Yessir, that’s kind of what I implied by saying it adopts the same series as the Mach 1 (255/275 standard, 305/315 HP upgrade).
Bigger question is how the Trofeo RS compound stacks up to the Cup 2. One’s tried and true while the other’s relatively new. The fact that the other guy pointed that Porsche’s RS division is using this compound on their highest end models is super encouraging though.
As for the PZ4s I’m keeping an open mind. The PS4S is the goat of all-arounders but if the PZ4s stack up in the categories that matter—wet/dry handling characteristics and mechanical grip—then I think There’s nothing to worry about
RIP, not a good look lolPorsche tested the tire, but ended up going cup 2 on the production version if i recall correctly. In the tests I have seen, the Trofeo R has been lesser tire in dry traction vs cup 2, with better wet traction. Haven't seen much on the RS version.
except that Porsche has their own Cup2 formulation in the recent past so it stands to reason the Porsche version of the Trofeo is likely much different than the version Ford accepted.The fact that the other guy pointed that Porsche’s RS division is using this compound on their highest end models is super encouraging though.
Good pointI realized that the dark horse base has the same tire sizes as the GT PP. Really leaning towards base, pending what spoiler it gets, or doesn't get. I wanna drive the thing. Let my last car sit too much because of the supercar 3Rs that came on it.
Having big meaty streetable quasi-R-compounds on your daily is like rocking baseball bat schmeat in your trousers—fun for bragging rights but how often do you get to really use it
Does anyone know how the new tires are in cold weather compared to the Cup2? I’m wondering if the production limits played a part in the switch from Cup2’s.
I probably looked at the same reference you did.Someone tell me I’m missing something.

While a handful are rated 220, the overwhelming majority are rated at 60.

Pirelli's numbers are nonsense. I have the PZ4C tires Ford put on the EB/PP with 80. They wear like the 300 series PS4S. Even cold Cup2 (50F) grab and throw vastly more sand/particles than these "not remotely gumball" Pirelli's do at 90F.Someone tell me I’m missing something.
