Best wheel and tire setup

Dear Camaro5 community,
We are currently working on producing a new line of wheels and we wanted to cater our wheels to the preferences and specifications of the fellow camaro5 community.
Would you guys prefer a more aggressive setup (EX: a square 20x11" setup, or staggered 20x10 up front, with 20x11's in the rear) or would you like a more conservative setup (EX: A staggered 20x8.5-9 in the fronts and 20x10-10.5 in the rears)
Let us know!
Best,

I love 20x10 20x11 since it's what I just swapped too. Though I do love the Z28 19x11 19x11.5

Not sure how hard it would be to make 20x11 square without major issues

Hey, It really isn't that much of an issue, as long as we supply the correct fitment you should be fine. These fifth gens have a lot of room under their fenders.

I have the stock staggered setup but will go with a square 20x10 setup once I find a wheel I like. I like the deepdish (concave) look and want to be able to rotate my tires.

Thanks! Wanted 11" in the back for 315s, but was worried about fitment!

No worries it turned out great anyways, do you have any plans on lowering it anytime soon?

Honestly, I don't like the lowered look. Or having to worry even more about every bump and going up speed bumps sideways.

18x10" square or 18x11" rears would be great!

20x10s and 285/35/20 PSS's for auto x if you do that. square setup and can rotate, Probably best setup for these cars for the track or canyon carving, next up 20x10.5's and 295 PSS's but offsets must be dead on and they will stickout per a friend who has tried most combos and wins all the time

My ideal is the widest and lightest you can fit over the brakes and still rotate without spacers that tuck nicely under the fender lip on full compression front and back.

I think that might be 275's on a normal tire on a 9, maybe a 10 and 285's...not a skinny freak like Invos.

Michelin has PSS's in a 275/35/20 for the 9" rim. I was going to do that with with the 285 on a 20x10 for the rear till going 10's all around

Yeah, Invos narrow and not enough tread on the ground size for size, along with a to soft of a sidewall

Square 20x9s will be my next setup. Prefer the ability to rotate all 4 on a daily driver.
