Looks like after my trip to sturgis, my rear tires are gonzo. Time for new ones, thanks for the info in this thread.

Seriously though your speedo will read 75mph and you'll be doing 79.22mph or in my case the speedo reads 100mph when I'm doing 105.6mph.

All that was based on the rear tires feeding the speedo. If it's the front tires then The GY's and Michelins are only .2" different going from 285's to 295's.
I went from 28.75 OD rear to 27.8 rear and there was only like .5mph difference. 70 mph was actually70.5 and so on.

I've been running the Super Sports for a while now in the 295/315 configuration. They have excellent wear and grip very well!







You can find tires that perform better but nothing that will perform and wear like these!

Kind regards,

Tire Buyer.com

Linked through ebates.com = 5% rebate
Use code "retailmenot12"= 12% off
Michelin rebate = $70

Net delivered after rebates was under $1,300 for the set. Mine were 285/315's though.

I love mine!

Oh heck no, you won't get any nagging from me. These tires and the chosen size are perfect for these cars.

I checked my car's speedo along with my GPS at 55mph and they were only off by a little over 1mph. That tells me going from the stock 305 to the 315 affects the speedo's accuracy very minimal.

Did you get the 295's in front, Costco told me they could get 285's but no 295's. Do you have a part #?

I took these two shots comparing the difference in size between the rear and front. The tires on the left are the Goodyears.

WELCOME TO THE PSS FAMILY! LONG LIVE THE SUPER SPORTS!! I got mine back in November and I've loved them ever since. I've already put more miles on them than I had on my GYs and they still have more tread left.

I sold my stock tires. I will post some pics after I clean the car this weekend. These daily showers we have make it almost impossible to keep my car clean.

I just installed Aftermarket LG wheels on my 2010 Camaro SS Same size and offset as factory ZL1 rims. i put brand new Goodyear F1 Supercar tires on them OEM size all around. Now I have a very slight shimmy in the steering wheel between 50-60 MPH. I have had them balanced twice, Second time on a Hunter Road Force Balance machine. That made it better. But still there a little bit. Any thoughts??

You might want to have your wheels and tires indexed. That's an extra step that some shops do to get a wheel balanced as perfectly as possible.

My dealership did mine and did an awesome job. One of my wheels is perfectly balanced without a single weight.
