that car was built in my home, Quebec. Ste. Therese may be closed, but the spirit of Camaro is strong in these here parts! Very nice 4th gen!

What's heads and cam is he running? I'm assuming he got the stock wheels widened to get 315's on there? That car looks great, I like the antenna mod he did on it too.

315's will fit on stock wheels -- especially the Nitto's since they run small.

Maybe a nitto, but the others are not exactly the safest setup running a 315 on a 9" wheel. There's a reason for that sticky on Tech.

ALLLLL the years people whine and complain about 315's on 9" wheels -- how many documented problems?

I'll be honest in that I've not spent any time researching the issue, but in nearly any thread that someone mentions 315's on a stock wheel, it's a pile-on regarding how "dangerous" it is.

They've worked fine in my experience, so that's the experience I have used.

This is my friend's 99 Formula w/315's. Just fine.

Can't say since I don't ever plan on doing it and I don't ever see a 315 rated to be smashed on to a tiny wheel like that. It might work for drag racing, but I'd rather not try to take a turn and have that thing come right of with the sidewall all bunched up like that.

Even Nitto doesn't list anything wider than a 285 for a 9" wheel for the 555R. I'll take theire word that it's a better idea just to get the right wheels if I want to run steam rollers. No offense to you man, hope it keeps working out for you. I'd rather not see tore up cars.

No offense taken. I've read what the "experts" say, but no one has verification.

Trust me, it's not smashed on there, either.

Disclaimer: I am in no way trying to "advocate" running 315's on a 9 inch wheel. Like has been mentioned, it's quite a strong topic. If one chooses to run such a wide tire on the factory wheel, do understand that there is nothing suggesting that it is perfectly fine to do so.

I wasn't sold on doing the 315 rear tires. Reasons being...

1. Cost
2. No rotation allowed. Obviously I can't run a 315 up front.
3. Most important, I don't know how F-bodies are, but on my last 5.0 Foxbody, I had 245s up front with 275s out back and it understeered pretty bad. Since I'll be autox and HPDE like events, I did not want it to understeer like the Mustang did. That would be scary real quick.

That's what I have on my gt, but it feels so solid.

Mine pushed through the turns. The fronts were some never heard of brand and the rears were raptors. They were on the car when i bought it. Always wondered it the fronts were worth a damn. If your car is solid with the setup, then I guess that answers my question.

IIRC it's easier to fit 315's up front than it is on the rear of the car. I remember a few threads where guys were running them on all four corners for Auto-X and road racing.

Interesting. I've been reading a lot on Corner Carvers and I could have swore it took a different offset rim (spacers?) and rolling the fender. Both which is not going to happen to my car.

Oh yea, I'm sure the offsets aren't identical. I'll have to see if I can dig up where I was reading that, the wheel sticky on Tech has a note about it but not the specifics of how to do it.


Not the thread I remember, but if gives you an idea.
