A 325 would probably fit better on an 11" rim.

I know this might be a stupid question. But I have a 2014 2LS with the stock BFGoodrich tires, that I was planing on taking it the drag strip. Could I use the stock tires if I'm only going every now and then ? or would I need to invest in summer/racing tires ??

You can race on those stock BFGs. An all season or snow tire won't hook as good as a summer tire but unless your car is really all about drag racing that might not matter.

I was just looking to take the car to the track every now and then for fun. Would something like Pirelli P zero's make a big difference over all seasons

Hi. I'm looking to buy a pair of C6 Z06 wheels (Factory Reproductions Style 15) and NT05R 305/45/18 tires. Are the specs below correct for my 2010 Camaro SS? From what I've researched here they seem to be. Are my stock Camaro lug nuts going to work with these Z06 wheels or do I need new ones? Thanks!

Wheel Size: 18x9.5
Bolt Pattern: 5x120.7mm (5x4.75")
Backspace : 6.875"
Offset: +40mm
Finish: BLACK

I actually have some Pirelli snow tires that is very good in rain and hooks better than stock by a long shot but I won't take them over 100mph.

I have been over this thread multiple times I need to clarify something, Weld 17" wheels will NOT direct fit a 13 ZL1? I would need to change the LCA's, correct? Does anyone run them stock wit no alterations? Thanks in advance!

17" welds do not fit a SS or ZL1 without notching the LCA's or BMR LCA's are required.

Anyone running a 325 with the RTS's 18x10.5? or should I go with a 17x10.5? Car will be lowered 1".

I thought you could run them on an ss..? I put the rim on my car with it jacked up no weight on the suspension. I haven't gotten tires mounted yet to put the weight on it. Are the control arms different on the 15's?
