2011: A Good Year for the Corvette Z06?

Why's that, you might ask? Well, the Goodyear Tire & Rubber company just announced that its newest ultra-high-performance tire, the Eagle F1 SuperCar G 2, will be standard equipment on the 2011 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Goodyear calls the tire "street-refined, but track-capable," which, come to think of it, seems like an accurate description of the as well.

An asymmetric directional tread design with massive tread blocks on the outboard shoulder help enhance the SuperCar G2's dry cornering grip, while sweeping Aquachannel grooves on the inboard tread enhance wet cornering grip. This tire—with serrated band sidewalls and distinctive lettering helping create an ultra-performance look—has been tested on several of North America's best road courses. Best of all: This ultra-high-grip summer tire will be available this summer, in these run-flat sizes: P275/35ZR18 and P325/30ZR19.
