New Tyre Suggestions

Post by bails74 » Sun Oct 15, 2017 1:15 pm

I have stock standard Potenzo RE050A on my new 370z. The back one's need replacing. What are some good all round (wet and dry) tyres to replace them with? Thanks.

Not usually a good move to mix tyre treads, so it you can go a full set all round is will produce the most predicable handling, obviously depending on quality of the tyre.

Personal favourites of mine for the more modern Zeds are: Yokohama Advan Sport V103 or Goodyear F1 or Goodyear F1 GS-D3 (see if you can obtain the German GS-D3's).


There are other options out there, it's a matter of what you're prepared to spend for you and your Zeds safety.

Hi, brought my 370z with new Altenza tyres on it and they handle OK for my Nana like driving but the tyre noise is most annoying on a long run, looked at replacements and are wondering what other members are using that are quiter, yes I know the 370z is noisy but it does spoil the joy of driving it.

Advan Sports were one of the recommended tyres from Nissan, and they're great tyres and not as noisy as most, and hold on really well.

Tyres are super important, but the best thing on that you can. It might save you and your zed.
