ZL1 Stock Tires and Cold Weather Storage

Thinking seriously again about getting a ZL1.

However, there's a GM service bulletin on the stock ZL1
tires about cracking under 30º F ambient temperature. I
have an unheated garage and winter here regularly hits
minus temperatures.

I can score some 18" Heritage rims and tires for cheap.
Will they fit on a ZL1 so I can just store it in the winter? I'd
bring the stock tires indoors.

Or where can I get a set of cheap-a** wheels and tires that will fit just for storage?

Thanks for your help!!!

You will need SS wheels and tires...the steelies will not clear the brakes or the sways.
Cars and women are both going to give you problems...but you can pay somebody else to fix your car!

I'm surprised to hear this about the Goodyear tires because they are a really soft tire. My thought is that cracking would happen with a harder compound tire. I'll admit I've not searched but has anyone on the forum had this issue?

Either way, this would not stop me from getting a ZL1.
