All Weather Tires
 
Where can I find a good set of all weather tires for a ZL1?

I hear the Goodyears suck in the rain.

Want get all my ducks in a row before I take the plunge.

Plus I want something that won't crack when it dips below 40.

I'm in the same boat. Here is my list and order of preference so far:

1. Toyo Proxes 4 Plus
2. Continental Extreme Contact DWS
3. Nitto Motivo
4. Hankook Ventus ST RH06

My question is can i go with 275/40s on all four corners with front 20x9.5" and rear 20x11" rims?

I would go with the Conti's
275/40 front and 315/35 rear that would give you the same tire diameter at all four corners

If you're just looking for something in 3 season but want better low temp and rain traction I would go with michelin pilot super sport tires

I went with the Conti's Extreme Contact DWS in 275/40R20 on all four corners and couldn't be happier. They give superior traction in all kinds of weather, stability because they are all the same size and they can be rotated. If you use an online tire comparison tool you will see that this size is extremely close to stock, more so than most other sizes.

Correct me if i'm wrong but that configuration was not with the stock size rims, correct?

I'm getting a a set of Pirelli SottoZero Serie II's for the "cold weather". They are a "winter" tire that apparently has great traction in dry/wet/snow. They are stock on Porsche's and Ferrari's and what GM recommended for a winter tire. I'm going to run them on a 1LE but I imagine it would be great for a ZL1. Im probably going to go 100% stock sizes. 285/35/20 on 20x10;20x11 unless someone convinces me otherwise haha
