Thx for the welcome
All of the parts that are used for the SS performance package (1LE) are taken out of the ZL1 bins (Corvette for the Transmission), thus there are no extra design, testing and production costs associated with making those parts. If you're just talking about the cost of a tire size over another, think of it this way, if they are stretching a tire over a bigger rim, then that's cost effective as opposed to putting a bigger tire that would maybe be an additional what $20/per? If they are putting a bigger wheel to help eliminate the understeer for the purpose of this car, don't you think that is worth the little extra cost?
