Would 2014 Z/28 rims & tires fit on 2013 ZL1 ???

Would 2014 Z/28 rims & tires fit on 2013 ZL1 ???
going from 295/35R20 10" front 315/35R20 11" rear ZL1
to the 305/30R19 11.5" rear Z/28
Just wondering if frame / body are the same, and if there would be any fitment issues. I would love to get more rubber on the ground.

It looks as if Chevy has added some small plastic "lips" to the fenders to cover the bulging tires on the Z28. I assume that if we add the sam elips, then the wheels/tires should fit fine.
HeHe, there goes the Z28 advantage.

That's what I was seeing to. The question is can we order The fender flare lips with our paint code and will they fit with the rock guards (Front and rear) that I installed on my car. I am going to get with the dealership if nobody here can answer if the fitment, backspacing etc is the same & shouldn't be an issue?
On a side note, Tire Rack doesn't list the tires for the Z/28 yet.
(One can never have enough GRIP !!! )

Wasn't there some other suspension tuning done to get that tire and wheel package to work on the Z28?

I believe there is a different front bar. Could be wrong.

I think the front tires are the same as the back (305's). You would have to put some type of fender flare on the car.

Madmaxx18, are you saying you put the 305/35R19" all around ( Fronts to )?
& if so do they fit without rub issues on the front, and do they stick out passed the fenders? Everyone even GM says 295's are the largest you can put on the front of our cars ZL1

I want to put the Z/28 tires (305/30R19)width(11" fronts & 11.5"rears) on the ZL1
We have now 10" fronts and 11" rears for ZL1
