Hey guys. I've been researching for weeks and it's ridiculous the amount of conflicting information out there.

I'm currently running factory Pirellis on non-factory rims. My wheels are Foose Speed 20x8.5 front, 20x10 rear. Factory is 20x8 and 20x9. The Pirellis look okay on the rims without much noticeable stretch, but they are also starting to look like they'll need replacing soon after 22,000 miles.

According to the tire sizes chart, factory tires are 28.7 total height. If I wanted to stay with that but still go up in width, I'd need 275/40-20 front and 315/35-20 rear. I'm reading about half-and-half yes-no on whether these sizes will be okay for 8.5 and 10 inch wheels.

The second option is 28.4" total height in sizes of 265/40-20 and 305/35-20, which would probably be a better fit for these wheels, but I think either option would likely be okay.

So now I have these two sets of staggered tire sizes to choose from. There are a few, according to TireRack, that will work for the first option, but none for the second. I would have to buy two separate kinds of tires for the front and rear if I went with the second, "more safe" option, and that's not something I really want to do. The second option will also throw my spedo off. AARGH!!!

So what do you guys think? Would it really be so terrible running 275/315 on 8.5/10" tires? I'm looking at the Continental DWS, since they seem highly recommended and they fit my size requirements.

Thanks!

edit - This site offers wheel and tire combinations (for Nitto and Toyo) in the 275,315 sizes for the Foose rims:

Man, I am dying over this. I have a 2010 2SS with the upgraded 21 inch wheels. I'm looking at 2k to replace the tires.

Any suggestions, other than buy a set of 20 inch wheels?

You can have different size in front and back. A .25" is not going to be noticed. But keep in mind if you go lower or higher the speedometer may not reflect accurately. I'm looking in on 22's and its impossible to be perfect front and back. You don't want a tire that won't fit the width and be stretched. So just keep it within a range. I'm stepping up to a 29" over all. Another thing to keep in mind. If the tire is recommended for a 9" and you put it on a 8.5" then you just raised th diameter. So it could go from 28.4 to 28.7".

Good to know. Guess I should have been more careful with my wheel selection, seeing the available tire sizes. Oh well. I'll make it work. Thanks!

edit - And if it comes down to it, I can always just burn a little rubber off to compensate for the increased diameter.

I have 22's (265/30 x4) - the ride is just fine to me. No complaints - get road hazard warranty on the tires, curbs eat the side walls for breakfast! LOL

TSW Tremblat

Recently purchased 19x9.5 TSW Tremblant Rims for the rear of my Camaro, Any opinions on tire size?
Looking for something low profile but want to fill the wheel well gap.

Anyone have an opinion?

Recommended Tire Size 2010 Camaro HELP!!

I need help please.
I'm confused, I want to make sure I get the right size.
I have a 2010 Camaro, a few weeks ago I purchased some wheels from a little tire shop.
The wheels are 20" Chevy Camaro Factory Wheels but I have no idea what year car they came off of.
Sooo, Im wondering... besides calling the guy I bought them from, is there a way to find out what year they are?? I assume the tire size I need depends on the originality of the wheels, right?
Any input is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance guys.

new wheels ,,, tires????

I have new wheels the Mickey thompson SC-5 ESS ,,,Front 20x9 ,bolt 5x120mm ,BS 5.87",ET:+22mm,,, which im going to put my rear old tires that are in good shape on the front ,they are Perlli 275/40-20=28.7" tall.

Rear wheels 20x10.5, bolt 5x120mm,BS.7.09,ET:+34mm,,which Im thinking of putting ether the perlli 305/35-20=28.4" tall or the 315/35-20=28.7" tall.

Would the 305/35-20 be to small of a diameter that would throw my speedo off,,could you see the size difference,, looking at it?? The 305/35 are more readily available// The 315/35 would have to be backorder.

Do any of you see an unseen, to me problem? Before I spend another $1000.

Looking at buying a set of new Hurst Stunner wheels for my 2010 2SS i want to run the 20x9s with 275 all around but i can t seem to find the off set for the 20x9 Stunners which is a front fitment dont want them tucked to far inside the rear wheel well. Any help with find the offsets will be appreciated. I have sent hurst wheels a email and no response and tire rack just keeps telling me i cant run 275 in the front unless i roll the fender well lips or modify it some how. the ZL1 runs a 285 20 in the front so i dont see a issue with it.

Pretty much the same rules apply as what this thread is meant for.

Front stock 245/45/20, if you went with a wider front like 265/45/20 how much will this wider front tire effect driving and handling? Anyone?
I currently run 255/40/20 front and 295/35/20 rear Nitto Invos, 255 in the front isn't much different than the stock 245. Planning on rear Michelin SS 295/35/20 in the near future.

I am going to buy the silver ZL1 rim replicas, and want to know what width and offset to buy to get a square setup that can be rotated.

at least 285's, 20 inch
