Corvette Z06/Z07 Tires and Brakes Parts Cost More than a Chevy Cruze

A new 2015 Corvette Z06 armed with the Z07 performance package is one of the most potent track weapons available. The Z07 adds carbon ceramic brake rotors for increased stopping power and those wheels are wrapped in sticky Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup tires.

Anyone tracking these cars on a regular basis will need replacement parts, especially when it comes to two of racings most consumable items behind fuel: tires and brakes.

A user on Jalopnik’s Opposite Lock shared a quote from a Chevrolet dealer’s parts counter. Shockingly, a set of rotors, new Michelin tires and brake pads cost more than a new 2015 Chevrolet Cruze.

Corvette Chief Engineer Denies Plans for a Mid Engine Corvette Zora ZR1

Tadge Juechter was John McElroy’s guest on Autoline After Hours for Thursday, March 12, where the Corvette Chief Engineer spoke about the Z06 and the differences between the various Z06 packages available. McElroy and Juechter were also joined by Todd Lassa, Executive Editor of Automobile magazine and Gary Vasilash, from Automotive Design & Production.

It was interesting listening to Tadge’s response to several questions about the Corvette, but perhaps none was as interesting and important as his denial that a mid engine Corvette was in the brand’s immediate future.

Let me ask you a question.

Did you eat a lot of ice cream with sprinkles when you were a little kid?

Well, now that you’re all grown up and wearing your big-boy britches, you’d better quit eating it because ice cream with sprinkles is just for kids.

If you follow the logic of some folks who apparently believe that a Corvette driver must be under 30 with jet black hair and a 30-inch waistline, then it makes just as much sense to ban anyone over the age of 12 from eating ice cream with sprinkles.
