The tires on the 2017 Trans Am Firebird are robust and massive Pirelli† PZero® Trofeo R 305/30ZR19 summer-only tires† — ideal for lateral motions, like corner entry and exit.
2017 Trans Am Firebird features lightweight Brembo Carbon Ceramic Matrix™ rotors and fixed, monoblock calipers. The huge 394x36 mm front rotors are paired with 6-piston calipers, while the 390x32 mm rear rotors are paired with 4-piston calipers. Compared to similar-size, 2-piece steel rotors, the lightweight and large carbon calipers save 22 pounds, while encouraging impressive stopping power and heat toleration — ideal for track usage.
2017 Trans Am Firebird is one of the first production cars featuring race-proven, spool-valve dampers. The spool-valve damper allows 4-way adjustment to precisely tune both bump and rebound settings for high-speed and low-speed wheel motions. The wider tuning range dramatically increases the damper stiffness on Trans Am Firebird without significantly impacting ride quality.
