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?

Yes, a 10" wheel will work with a 275 tire. It just isn't a "recommended" size combo, by just barely. The widths above are not rules, just suggestions based on aesthetic sidewall reasons and ease of mounting.

I don't want to answer for Tony, but I have not been able to track down a tire wider than the 295/35/21. This is an OEM size for some Audi model and is available from at least Pirelli and Michelin...there may be other manufacturers. I think 21" is the ideal wheel size for the Camaro, we just need to get the tire manufacturers to bring out a 305 or 315.

Kilo is correct, tire sizes (widths) are very limited with 21s. 21" tires also cost a lot more than 20s or 22s do. Sometimes you can find a rear 21 tire, but no corresponding front tire that matches it in brand. Less headaches and frustration to stick with 20s or 22s, in my opinion. I replied to Rich's Q via PM, but thanks for the response Kilo. I don't want to be the tire expert here, I only sell forged wheels
