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.

Thanks, Rich Rauh
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

Should be fine ~ even the stock V6 wheels are enormous, I doubt you'd feel a difference.

Hard to tell from the pictures but looks like he put a little bit wider than stock...if anything it'll help a little with curves and such. Had to get wider tires for my Trailblazer cuz they didn't have the standard size and I felt a lot better handling on it. Hope this helps!

I agree. I'm losing mine. As soon as I get my others sold. Nine Ball is my guy.

FWIW, Michelin now offers their Pilot Sport PS2 in 305/30/21! Previously, I hadn't been able to find a 21" tire wider than a 295...

Would it be possible to put 20x10 on all fours? Or only on rears?

There was a guy who did 20x10+ on all 4 corners here in LA, I remember him getting his coilovers installed and wheels mounted at Haddad Motorsports here in LA... I believe he ran 295's all around, but they poked a little in the front.

He posted pics in one of the threads here (I believe this one), good hunting!
