Wheel Sizes

Simple Questions: On a 2013 2LT/RS, are the front and back wheels the same size?

I know that they can't be roatated due to the non-directional tread, but if I wanted to buy new rims, would they all be the same size?

I swore I read that the back were 21" and the front were 20", but I could be wrong.

I want to buy some 45th anniversary rims for my camaro when I get it...

they are the same size, diameter wise. they are different width.

edit: 20" all the way around. rear are 9" wide, front are 8" wide.

20x9 rear, 20x8 fronts. And they are not directional and car be rotated side to side.

Yes thanks. Its pointless to rotate side to side though. So would 20" rims that were all the same size work?

you mean width wise yes. I recently got new wheels that only came in 20X9. I had to get new tires along with it because the ones that were on the 20x8 will not fit. But now i can rotate the tires when needed and they say handling increases a bit. I think i have noticed it on hard cornering but it very well may be a placebo effect

I wouldn't say it's "pointless". Side to side tire rotation (as with "normal" 4-tire rotation) can ensure more even tire wear, aide in maintaining tire balance, extend handling and performance characteristics, promote better MPGs, and longer tread life.
