Wheels and Slicks for 2SS

Looking for wheels and slicks for 2010 2SS Camaro.
Currently have 275/35/21s in the back w/o the Brembo brake dampners (they are on the front).

Heard from SummittRacing that i Could go down to 17"s in the back from WeldRacing but am not sure....

Keep having launch problems with stock street tires - 9.09 @83.11 mph in 1/8 mile; dont have the 60 foot time in front of me, but I am sure it is well into 2-3 seconds....


thanks

Unless you have some real deep pockets, 17" wheels that will clear the brembos are not readily available. Bogarts are the only ones I know of that will work. I think your looking at about a grand per wheel. The cheaper way out is to use the C6 Z06 front 18" wheels with the +40 offset. New aftermarket wheels can be had for about 270 per wheel. Cheaper but will limit your selection of available tires. Sometimes the cost to play is a lot.
