and have loved them for about 12,000 km. I recently took a road trip to PEI in Canada and hit a hard thing on the road which blew out the sidewall on the left rear. It took two days to get a new tire from Montreal but all is...
  7. Porsche Tires & Wheels
    I was hoping for some guidance on my tire wear patterns. I've been using RE-71Rs for 5 track days (spread out over 5 months). Aside from the track, the tires have driven about 3k miles going to and from the track. At the track, I monitor the tire pressure between sessions, shooting to keep...
  8. 981 Cayman and Boxster Competition
    Apologies for starting a new thread instead of posting in the other two tire threads, but I haven't seen any discussion that mentions this size. Found a custom-made set of wheels (9.5" front / 11" rear) that have these tires on a 981 GTS and they don't rub. Almost seems like too much rear tire...
  9. Porsche Tires & Wheels
    A local body shop has this wheel & Conti tire but doesn't know what it belongs to. The tire is a 245/50x18 & there are numbers on the inside of the wheel but I didn't know if they mean anything, so no info. Any help advice is appreciated.
  10. Porsche Tires & Wheels
    When doing a recent search of the Tire Rack website for tires found that Bridgestone has a new extreme performance tire, the Potenza S007A. Since this tire has the correct speed rating and an attractive price I am considering it for replacement of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires I currently...
  11. 987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    I am interested in any experience out there with increasing ride comfort on a 987.1 with stock non-PASM suspension and 19" wheels. I've searched the forums, lots of posts out there, but most posts are either about 981's, handling (not ride comfort), track tires, or are old enough to not include...
