Summer Tire Dilemma

I bought a 2013 ZL1 back in May of this year and it was from Florida. The previous owner installed Nitto 555 G2 tires which is apparently a summer tire. I live in PA and unfortunately the car will not be garaged over the winter, there is a lot of tread left on them and I would like to see them last for at least another couple of years.

So now I'm looking for a cheap set of tires I can swap out for the winter. I did find someone local who has rims and tires off their c7 vette but there 18" and 19" rims. Does anyone know if they will fit a ZL1?

Thanks.

There are usually a lot of folks selling winter tire set ups, I would just find one and go pick it up.

When I bought my set for my 2012 SS I drove up to NY, but I see a lot of them for sale in NJ too.

Here's a complete set in VA if you're willing to do the drive: https://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=560622

Thanks for the lead. I went way over budget on this car and was hoping to get something cheaper. I'm at the point where I'm okay if the car has to sit from December through March I just need something for it to sit on. Being realistic I may have to just suck it up and put out the money.

Always willing to help a neighbor out

Just keep looking, they pop up a lot. I snagged my setup for $500. (which is why I drove 5 hrs each way)

You still have a few months before we hit 40 degree averages, which is when I swap over to my winter set.
