MICHELIN PILOT SUPER SPORT SIZES FOR 20x11 rear and 20x 9.5 front

I just had some custom Forgestar F14 rims done for my 12 Camaro SS. I have 20x11 rear and 20x 9.5 front and I want to get some MICHELIN PILOT SUPER SPORT sizes that will fit. Daily driver with some 1/4 mile runs.

Anyone have some ideas? Much appreciated!

How does it handle? What's your application? Track, drag, daily driver? Do you have a lot of sidewall? You'll have to forgive me, tire sizes to me are like trying to teach calculus to a 3rd grader. I just want something that will fit with some sidewall, but still stable and not look like low profiles.

Handles really good, I have zero complaints, and that wide 315 in the rear looks AWESOME. My car is a garage queen so its only been street driven

Watching this. I have the same wheels and want to go with the Michelins after the Pirellis are worn down enough.

You could run a 285/35 front and 315/35 rear. Or 275/35 front and the 295/35 rear.

Do you think that the 315's would fit on a stock rim widened to 11"? What is the actual width of the tire? I've been told it's 12 3/4".

If the stock wheel has been widened to 11" then yes, there are people on here that have put a 315 on a stock 9" wheel but I wouldnt advise it. I would have to look again but I believe the tread width on the michelin 315 is 12.6", its wider than any other brand that I have looked at
