Exclamation Oversized tire on factory wheel?

Hey all,

I bought some 315/35/ZR20's for my factory SS wheels. I put them on yesterday and when I'm driving it feels like the car is drifting from side to side -- DEFINITELY not safe. This is probably a dumb question, but is this tire too big for my wheel? I really want the Invos because they worked great on my last ride, but I'm convinced that I bought the wrong size..

If I did buy the wrong size, what size should I buy for my factory wheels (I only changed the back tires, kept the stock fronts)

Yes, those tires are too big for the stock wheels.

Here's the recommended sizes. Stock wheels are 9'' wide.

Recommended 20" tires for 2010 Camaro
245/45-20 = 28.7" tall, 8.0-8.5 wheel
255/45-20 = 29.0" tall, 8.0-8.5 wheel
265/40-20 = 28.4" tall, 8.5-9.0 wheel
275/40-20 = 28.7" tall, 9.0-9.5 wheel
285/40-20 = 28.9" tall, 9.0-10.0 wheel
295/35-20 = 28.1" tall, 9.5-10.5 wheel
305/35-20 = 28.4" tall, 10.0-10.5 wheel
315/35-20 = 28.7" tall, 10.5-11.0 wheel

Absolutly too much tire for a 9" rim. The 315 tire needs a 10.5 to 11" rim. Probably should have looked at that first.
