I'm not a fan of the giant 305/45 18 tires, but if you want to run those there are plenty of 245/50 18 (27.6" tall) and 245/55 18 (28.6" tall) tires you can run.
To stay close to the stock diameter I'd have to run the 245/55/18s, but that is such a high profile tire.

Why do you want to stay so close to stock diameter?

If I drop down too much I'm pretty sure I'll need to get my car re-tuned. I'm not sure how it will affect my speedo and shift points (change gearing) being an auto with a stall (very easily bumps rev limiter).

But I was thinking maybe 245/50/18 front and 305/40/18 out back. They would both be 27.80" (basically 1" shorter than stock).

Oh, yeah i forgot about you auto guys' shift points. I think the 245/50 & 305/40 would be a good setup. Or even do 245/45 & 315/40 like I had, that way you have smaller lighter fronts and taller rears. That set up was only a 4.6% difference in diameter.

You can have up to a 6% difference in front/rear before the ABS/Stabilitrack freaks out.

M&H's are undersized so they're more like an actual 325. Not sure on the offset I ordered them through Tony. If I have to do a little massaging that's cool, I'll make them work.

I am not a fan of the smaller wheels but it looks good on your Camaro. I like the new tires.

Our paint schemes and exterior MODS are similar...our cars even have the same name! lol

Tony knows what he is doing so you should be OK.
Take LOTS of pics when you get them on!

Nice offset and wheel choice. Gotta say though...you need to lose the mudflaps. They don't flow well on your car.

Yeah, some people don't like them but it keeps the rock chips to a minimum and it sure beats taping up my quarter panels everytime I go to the track.

I had my drag radials on for about 100 miles...they stick out slightly and you can't imagine how much crap the tires throw up on the rear panels. I couldn't wait til I got them off and the stocks back on. When you're at the strip, it's a necessary evil, but for the street, I wouldn't want them sticking out. I was even thinking about the small factory extensions like mud flap thingys?????

You have the wrong offset wheels if your drag radials stick out. these stick out just a hair and I can't stand it.

You may have said already, but what springs do you have on it and how much is it lowered?

BMR 1" all the way around, but it actually lowers it closer to 1.25"

Ok cool. I have the Eibach 1" springs on mine so it should be similar.
