Arrow 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.

Factory 2010 Camaro SS tires and wheels
Front 245/45-20 = 28.7" tall, 8.0 wheel
Rear 275/40-20 = 28.7" tall, 9.0 wheel

Factory 2012 Camaro ZL1 tires and wheels
Front 285/35-20 = 27.9" tall, 10.0 wheel

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

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.

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.

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!

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)

Sorry, I don't provide reading lessons

Okay, just this once.

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

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?

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
