I recently replaced the Goodyear GS-C's on my 95 Corvette ZR1 with Michelin Pilot MXX3 SX tires. I have found that the michelin's have all around better wet/dry performance than the Goodyear's, but the Michelin's are even more expensive than the Goodyear's.

The Eagle GT II I beleive is more of an all-season performance tire than an all-out performance tire such as the Michelin Pilots and Goodyear GS-C's, so I would expect the Eagle GT's would not have the handling characteristics that you are used to.

What ever tire you decide to go with, make sure they are at least "V" speed rated (preferably "Z" rated). The performance capabilities of the 95 Z28 Camaro require at least a "V" rated tire (up to 149mph) for safety purposes if nothing else.
