widest tire without mods is a 285 as per info at indy, so that would mean that stock rims are the widest you can fit.....but with mods we can probably fit more.


dont buy the rims before the car gets here though, your only asking for trouble.

These would not fit the Camaro without some slight modification.

I dont know much about tires, etc but cant you change the offset to push the rim out more and let them fit? A slightly bulging tire with the gorgeous hips would look AMAZING!

That's what I was hoping for. Looking at the stocks in photos it looks like there's an inch or two left between the wheel face and the lip of the wheel well. I mean 305's are only like 2 inches wider than the stock tires right?

unless you are putting all 2 inches towards the outside you are going to rub....

We would definitely need to change the offsets ordered on the rims in order to make this work, that's for sure.

I'm new to Camaros, but not to adding wider meats to the rear of my cars. With offset rims, Mustangs can go from 245s stock to 315s without rubbing and without sticking out past the fender. I'm guessing (hoping) the Camaro will likely be the same.

Let me tell you from personal experience that a set of 315s on the back of any muscle car looks incredible

Yep. I'd love 315's as well. If it ends up being possible, cutting the original rims and adding a spacer to them to widen the rim is always an option. I'd love to keep the stock rims, but have them wider out back.
