DMW56 Red Hot SS

I bought my 2014 Camaro 2SS 6M in Houston TX and took in on a 1000 mile test drive home to New Mexico. Quite impressed with 24mpg on the trip.

When I get on Tireracks site, it keeps defaulting to 20x9 square set up for Camaro SS on the Avarus AV13...no staggered options. I believe you have 20x9 and 20x10, so what tire sizes are you going with? I assume I'll have to give them a call direct. Thanks!

When I went to the site I got the option of 9" or10" for the rear. Try to get in from a different link and see if it changes.
