I found a good deal on some Camaro SS wheels Staggared and they are going off to get slight repair and powdercoated. So now I am looking at tires. I have done a lot of measuring and even put some spacers on to get a good idea of what I want but my measurements are a bit conflicting with some of what I am reading, but most of what I am reading is for the G8 which seems to be running a size shorter tire then we are on the PPVs. Here are my thoughts.
Front to run a 245x40x20 with 35mm offset. The G8s seem to be running 245x35
Rear to run 275x35x20 with a 40mm offset. The G8s seem to be running 275x30

Granted it looks like the size I am thinking about is slightly taller but only by .15 Inch. The G8 size is .4 Inches shorter.
Has anyone had any experience or opinions on running the 275x35x20 in the rear?

Check out Scott Walker's car with Camaro 20's, lowered with coil-overs.

I know the fronts are 255 and rears are 275, just don't recall if it's 40F/35R or 35F/30R

The rear fenders did require rolling.
