2 inch drop running 315's???

Yet another 10 spoke wheel question sorry but no one seems to be able to answer me. I lowered my 2010 ss 2 inches and I am about to purchase a set of zl1 10 spokes (replicas) and I am wondering if I can cram a 315 wide tire in the rear. 20x8 fronts and 20x11 rear ? Anyone lowered 2 inches running a 315 ?? Any help would be appreciated !

I posted this all over an no one is running this set up, seeing if I have any luck here. I think it's do able but not 100 percent

My car is 2" lowered but I have 22" and 265s and anything bigger would be close. 20s maybe OK.

The only other one I found was a guy with 1.5 drop running 315/35/22's so I am guessing a 2 inch drop running a 315/35/20 would work

I've got 1.4" and I barely have 1/2" gap from tire to fender, it will fit but if you hit any bumps, suspension might not have any room to travel.
Good luck and post pics!

could you measure from the ground to the middle of your rear wheel well I wanna know the distance if you could. I am at I think 28 and 1/2 inches . I wanna see compared to a 1.4 drop how much of a difference there is. I've looked at my my rears an I think it wiill work but not 100 percent yet... I might have to move a brake line that is down there ... Wondering if I should go 20 x 10 or 20 x 11...

Yeah I was referring to you with the 22's. You are the closest to what I wanna do ... I might have to do a 305 on a 20x10 but honestly I don't want to lol

I have a Pfadt Stage 2 kit on my with 315 tires and measurement from the top of the tire to the edge of the fender I get 3/4" space and the width of the tire is flush to the rear quarter. With a 2" drop, that tire will be tucked in there and will most likely rub when you hit bumps or have extra weight on the back.

question is not really a suspension issue..it really pertains to your offset on rim..my rims are so correctly offset, as is uforlife, we have cor wheels ..i run 315x30x22 and jsut exactly enough clearance on inside of rear fenders...if you rims offset is 1 mm different then ours, it would most likely rub..so you would need a less wider of tire to make up the difference in offset..i might possibly fit a 325, but don,t want to risk it not fitting...also tried to run a 2 inch drop, but ran out of camber adj and really wore the crap out of inside tires...running a little over 1 1/2 so i can keep alignment perfect..imo

I believe the rear is 1.25" per Pfadt. I'm running a 20X10.5 rear wheel.

UF4LIFE is running a 1.5 drop on 22's with 315's in the back so you should be good. I talked to Dougfr about fitting 315's and the only issue I have to worry about is to tie the brake line back a little...

The correct offset is the big requirement. I'm running the 315 Nitto's mounted on CCW 505a rims 20x11.5 in back, and 20x10 in front (CCW website has all measurements for reference and upon my ordering they were great to work with. Easy!)

Also have had 2 different suspension set up's with this rim/tire combo. My very first mod just after purchase of Camaro was springs/sways and rims/tires. Ordered Detroit Speed & Engineering spring set up. Then after a year plus, stepped up into new version, complete Phadt Stage 4 coil over suspension when they launched it at CF4.

No issues with either suspension package with the 315's in back

I only had to tie back the parking brake line, as it rubbed with my deep rims (lowered or not this is required) I have noticed upon removing rear tires, that I have rubbed the inside of fender liner, however since doing some auto crossing is reason.

I have a question about lowering my 2012 SS. I just got done lowering the car 1" all the way around. Although I bought and installed just a 1" drop spring the car sits so low to the ground right now. I have a low profile small floor jack and when I lowered the car I couldn't get the jack out. Only way to get frame off of jack was to jack the car back up and place 2X6's under the front tires. This just gave me enough room to work the jack out from under the front of my car. My question is did I get the right springs and only lowered my car an inch. Has any one else seen this issue when just dropping the car 1"? Should there be a certain ground clearance from the front frame to the ground and if so what should that be? I could use all of your knowledge in finding out that I got the correct springs.

Yup most of us with lowered Camaro's and for those with ground kits! I'm both lowered and with GFX so I must drive car up on my Race Ramps first, then use my low-pro jack. (the RR versions I have are for my car trailer door)
