Default wheels and cup tires

How much is it for the appropriate wheels and cup tires? My 800HP Katech beast needs some grip.

Cup wheels go for about $2K. Tires are another $2K. You're not alone Jim; search is your friend

yup, about 4700 bucks....if you are going to track it I'd suggest CCW 18" so that you have a better choice on tires than just 2...cost about the same...cup tires will last you 7000 miles at that...tough world, you should just not make that kind of power lol j/k

I'd say you need more than cup tires for those ponies..like a street rated slick

Do you recommend anyone specifically for reps? I've heard there are some bad version zr1 reps floating around.

I have the West Coast Corvettes 19/20 ZR1 repo's for autocrossing / odd road racing and some Hoosier A's - have rear 19" Z06 for the back

They have stood up great.... I am in Canada and with winter frost and warming our roads can be bad ( Potholes ).... no bent rims

I also had a set of chrome repo's on my 06 Z06 and no issues.

I think West Coast Corvettes handles Nitto's.


Talk to JC there, great guy to deal with.
