BrianJTake care before you buy tyres -if your car is still under warranty or Porsche Approved Warranty (or if you want to take out or renew the latter) the OPC will insist on the tyres all being the same brand and probably the same N rating. Depending on the OPC, you may get away with the same tyres but different N rating for front and rear axles (eg P Zeros with new N1 on front axle and older N0 on rear). Worth discussing with them if in doubt. You don't say what size your wheels are - for example, on 20", the N1 Pirellis are a much better tyre than the N0.
MotorheadI think that they’re more likely to be 20” Anthony [?], but according to the Porsche Configurator, for the current 4.0L GTS there are three 20” N-rated options: Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2, Michelin PS4S and the Pirelli P-Zero. I had the Goodyears on my ancient Mk5 Golf GTi, my GR Yaris has the MPS4S tyres and my 987.2 CS is fitted with ageing Pirellis. Three very different cars fitted with three different tyres, but I think I’d plump either for the Goodyears or Michelins for a replacement, although the latest versions of the Pirellis seem to have their fans. They’re all N-rated and will have been tested rigorously by the Porsche development team to ensure that they’re the right tyre for your car. Jeff
GrahamW+1 for the Goodyears. I've run them on my previous 981 and now on the 718s. As good as the P Zero N1 originally fitted (if not better) and much quieter over most road surfacer's. Better mileages too.
AlistairFI have goodyears on my 981S. (19") They are fine but don't think they will be 'quiet'.They were quite a bit cheaper than the Pirelli last time I checked. There is also a N rated Hankook option which were cheaper still but I have seen no feedback on these.
LesGTSMy OPC recently sold me a 2015 981 Boxster with 3 Pirelli N1s and 1 Pirelli N0 and, despite my challenge, the SE felt this was acceptable and wouldn’t budge as “they were all Pirellis and it had been through the 111 Porsche check.”Should l be challenging this further as l have their warranty till 2026?Thanks
