Concept tire width

Does anybody know the width of the wheels/tires on the Concept. I love how they just barely stick out beyond the fenders and quarter panels and would love the same look on my car. I would guess 9" - 10", but they maybe as fat as 11"-12". Any help?

I'd expect the same width for cost reasons. With GM stock the way it is right now, GM cannot afford to spend extra on tires. You'll need to go aftermarket for the width you want.

I think 275's front and 315-335 back should suffice.

That is a measurement in millimeters...
The numbers on a tire are: the width in millimeters/ height measured as a percentage of the width/ the rim diameter.

So say a 305/65/R15 has a width of 305 millimeters, a height that is 65% of that (198.25 millimeters) and a 15 inch diameter rim.

Edit: 305 mm = about 12 inches(12.00785)
mm x .03937 = inches
