You're talking about a difference of $15/tire. $60 to shave the tires. $60 to heat cycle them. The Victoracer V700 can be run at full tread without chunking issues. I've done it several times...

I'm with Andy on this one. The course wasn't that fast. It's the camera angle/position that gives that impression. A Z06 would have been near the top of 2nd gear on several spots on that course,...

The 315/35 18 fits very well on a 10.5" rim. There is no discernable sidewall bulge and no issues with rollover. The rounded edges of the V710 help in that regard as well. It is a very tall tire...

The 315/35 18 works great on 18x10.5's. The V710 is the fastest DOT-R tire out of the box on the market ... you won't be disappointed.
