So I can feel that beating coming, but I have to ask as I feel like I've read thread after thread yet I haven't been able to find a definitive answer. Whats the widest tires one can run on the C6 Z06 FRONT & BACK (using the stock C6 Z06 rims) without getting the dreaded "Engine Drag Control Active" on the dash

If I'm not mistaken the rears would be 345/30/19, but I'm not 100% on the fronts. Should I just stick with the factory size upfront or can/should I go wider or slightly taller for some sort of compensation? <- I'm a true tire Newb so any help is greatly appreciated

First, I doubt you're gonna take a beating. I've found that 99% of the posts here are sincere and helpful.
Secondly, maybe create a post which simply asks: WHAT SIZE FRONT DO YOU CURRENTLY HAVE? or something like that.
We run 345/30/19 on the rear but keep the factory 275/35/18's up front.
Good set of AA-rated tires (I'm upgrading to the Nitto NT555 Extreme for the front via Site Sponsor: http://www.discounttiredirect.com/direct/findTireDetail.do?pc=40158&counter=1&ar=35&rd=18&sw=false&cs=275) should suffice.

To answer your prospective post:
We run the factory 275/35's up front, hence no issues.
We run 345/30/19s out back, NO ISSUES.
