19" LT Alloys on a 2012 2SS?

Hi,

This is my first post on here. I've been looking for the answer to my question, but...

Just purchased a new 2012 2SS Transformer and would like to put snow tires on it. I've found some 19" LT take-offs that I might be able to get pretty cheap. Will the 19"s fit on the 2SS and clear the Brembo calipers. I don't know if the calipers have the roller skate weights on them because I have not picked up the car yet.

Thanks,

Bob

Spacers needed

I am running 19" OEM Camaro wheels for the winter on my 2SS. You will require a 3-4 mm spacer (front only) in order to clear the calipers. I ran the car with this setup last winter also without any issues.

Thanks! Where did you get the spacers?

And what size tires are you running. I'm thinking of the Goodyear in a 235/55-19.

I picked up a set from a local car show/swap meet.

Tapshift,

Thanks, Oh and I used to live in Etobicoke when I was a kid. Is that close to you?
