haha... no room in the garage/driveway for a winter beater!.... winter wheels will likely be 18's, but if I can do 17's, all the better (less expensive, and more sidewall to absorb bumps/potholes, etc)

Glad to help,

Aren't you losing the ride when you go as low as 30's? Or is there not a big difference between the 30-35 profile tires?

30 is not a size, it is a percentage. The number means nothing unless you know the width of the tire.

Example,
315/25-22

Translation:
315 millimeters wide
Sidewall thickness is 25% of the width (315mm x 0.25 = 78.75 mm = 3.1 inches)
22 inch wheel size

Hey Nine Ball,

Im looking to put 21x9 (front) and 21x11 (rear) on my new Camaro. I noticed that you listed 265/35-21 and 315/30-21 sizes available with respective 28.3 and 28.4 heights. What tire manufacturers do you recommend I go with and what would be my costs for these tires?

Thanks, Rich Rauh

Will they rub?

If I go with a slightly wider 19" wheel it will fit when driving straight... but will it rub when turning the wheel? Say instead of the 245/50R19 I go with 265/45R19 will they rub when turning? Basically, I just want to know how deep the wheel well is.

for the 275/40-20, would a 10.0 wheel be acceptable?
