2LT/RS Tire/wheel Question

My dealer and I are still a little confused. I know the 2LT comes with the 19" tire wheel package (tires/wheels being the same size). But with the RS option you get the 20" wheels and tires.

Are they the same size as the SS (245 in front and 275 in the rear)? GM's literature on this is vauge.

I believe the RS gives you the exact same tires/wheels as the SS but need a warm fuzzy.

Looks like we're the only one's here???? Think i says they moved the thread. I am not happy about the "summer" tires.
I once ask a boss, "Do you have to have a degree to be stupid"?

I'm gonna take a stab at this and answer my own question since no one else offered up any help.

I think the 2LT with the RS options gets the same size TIRES/WHEELS as the SS. Summer tires included. I would have preferred am All Season tire, but owning a 2006 vette which I drive 11 months out of the year I'll be able to deal with inclement weather on these tires, just slow down and go easy on the gas and allow plenty of space around you.

Aren't all the wheel combos 245's??
I'm suprised at the height of the tires. I was looking at pictures of the 20's and i see they are 45 series, and the tire is fairly tall. The profile doesn't look real low. Usually on a wheel that size you'd have a 30 or 35 .

That's what I'm trying to confirm, 245's all the way around on 20" wheels or does the RS 20" wheel option get us the 245's in the front and 275's in the rear like the SS???

I just don't know why this question is so difficult to answer. A FWIT's I looked at all the documentation Cheby released and they don't say what size tires are included with the RS package.

From what I have read, the RS package would get you the same wheels and tires as the SS.
