No such tire. The c6/Z06 will sport a 325/30-19 but that tire is not out yet either. That's the one I'm waiting for.

I though so too, so how wide can you go on the 19s, I saw something on 355s, or were those 18s? what the vipers? 345/30-19?

You can go pretty wide on 19's but the tires don't exist yet. One of the reasons I went with 19x11's is because I spoke with someone that consulted with GM on the C6Z's tire sizes. There are actually more options for wider skins with 18's but that's changing.

For wide 19" wheels, you can get the Pirelli 355/25 19 or the Michelin 345/30 19. The latter is what I'm using and is what LPE uses on their cars.

Here are pics of 19x12s with a 345/30 19 on my car - pic1 pic2

Funny you should mention...I've heard a lot of negative comments about the Pirelli's but I've had great experience with them. I wore out my factory F1's in 12k miles and I now have 12k on my Pirelli's and it looks like they still have about 3-4k miles left on them even with some track time on them. They're actually very similar in construction and compound to the F1's

Wayne, what offset are you running on those wheels and how much room remains between the inside of the tire and the wheel tub?

Inquiring mind, wants to know. ;)

John at CCW wheel says that more sizes are in the pipeline for the 19" rims to fit our Z06's without tubbing. Such as 325/30/19 etc. Call John for more details. John has already sold a few set of tires in 325/30/19. :cheers:

There is very little room in there, Norm. As for offset, I don't know. I ordered through a friend's company and HRE knows the correct offsets for these sizes on C5s.

That was me, and they are working awesome. I'm not going to get into the whole argument/discussion again about the 355 Pirelli's vs the 345 Pilot Sports, some people are just convinced otherwise ;) . . . . but the 355's have a better aspect ratio and diameter to stock then do the 345's. Yes, they will BOTH work, and in the end it is one's preference, but the 355's have almost the same stock diameter, and the rubber is much softer for better traction. You will need 19x12 wheels for either. Good luck. :cheers:
