Any word on wheel and tire sizes on the Z28?
 
I searched for the word wheel and was immediately overwhelmed with long threads so I thought I would ask here.

Does anyone know if the Z28 wheels will be wider than the current SS wheels?

I would hope so. Look at the Corvette for example: LS3 powered covette has one size of wheel where as the Z06 has the big Fatties!:thumbsup: The higher HP cars almost allways have larger wheels.

That statement is true 99% of the time. My car is the one exception.... They put a LS3 with a M6 and 3.70 gears on a set of 245 tires. Whoever made that decision needs to be "talked" to. :paddle:

well considering we don't even know if the Z28 will be a High horsepower version then we can't even answer this question. there's been no official information on the rumored Z28. sorry to be a debbie downer.

Word actually came out yesterday at GMinsider that it'll be running 22's similar to the concept version with 8.5" up front and 10.5" in the rear. Sweet!

I WANT 335S IN THE REAR!!! Yeah right, lol. I'd hope they'd get close to a 3XX mm tire.

boxmonkeyracing 05-26-2010 11:44 AM

since when did GMinsidenews become an official outlet for official news from GM officially?

Hey, something's wrong, your link keeps rickrolling me instead of sending me to GMinsider, you should go check it out or something :sm0:

djsnoflake 05-26-2010 01:58 PM

Cliffsnotes:

1: The Z/28 isn't confirmed yet, so any guesses about tire size are just guesses
2: There's a Rick Roll link in this thread

Don't know how long you've been visiting (I see your join date) but assuming you're new, you aren't missing anything :thumbsup:

Why is everyone assuming that the Z is going to be over the SS? This could be a mid range option under the 6.2.

IMO - because the current line-up directly matches Ford and Dodge offerings, and the only car left to match is the GT500 and possibly a 6.4L HEMI Challenger next year or the year after. In fact, Camaro has two different driveline combinations for SS, so why stick another model between SS and the LLT? What - we're going to have a car, for example, that runs mid-13s? I don't see that...

The poster you are responding to is probably another SS owner that doesn't want a Z/28 model to have more HP than his SS. Plenty of those people around and for the life of me I don't understand their thinking.

I don't understand either, but maybe I'm just reading it wrong. All I know is I want Z28; I miss mine :cry:

I really really hate you brandotron! ;)

zebra 05-27-2010 09:15 PM

i'd go for some 325s like the vette GS

Ahhhhhh, aint speculation, based on rumor, mixed with a bit of fact from related or similar cars grand? Add a little, "I hope, I wish and an occasional Chevy better do XYZ or else" and you have an awesome thread.
