Insurance adjuster overwrote my loss for whatever reason so I've got a few bucks to spare. Now here is the $1,000,000.00 question that I need to know within a day or so. Being my stock wheels were 20x8 and 20x9, I am wanting to replace my polished aluminum wheels while it's down anyway with the black ZL1 wheels which I understand are 20x10 front and 20x11 rear. Do I need to tire shop or can the stock size SS tires I was running be used with the wider ZL1 wheels?

My apologies if this is the wrong place for this question but I haven't had much time to look around here yet. Looking forward to learning some great info here at Camaro5!

Figures. Gonna lose a bet over this. Don't know if I'm gonna have enough cash left over for 4 new tires....was hoping to just need two. Maybe more feasible to stick with an aftermarket black wheel in the 20x8 and 20x9, huh? What do u think? Wanted to get a little more aggressive kind of look.

Ive bought 2 sets of wheels from Nineball and I just go by his charts for tire sizes. I would get what u want and not settle for something ok. a 11" wheels with a 315 will look mean.

Yes it would for sure. Just for sure wanna replace the polished stock wheels with a black. My SS is the dark charcoal on blk leather. Blk wheels will look 10X better. And I see nineball is only about an hour away from me here near Houston, but man I wasn't expecting those prices....very top end I guess. I thought I was shopping for 350-500 a wheel. Not 1200 a wheel...lol

Looking at getting 275/35/20 and 295/35/20 Nitto Invo's and according to a tire size calculator there will be a 2% difference between the front an rear diameters. So, will this be enough of a difference to throw an ABS code? Thanks!

Are all these combinations good to go without any rubbing issues?

Question guys I checked out the first page, I wanna go with some nittos when I get my forgestar cf5V wheels. Some of you may know they only come in 19", I think I wanna do 19x9 all the way around. I'd ideally like the nitto NT05 tires. Here are the sizes listed on their website. I don't want a super ruber band thin tire, something that can be comfortable on the street and perform well at autoX. Thanks guys!

WOw! great details. I am running 305/30/22 on the back and 265/30/22 on front.

If you go to a 265/35/22, they will not fit, they will hit the top of strut. The diameter on the tires is 29.3 which is the max, but it will hit and wear out the inside tread

Thanks for the guide! I just picked up a OEM set of ZL1 rims and just need to ask, according to the chart 315's are the ones I should run to keep the same height. Is this correct and will they rub? 2013LT1. The 305's would affect the computer settings?

right on will do next time thanks

First of all, great thread. I am in the process of purchasing new wheels for my 2010 SS. The car is lowered via coil-overs and can easily be adjusted for proper ride height. The car is used for autocross events 95% of the time and I want to go with 20x11 all around or 20x10.5 in front and 20x11 in the rear so I can put 305's in the front and 315's in the rear. Does anyone have either of the front and rear combinations on their car. My main concerns are getting the proper offsets and clearing the Phadt coil-overs in the front with their weird inverted design. The current 10x9.5 wheels I run up front barely clear the coil-overs, I don't remember the offset but I know it's the bare minimum. I will update this post once I get the wheels and tires.

305/35-20 = 28.4" tall, 10.0-10.5 wheel
315/35-20 = 28.7" tall, 10.5-11.0 wheel

Running 18's on your SS....

Word of warning to those that want to run 18" on their SS. In order for me to run 18's on my SS, I had to shave a little of the rear calipers and also use spacers to clear them. The clearance is about a sheet of paper. The front's clear thanks to the rotors being slightly smaller up front, go figure. You may be able to find some brands that will clear so make sure that you test fit the wheel prior to mounting or purchasing the wheels. I have read that Bogart makes a 17" that will fit the rear, must be a lot different on the inside diameter than my cheap VOX wheels. The Bogarts are very pricey bu gear if you are going to drag race. Hope this helps!

I have the same question...also would the rear 275's be OK on a 10'' wide wheel?

My tires are in great shape, I'd hate to have to ditch them prematurely if/when I get new wheels.

I have a question about offset. I want to go to 20x9 front and 20x10rear on my 11 ss/rs vert. Do the factory offsets have to be increased or decreased with a wider wheel? Cant seem to find a wheel I like with 35mm front and 40mm rear offsets. If I understand correctly, offset will determine the amount of wheel that protrudes from the wheel well, correct?
