That was my question....I know they are left and right but also I'm sure the backs wear quicker than the fronts. I would love to rotate them straight front to back. I'd try a 10 in the rear but mine is being built next week.

I'd say that depends on what kind of driver you are. If you're more into hard acceleration than hard cornering, probably so. But if you're consistently hitting the turns harder (the 1LE really is intended to be lots better at this than the run-of-the-mill SS), they'll likely wear at more similar rates.

Eventually somebody will figure out whether a small hub-centric spacer (and longer/stronger wheel studs) will work so that 11's can be run up front.

My question about 10's on the rear is more about winter wheels/tires. I was wondering if you could purchase a set of four 10's for winter use.

I bought a set of four 10" wheels for a winter set, and put 275's on it. I bought Continental DWS. I have been very pleased with the tires, and have already used the road hazard warranty because of a pothole. (definite +1 )

The 10" rear wheels don't grip as well for fast starts, and have a little less grip for high speed cornering, but the difference isn't enough to take the perma grin off.

Some of the guys have been putting 11" wheels on the rear and running 315 continentals (the front tire size will be a little different ), and have reported good results.

As a note; I recommend using the Goodyears, or something similar for summer use. After the weather warms up, the 11" wheels and sticky tires really grab the road.

An afterthought: you must use 20" wheels.

I am looking into a stock SS setup for my winter tires.
Front: 20x9 wheels with 245/45ZR20 (Goodyear Eagle GT all season)
Rear: 20x10 wheels with 275/40ZR20 (Goodyear Eagle GT all season)
This set-up with TPMS, mounting, etc. can be had from Tire Rack for around $1800.
I will do this or drive my wife's car in the winter months.

MPHS_AGM - What made you go with all season tires rather than actual winter tires?
