Can I use stock tires on 6th gen spilt spoke wheels?

I'm look to buy a set of the 2016 splits spoke wheels to put on my 2011 SS. I saw in another thread that I will need a 3mm spacer to clear the brembos. But aside from that I'm wondering if I can use my stock tires 245/45 and 275/40 with the 2016 wheels. Since the stock tires on the 2016 are 245/40 and 275/35.

Would I run into issues using my stock tires instead?

Thanks

I don't know anything about how those rims clear the Brembo's on a 2011, although you seem to know it already, but for the tire sizes there should be no issue.

In fact, with the same radius (20") and width (245 and 275) you would need the same rim size.

Thanks, apparently the just hit the brembos without the spacers. Im more concerned with the height of the tire than the width, As I dont really like the stance of the thinner profile tires used on the 2016.

These are the wheel specs of both wheels that i found in the other 6th gen wheel thread

2016+ 20" wheel specs
Front Wheel 20x8.5
Front Tire SizeP245/40ZR20
Rear Wheel 20x9.5
Rear Tire SizeP275/35ZR20
~27.7"

2010-2015 2-" wheel specs (except 1LE,ZL1 and Z28 of course)
Front Wheel 20x8.5
Front Tire SizeP245/45ZR20
Rear Wheel 20x9.5
Rear Tire SizeP275/40ZR20
~28.7"

Not sure how accurate it is but it's what I've found so far...

The tire and rim size for the 2016 SS is accurate, I have a 2016 and I can confirm the data you posted.

As I wrote before, for tire fitting purposes the only information you need is the following:
Front Wheel 20x8.5
Rear Wheel 20x9.5
All rims with the same radius and channel width are supposed to have the same standard measures on the tire side.
