Thats the good news...

here's the bad news. (http://www.tirerack.com/tires/Sizes.jsp?make=Michelin&model=Pilot+Sport+Cup&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes&partnum=43YR0SPORTCUPXL)

Life is so unfair.

I'm willing to bet this is the tire all the tire mfrs told me wasn't going to come out: the track tire for the new Nissan rocketship. Look at the two 20" sizes available. Both are low-pro versions of the stock Nissan tire.

Those bastages.

But if Michelin does it, so might others and if they do a taller, fatter tire (255/35/20?) I am soooo there.

why not get a nice set of 19" lightweight racing wheels? the vette guys seem to have plenty of 19" options
