20 " snow tires ? from dealer?

So the IDL on the 9th mentioned 20 " snow tires. Will this be added as an option from the dealer?

If you read the quote, It says Perelli reccomends them if you live in snowy areas.

I take that to mean, "Hey if you don't want to cream a streetlight, buy some winter tires"
And that Pirelli just happens to make winter tires that fit a 20 inch rim. Those should cost a mint.

Unfortunately, the Pirelli's only fit the rear wheels.

The car was just tested - there were no mention of selling them.

I'd like to see tests with BLIZZAKS

We may need to go to a brand otehr than Pirelli for either All Seasons, or Snow Tires that fit all 4... I wish not though.

I plan to drive to BJAA and spend a month in South west next Jan. But have to get thru the Grants Pass snow to get there ... Sure do not want to take 2 or 4 tires with me.

I want to get 4 plain steel wheels and 4 snow tires for the winter. In the long run, it may be less expensive than replacing the 20" summer tires as often.

What I want to know is; how can we figure out what plain jane wheels will fit the car? We don't need for them to be 20" wheels and tires. In fact, it may be better for the winter to have small diameter wheels and that would certainly provide more and less expensive tire options.

I'm also going to be very happy to keep my 20" wheels away from the salt all winter!

If you're getting an SS, the problem may be that the brakes don't fit inside the steel wheels.

Yeah i say two sets of wheels. But the better option and the one i would do and some others have said is have a winter 4x4 that was cheap, and leave the maro in the garage, probably on jack stands (don't want flat spots) with a cover (dust is a bitch)

There are other good brands for snows, Dunlop and Blizzak to name a couple.

Not in 20's and the RS limits the rear wheels to 20 "

If you've got the V6's FE2 suspension and brakes, the 18" aluminum and steel wheels should fit on there without a problem. Also, ALL wheel and tire combos on the camaro yield the same outer tire diameter, so you don't need to worry about the speedometer, etc, as long as you get the right size tire. Problem is, a set of 1LT rims and snow tires could get pretty pricey.

There have been posts on here about the RS option impacting the rear. When you order RS you get the V8 hubs and a 4.5 link vs he 4.0 . The 18" will not fit.

Well, GM was running Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow tires on their CTF cars over the winter. I'd consider those if I lived somewhere that it snowed more than once every 5 or so years.

wait wait wait...so you guys are saying that the car wont come with all season tires if you live somewhere where it snows? i mean i know the factory wont do that but the dealers wont put on the all season tires for you? and if they do i have to pay extra for that? thats just stupid if thats true! and if i do have to pay for the snow tires i better be keeping the original performance tires!
