    What is the widest tire you can put on the stock rims?

    How much difference in performance will that extra 1/2" provide. I am talking about tires here ladies keep your minds out of the gutters

    What are you trying to achieve? Daily driver, handling, 1/4 mile. If all the above but no winter I'd go for the optional 3 season tires and be done.

    Mine came with the summer tires as I got sick of waiting and found a dealer who had one for a great price, $1K over MSRP, so I had no choice what tires to get. Anyway I was just wondering how much better bigger tires would perform on daily driving. Would getting 10" make a big difference or the 3 season tires vs. the summer tires or do I just keep the summer tires. Tires is one of many things I do not know much about. I just want to be able to get the best start of the line as possible for daily driving. Thanks for your help

    Keep what you have in my opinion if you need to drive all year round if i read it right that you have the 4 season tires. If you don't drive all year then you can get 3 season but they ain't cheap. Wait till the factory ones wear out.

    Not much. The car would have been awesome with a staggered setup like the ZL1s. Probably was cost prohibitive to get them to fit back there.

    ColdHeartid has it figured out for us, check this thread. Thanks to him again, he is the first I have seen do 11" wheels with 315/35's. It looks good to me!
