Agree on 20"

So pay for rims, and then tires your trying to tell me you can't just buy a 20"DR?

Ill be running 20's next summer, and if I want to throw my old tires back on since they are brand new, I'd much rather pay the money and have 2 more stockers, my personal opinion the black wheel oem they have made for the zl1 is nothing less then a perfectly matched beauty!

It's all in taste and purpose and different strokes for different folks but just saying, sure I'm not the only person who sees it this way

Merry x-mas all !!

...all I know is one has to buy something to drive the car even mildy under colder weather conditions because the factory tires can not even handle it at 45 degrees celcius. Hockey pucks on ice. D/R's have been reported to have a somewhat beneficial upgrade with little difference over slicks on a stock ride from those who have experienced the difference between the two here. I previously asked the same question and was told that answer.

Cold weather on those stockers are rediculous, hockey pucks is an understatement

The Mickey is also availiable in a 305/35/20 and it hooks very very good on the car making over 715 rwhp on the OEM wheels, keeping it a stock looking sleeper.

Use skate board wheels, they will give at least 4.56. I do not see how a tire is going to get your 3.23 to 4.56. It would have to be very small.

I agree, but where do we get the wheel like the rear ZL1? It would cost allot, even OEM and they do not have them.

Anyone using the 305/35/20 nittos? They're showing almost the exact same diameter 28.4" vs 28.74" stock tires.

You can order the silver 20 inch OEM wheels from the factory. I can not speak for the Black OEM wheels.
