Driving like a normal person with an aggressive street alignment you should see 20K The ZL1 owners will be looking at similar tire life.
Well I guess my alignment was all screwed up cause my rear Pirellis (no burn outs) just literally disentigrated before my eyes. It's good now, but tires aren't cheap. I'm actually diggin' the way my 18" OEM setup feels. No swimming in the lanes.

but anywho..... back to Randy buying (what was it?) Bridgestone something or other and you not being offended whatsoever.

I guess I'm a looks first guy after all.

It may be down to the L28 set- up or the staggered Vossens.

And that's a lot of air!! What's the wheel gap on that? Would we still measure from the fender lip to the bottom of the wheel? Or do you measure to the ground?

I feel for you Randy after your Storkilinni wheel mess (you too John)

Man...almost three pages since you posted you were getting rid of your sweet Savinis.

I definitely wouldn't recommend going to a taller tire to fill the well. It throws off your speedometer, odometer and I've heard can even mess with things like traction control.

Man up and just buy some coilovers.

Russ, Russ, Russ............ lmao

I have Pedders Supercar in back and XAs in front.

The taller tires would be OEM tire diameters. Then smaller from there.

No...just had a Chris moment. I'm all better now.

And technically my car now thinks it's a manual.

Pete actually refused to install my Pedders Justice package with the 22s. The only way I convinced him was by telling him I'd be running 16s at the track.

Stock Tires
245/45-20 = 28.7" Tall
275/40-20 = 28.7" Tall

ZL1
285/35-20 = 27.9" Tall
305/35-20 = 28.4" Tall

My Savinis

265/30-22 = 28.3" Tall
315/25-22 = 28.2" Tall

L28 (Lingenfelter)
305/35-20 = 28.4" Tall (all 4 wheels)

Here is the L28 car that I'd be cloning the wheels of.
