I'm also with the 10" width all around, making a 11" fit up front will take some work.

Thanks for the information. I (mistakenly) thought the 1LE came lowered from the factory compared to a stock SS.

Square for handling balance. My car drives beautifully. I only rotate tires left to right if I see a wear pattern. I put my used fronts in the rear and throw out the rears when theyre tired. It works the best for all around performance and wet weather driving, do not listen to the tire tards that reccomend the new tires in the back. My rears get heat cycled and don't hook up as well as the fresh tires, there would be no benefit in putting them up front unless I wanted to increase my braking distance.

I guess we are not really helpful cause votes are split in half
I personally prefer staggered look and you can still rotate left to right.

Yes, the votes are surprisingly right down the middle haha.

If I didn't plan on getting into a Z/28 in the near future then I'd buy 2 10" OEM ZL1 Wheels for a true square setup, but with a Z/28 knocking on my door, I'm thinking that I'd rather save that money for now and buy a true square in OEM ZL1/1LE 19's for the Z.

To save a little today so I can spend it tomorrow, I'll do staggered. But I think that squared is better.

I was surprised by how well my original P Zero front tires held up with no rotation. No cupping and almost no feathering until I replaced them due to overall tread wear. I could have "rotated" them side to side but I never did.

And the rears looked even more evenly worn.

Thinking back on other experiences, the worst cupping I ever saw was on an old Blazer 4x4 with two solid axles. Terrible suspension geometry for highway driving, but absolutely the best for rock crawling. And of course, FWD cars wear the fronts way faster because those do the pulling and the steering.

So I wouldn't give a lot of priority to a square setup on a Camaro. BTW, my current setup has directional and staggered tires so no side to side is possible.
