Do you use these Bridgestones on any daily drivers Pete? What kind of treadlife are you getting out of them? I'm sure the track eats them up, but I'm wondering about day to day driving; how long would they last?

Dumb question if you have 315's now...why can't you go back with 315's?
My tires right now are a bit shorter than the set would be on a 315/35 - 20 I think.

It already has too much push with the factory staggered setup. They look great, but 305s are the right size.

Using a track ready ridiculous alignment with a combination of street and track driving I see 12K out of a set of RE-11s. That changes radically if I do any show off burnouts. In the Mustang and Camaro I get four make everything disappear. in a cloud of smoke burnouts per pair of rear tires.

Driving like a normal person with an aggressive street alignment you should see 20K The ZL1 owners will be looking at similar tire life.

Ok got some more shots. Sorry, in a dark parking garage. Also got some measurements.

Ride height ala Pete's way of measuring: 25 5/8 inches. Sorry Pete, metric tape measure is at home. Lol

Fender gap: 1 1/2 inches, measured from edge of the body to a straight edge across the top of the tire.

I taped a flashlight to the tire so you could see better. From different positions.









It doesnt look BAD, just doesn't appeal to my tastes. Hope that helps.

Well I guess my alignment was all screwed up cause my rear Pirellis (no burn outs) just literally disentigrated before my eyes. It's good now, but tires aren't cheap. I'm actually diggin' the way my 18" OEM setup feels. No swimming in the lanes.

but anywho..... back to Randy buying (what was it?) Bridgestone something or other and you not being offended whatsoever.
