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! 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.

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.

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

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

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.
