And speaking about sizes and such, where are the speedometer sensors located, I assume the rear wheels? This is important as some of us might need the speedo re-calibrated. For instance, I will run 20x10 with 295 in the rear so I will have this (and it is said that anything over 1% needs re-calibration):

I guess it all comes down to what brand of tires you like, and if they offer the sizes you need. That's the problem I'm running into.
Just do what I'm doing and run what we know works from GM, Goodyear F1 supercar 285 front and 305 rear. :-)

I want polished 20X9s. Is there a chance if they go out of stock that it could be a LONG time before more are available?
We try to keep good inventory sometimes we do run out.

We are releasing the wheels to our wholesale and dealer accounts on Monday, May 20th. I expect the wheel to be popular. Our distrubution channels are worldwide.

Great tires after putting on my 10-spoke ZL1 wheels w/ the F1's I am sold on these a great ride, and they handle no issues

No, I was just pointing out the ZL1 sizes. I will be running 285 fronts and 305 rears, just like ZL1. Are you going to run 305 fronts?

I've got 265/35/22 fronts now and I THINK I can run a 295/40/20 in the front but I doubt it. I;d love to run 295/40/20 on all corners but will probly end up with the 315/275 combo or 285/40 squared.

You could but you are going to stretch them IMHO too much run the 285/35 up front and either 305's or 315's out back.

Remember the 315 tire is alot cheaper than the 305, I paid like $680 for both of my rear Continental tires (315) when I priced out the Pzeros, and F1's they were almost $400 more.

I had 315's out back on my 5-spoke ZL1 wheels, the new 10-spokes I picked up have the 305's on them.
