Nate,

Ah ha, someone with 315/285 PSS!! So are you having ANY rubbing issues, any issues at all with the 315's on the rear?

How do you know they didn't?

It is entirely possible that if those systems were calibrated for "regular SS" tires that you could still exceed their capabilities to correct in cold weather on those Goodyear G: 2 tires. If those systems were calibrated to suit the way a 1LE could be expected to be driven in the summer, difficulty in the cold is all but absolutely guaranteed.

Your first sentence is exactly what 1LE and ZL1 owners need to be keeping in mind, along with some old-time winter weather driving advice (drive like there's an eggshell on the gas pedal that you aren't supposed to break). Drive gently enough in poorish conditions and you may never actually use any other form of help.


I have a pretty good idea what you 1LE guys are up against here. The Goodyear Asymmetrics that I run for 3 seasons out of the year are only enough better in cool/cold weather than the G:2's to not have warnings posted about potential tread cracking; their traction starts to suck at about 45°F instead.

Jim, you live in Arizona... no need to change the from the stock Goodyears for the few times it may get cold enough for it to matter with the traction on the Goodyears.

That being said, I highly recommend the Michelin PSS, again don't waste time on the Michelin All-weather tires in Arizona. I ran the Michelin PSS all winter in Arizona and had no issues with traction.

Once my stock Goodyears need replacing I plan on going with the Michelin PSS.

Michelin PSS have better grip than the Goodyears from my experience, wet or dry track and just ask Tire Rack which are the best rated....unless you're going to a full track tire, I wouldn't run anything but the Michelin's....

Zero rubbing issues. They fit like a glove.

Your not alone been driving mine at -5 (26 degrees I think) Grew up driving on bald tires in middle of winter on my 72 Nova cause that's all I could afford. These good years with traction control are like the winter tires I never had LOL!!

Beautiful pictures, I can't help but love your car (same color as mine), and those tires are on my wish list.

Those of you that went with a bigger size tire, did you have to recalibrate the speedometer?

Thanks Nate! Thinking out loud here; I wonder if the 295 would work on the front?

Depends on the wheel offset and camber you run...I know some who have run on Forgeline's, but not on the 1LE wheels not a lot of room up front to the inside once you run -1.6 or more.

This morning it was 48 degrees outside in NC. Driving my kids to school. Going straight rolling on in third gear at 3k rpms, the car steps out sideways. Goodyears with only 4400 miles on them. PLenty of tread, still look pretty new. I was only about 3/4 of a mile away from the house. Car usually spins bad in 2nd gear when the tires are warm, but has never broken loose in 3rd going straight at about 3/4 throttle. This was with the traction control on.

Car makes a little more power than stock though. LOL

Eforce, LT headers, CAI. About 590 whp and 500+ ft lbs. But still it was a quick wake up.

Later on after tires got some heat in them and the coolant temp got up, I could go 3/4 throttle in 3rd and no spinning that I could tell.

Figured that would be pushing it, thanks SoCal, much appreciated. Sweet car you have there!

Hey Nate, would you mind posting a couple rear view photos of that beast of yours so we can get an idea of how those 315's look from the rear and just how wide they really are?
