Recommended Tire Sizes for 2010 Camaro
 
I will list tire sizes that are similar to OEM diameter, as this should help tire shoppers. The heights shown below are approximate, based on calculations. Refer to tire manufacturer's specs for the most accurate tire diameters. We recommend you stay within 0.5" (plus or minus) of the factory tire height in order to maintain accurate vehicle systems. This gives you an acceptable range of 28.2-29.3" diameters. Wheel widths shown are recommended, and only serve as a suggestion for proper fitment/appearance/performance.

Front 245/45-20 = 28.7" tall, 8.0 wheel

awesome!!!

Scott@Bjorn3D 01-27-2010 11:24 AM

Tag!!

You should make this a sticky!!

Nine Ball 01-27-2010 12:02 PM

I'll also add that on my list above, not all of those tire sizes exist. But, if they did, those would be the right sizes. When shopping, you will find that sizes in 21" and 22" are very limited when it comes to brands and choices. 20" tires are plentiful in brands and sizes.

Glad to help,
Tony

Good job......that saves a lot of time for people without easy access to tire dimensional data guides.

Archangel 01-28-2010 12:41 PM

Not to be a pain in the butt but would it be possible to get those numbers for 19s...just incase


Please


Oh and thank you it was just the information I was looking for.

Nine Ball 01-28-2010 01:29 PM

No problem. Updated the list with 18s and 19s.

Tony

Agreed! 21" is the worst, followed closely by 22". Right now if you don't want to buy Pzero Neros, you basically have to cut down to 9"/10.5" and run 255/285 widths.

55Designs 01-28-2010 06:50 PM

Tony or anyone can you put together a list of matching brand/series tires front and rear for 21 and 22. This will help us alot if we know what to search for. Some of the sizes listed dont have matching fronts for a set.

OminouSS 01-28-2010 07:25 PM

Freaking awesome.

Toasty 01-28-2010 07:43 PM

It may sound weird, but what about 17's? Snow tires FTW!!

Nine Ball 01-29-2010 08:47 AM

Being the wheel obsessed guy that I am, it would be very hard for me to suggest putting 17s on these cars. I'd recommend a link to Autotrader to shop for a proper winter beater :)

LOL!

d69chris 01-29-2010 10:19 AM

Great Info, everyone needs this!:thumbup:

Thanks for putting it together:bow:

haha... no room in the garage/driveway for a winter beater!.... winter wheels will likely be 18's, but if I can do 17's, all the better (less expensive, and more sidewall to absorb bumps/potholes, etc)

Gotthat02fire 01-29-2010 01:58 PM

Good looking out as usuall Tony this will help umm........everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

yaktownboii 02-04-2010 12:08 AM

The wheels I am buying are 22x9.5 all around, what tire size am I looking for?

Sorry, I don't provide reading lessons :)

Okay, just this once.

275/30-22 = 28.5" tall, 9.0-9.5 wheel

yaktownboii 02-05-2010 02:44 PM

Aren't you losing the ride when you go as low as 30's? Or is there not a big difference between the 30-35 profile tires?

Nine Ball 02-05-2010 02:49 PM

30 is not a size, it is a percentage. The number means nothing unless you know the width of the tire.

Example,
315/25-22

Translation:
315 millimeters wide
Sidewall thickness is 25% of the width (315mm x 0.25 = 78.75 mm = 3.1 inches)
22 inch wheel size

wishucould00 02-05-2010 06:10 PM

so any guesses on the above picture. I really want that size tire.

yaktownboii 02-06-2010 12:00 AM

265/35/22 or 265/30/22
