Just mounted the 315/30/19 Sport Cup rear tires. Rear wheels are 11" with a 65mm offset. Still have 1/2" to 11/16" clearance to the inner wheel house.

Front wheels are 18x9.5 57mm offset with 265/35/18 Michelin PS2 that are a few years old.

Hopefully, the traction will be better with the 418 stroker now.

Russ, what a great looking car. The white is pretty unique. Tires look good, I am running Michelin Super Sport 305/30/19's on the back on the same size rim. Really pleased with them.

Enjoy your Corvette, really like it a lot.:thumbs:

Wow! I'm really impressed that 315's fit without tubbing or putting on wider fenders. The car looks good as always Russ!

Like your ‘White’ ride, and the wheels too!
But...looks like your wheel tire combo won’t be letting you lower your car any further. Even now, you would not want a pot hole to find you.
Are you going to upgrade to Big Brakes in the future? If so, would these wheels have the clearance you would need? Did you order the wheels new with that possibility in mind.

Thanks, but not lowering the rear, I have since raised the front 1/2". There are way too many speed bumps in every parking lot & gas station to clear. The rear wheels pull in as they go up into the car, and will clear the fender. Also not planning on big brakes, but there is more than enough room for C6 Z51 brakes. The wheels just have a 53 & 65mm offset choice, no mention on what BBK kits will fit.

I haven't auto x'd the car since 2005.
