Z06 replica question

Ok so I purchased a set of 18x9.5 black chrome Z06 replicas and M/T ET drag radials. Heading to the track for the first time last night my dash lit up like a Xmas tree. Lost power steering traction control eta. I'm assuming it was because of the difference in rolling diameter from new rears and my 22's up front. That being said do they make a Z06 replica that would match for the fronts so I can have the same rolling diameter.
Sorry for the long winded question, just had a frustrating night at the track and new nitrous system didn't work on top of it all

18x9.5 wheels aren't the problem, I ran those for 2 years. Problem sounds like you went with a much shorter tire in back. I've never done that but I've read you need to pull some fuses then?

Thanks I know the 18x9.5 aren't the problem, they worked just fine as far as clearance goes. I was curious if they made a Z06 replica to fit the fronts and what tire size I could use in combination to equal same rolling diameter of the rears. I have MT 305 35 18 drag radials. Again I'm running dd 22's. Looking for fronts on track days.
Thanks Tom

Thanks! Did you have to cut the rollerskates off, also Would an 18x8 or 8.5 Z06 replica fit fronts any better ? If so do you know what offset?
