Camaro SS 20s vs Camaro SS 19s

Two Camaro SS with same mods one running 1LE wheels at 28" overall diameter and the other with a 19" setup with overall wheel diameter of 26.9" . Now remember same mods. Which should win on a runway up to say 140 mph. Which do you think would win.

I have no idea but the 1le fast list places the fastest one on their list would be 16th on ss/m6 fast list.

The one with 19s should win by a car car and half all things being equal.

I agree with DarkneSS.

When the 19" setup gets to 140, the 20" setup will be about 18 feet behind and he'll only be going a little over 139 mph.

If the guy with the 19" setup stays in it until the guy with the 20's hits 140, he'll be more like 50 - 55 feet ahead and going nearly 141 mph.

I assumed you meant for both to be LS3 powered.

Actually the 1LE wheels are almost 8 lbs heavier each.

the 19's on the 1LE are heavier than the 20's? Is that the wheels by themselves or with the tires? Could see them being heavier then the fronts on the SS since they are narrower tires correct?

No the 1LE has forged 20s but lighter than SS 20s. My 19" wheels are way lighter. The Enkei Raijin with NItto 275-35-19 is 52lbs, the 19x11" with 305-35-19 Bridgetone RE11 is 56.7 lbs. Both 1LE wheels are over 60 lbs.
