Please keep in mind that the profile series is just a percentage of the section width, its not a measure of the actual height of the sidewall. A 305/35 (like on the rear of the ZL1) actually has about a 1/4 inch more sidewall than a 205/50 tire does. Because they are so wide, roughly 1 foot, you still end up with over 4 inches of sidewall on the ZL1.
