Replicas will be fine. So what size for the rear is best?

How wide also?

9.5 to 10.5 get what you can find. They seem to be hard to get these days.

Most that have run the nitto NT05 and MT in 305/45r18 prefer the hookup of the MT's.


Another option is M&H drag radial in 325/40r18. Need a 11" wide wheel though.

This might be as close as your gonna get to a slick in a DR with its increased width.

I run 18" simply because the tires and wheels are cheaper and the sidewall is more compliant on an 18" tire. Next time I will get the 305/45-18 vs the 305/35-18 I have now because of the height difference. The transmission sometimes gets confused because the wheel speed is different than the indicated speed and I don't have a tune to compensate for the tire swap.

I have no doubt the 20" M/T will hook great. If the ZL1 wheels were easier to find or if a manufacturer made a replica, I would run the 20". The 18" grand sport replica is the best looking replica wheel for the ZL1 I have seen so far. I settled for the Z06 replica and they are fine.

We ran my other set of 17" Bogarts with a 325 M & H drag radial on Ted Jannetty's stock ZL1 back in Sept. they hooked like a mofo.
