Question Will These Tires Work?

Hello, I have a 2010 LS with 22 inch rims I bought from factoryreproductions.com (http://www.factoryreproductions.com/...-Black-c46.htm) 22x10 back and 22x9 in the front, I want to buy Pirelli 295/30ZR22 103W SCORPION ZERO ASIM OD 29.1 for the back and 265/35ZR22 102W SCORPION ZERO ASIM OD 29.4. for the front. Will these tires fit? The technician at the tire shop says they won't but when I do the math, I think they will. Please help , I want to make my purchase this week.

Here's a sticky for recommended tire sizes. Scroll down to the 22's and find what tire size based on the widths. Good luck and post pics when you get them installed!

Thank you for the reply, I read that whole thread before starting this one and the front tires 265/35 22 Tall = 29.4 is not listed the tallest listed is 29.1, but I am having such a hard time finding a combination of the same brand and pattern that includes either the back two being 295/30 22 or 285/30 22 and the front two being 265/30 22 or 255/35 22. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the reply, they said the front two Pirelli Scorpion Zero 265/35ZR22 102W OD 29.4 were to tall for a 2010 Camaro and would not fit.

do the 265 front but do a 305x30 rear..it is .2 difference in height..want to keep fronts and rear tire height as close as possible. my fronts are 30 series and 1 inch shorter than yours @ 29.4 inches , thats 1/2 on top and 1/2 on bottom...my car is dropped almost 2 inches and have no issues with tires .i could add your tire size and still have no problem that i can see. i am running 315, so 305 should be no problem..that i know..

Thanks for the reply, I think the 305 are to wide for a 22x10 rim, if I had 22x11's like you it would work. Or else I could buy some Pirelli P Zero Nero's 305/30ZR22 and 265/30ZR22

305/30-22 = 29.2" tall, 10.0-11.0 wheel

Thanks for the reply, I found some Nitto Invo with the help of Nine Ball that will work for me perfectly. Nitto Invo 285/30R22 101W OD 28.82 that fit the 22x10 inch rim perfectly and I think I will go with a 255/35R22 99W OD 29.06 that fit the 22x9 inch rim perfectly. Thanks for all your help, this is the first Camaro I own and the first car I have bought upgrades for, so I am definitely a newbie to this.

Here are some pics of the rims and tires, I also bought the Gorilla Acorn Black Chrome 20 set wheel locks, they look good. I bought the chevy emblem center caps and they are getting painted flat black, thats why they are not in the pics, The rims are painted flat black, but I think later on I will have then powder coated black.
