No offense, but you seem to be more upset than the people whom you are ridiculing?

I would think that the SS would get the run flats like the Corvette. That mush HP and Speed is deadly with a blowout and the Runflats are safer tires for sports cars. Now the v6 I think would end up with plain tires. I know the 18's are Bf goodrich traction TA and they are not run flat. Now GM like to put the same tires on similar vehicles and I am just a bit of hope that they wont order but one type for the 20's. Maybe Fbodfather has some insight on this...hint hint and just because others want to know -

V6 true duals or y-pipe?

or :( 1 in 2 out muffler

Scotsman I'm just wondering why you think the fascia is a V6? I'm not aware of any V6's that will have the mail slot, unless I'm totally missing something. No flames intended just wondering.

To the best of my knowledge the P-Zero's the SS comes with aren't run flats.

Several of the pre-pro Camaro V6 models had the mail slot. Like the one all the auto mags tested recently.

No problem, I actually don't know enough about the differences between the V6 and RS front fascia to tell you what the one pictured in this thread is though.

This is a moot point to discuss now, now that we know it's indeed a V8. I took a look at some other pics and realized that's a full on SS and NOT a V6. Of course no one here let me come up for air because that's something we just do not do on the internet, especially with as much ego and testosterone floating around on here.

It's not that we didn't let you come up for air, it's just that you kept ripping on everyone that said you were incorrect - before looking at what we were saying. It's over and done with.

Sry to say it, but you may be wrong. Take a look at the top 4:

I may be wrong though.

EDIT: Just did some more research. According to the spec manual, the rear SS tires are P275/40ZR20, which ARE runflats. However, the fronts are P245/45ZR20, which are not on the runflat list.

Either way, GM said that the Camaro will not receive run flat tires in production.
