Tires

I was just checking the prices of the Camaro's tires. There are not many choices if any. the one I found for the 245/50/19 were approx $200 + so we will be paying close to $1,000 each time we need to replace the tires.

You will be replacing the rears probably twice for each time you replace the front. No tire rotation on the SS

fronts tend to wear faster under normal conditions, but with 400+hp on tap I'm sure that'll be true for a few folks

Your absolutely right, fronts wear out faster on FWD cars.

But seeing as how the Camaro is RWD, Scott is spot on...it will be about two set per ever one set purchased for the fronts...depending on wear and tear of course

2SS Tire prices are going to be a little hard to digest for those on a budget...Hold on to your wallets....Rear tires each are 498.00 to 522.00 list. Fronts each 457.00 list...The cheapest rears I can find are General @ 198.00 list each. Keep your teenagers on lock down...That trip to the 7-11 for milk could cost you a Grand...

It's not that bad. Tirerack has Goodyear Eagle F1 Super cars for the rear (245 45 ZR20 for $287. Also many other options for less. So if you want to burn them off, you can probably replace them for $450.

Under regular driving conditions, the front will wear quicker. I drive a RWD Mustang 5.0 LX and that has always been the case. I do not tend to drive aggressively very often though. I expect to be replacing the front on my 2SS sooner than the rear. But regardless of which end I'm going to replace, it surely won't be at the same time because I can't afford that. I'll be doing the front one month and the rear during a different month. These tires are gonna be big $ so I'm gonna have to spread out the $ over time. :(

tire cost

To replace the tires with the original Pirelli tires:

P245/45ZR20 XL 103Y P-Zero summer tires (front)- ??? - … maybe $300 x2
P275/40ZR20 P-Zero summer tires(rear)- $358 x2

This to me is like people worried about needing premium gas. If you are worried about what fixing stuff on this car will cost you, you are buying the wrong car. Pay to play, boys and girls. Pay to play.

I've never had a car where all 4 did not wear equally. I've always replaced all 4 at the same time.

Do you have your tires rotated?
