Thickest Rear Tires That'll Fit

I'm thinking of giving my Camaro a bit of an old school rake by lowering the front and putting thicker tires on the back. Does anyone know what the thickest tires that will fit on the rear (stock rims) without rubbing are?

Thanks

You'll have to keep the OD very close on these cars, because the abs doesn't like different tire sizes. You could run a little smaller wheel in the back to get more sidewall than the front, but that's about it.

Front and rear tire height difference needs to be within 0.5" or less in total height, otherwise your Stabilitrak, ABS brakes, and traction control will all throw codes and not function. Most newer vehicles don't work like old cars, they have sensors on each wheel that look for a certain range of rotations and compare the front to the rear.

you can put 305's on the stock wheels and still fit. Now is it safe to put that wide of a tire on the 9" wheel. Experts will tell you no, but many do it.

26.6" 19" wheel in front , 27.5" 20" wheel in rear , rain, sunshine, hale, tornado even if it's raining aligators and pythons, ABS works on my 2012 and haven't seen a code or light on dash as of yet going on for a couple of months.
