ZL1 Wheel Question

I just got my 2014 2SS/RS Camaro. I'm in love with the ZL1 wheels. Can anyone tell me how I would go about getting some?

I checked out the ones on Phastek but they only sell 20x9 for the front and 20x10 for the back. My stock tires are 20x8 in the front and 20x9 in the back. I also have a set of tires that are 20x9 all the way around.

I'd prefer not to have to buy new tires and I'm not very educated in this topic. Any advice helps, thanks.

Defintely use the search tool you will find tons upon tons of posts about this. Your best bet in my (and many others) opinion is factory reproductions style 41. Almost identical to zl1 wheels and can get them in almost any size to match your tires. Look great and great quality.

I'm assuming that you mean your tire sizes are 245/45-20 up front and 275/40-20 for the rear (it's the stock wheel sizes that are 20x8 and 20x9).

If those are your tire sizes, it is still technically acceptable to mount the 245/45's on 9" wide front rims and to put the 275/40's on 10" wide rims. FWIW, a 9" wide rim is the max recommended width for 245/45 tires, so the fronts may look slightly "stretched". But it's still a perfectly legitimate fitment, and might even reduce the amount of understeer a little.

So essentially what you're saying is I could put 20x9 (front) and 20x10 (back) wheels on the stock tires I'm using right now? Sorry I'm a bit uneducated when it comes to this subject.

It's absolutely what I'm saying.

Don't feel bad about feeling "uneducated" - except for those who took a college-level automotive engineering curriculum or got a job at a place like Tire Rack, it's the kind of stuff you learn on your own if you learn anything about it at all.
