Not sure whether to get the SS or ZL1 one for the 1LE.
No you MUST use spacer ON Zl1 if flat IS on front TIRE thatís what I was told when called that company in Utah.

Under product description on amazon

For use of the spare on the front of the 2016-2018 ZL1 Camaro a wheel spacer is required due to enlarged caliper size. There is no issues with fitment on the rear of the vehicle. For complete clearance a 2″ wheel spacer is recommended. This can be purchased for an additional $40 by messaging the seller Decadent directly*

And yes a spacer is needed and also the spare will always be on the front if you value your diff. So a flat will be a PIA, but the spare was peace of mind for me on long trips.

I took a look at your post and it looks like your kit is a bit different from the one that I originally posted about? It looks like a steel wheel so maybe there aluminum one will work on the bigger brakes without a spacer?

Slime says no right on the front if the can.

From their site:

Is Slime TPMS safe?

Yes, Slime makes a TPMS safe formula for cars and trucks with Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS). Look for the yellow bottle and the TPMS Safe icon. Many of Slime’s Spair kits also feature TPMS Safe Sealant. If your vehicle has TPMS, try the Smart Spair or Safety Spair from Slime.

$350 isn't really a bad price... Considering you get a premium spare tire, a pretty nice wheel, the jack, the tools, and some other odds and ends.

I doubt it check with the vendor. Really the spacer is not a big deal. You only have to limp to the next tire store. The other problem will be getting an exact replacement.

I want to change the tire out to a v/y/r speed rating for the drag strip... I would like the set for drag days now I’m worried about the spacer need... arggg. So can you drag race with the spacer? I thought no..? Just going to get Dragstar set this is becoming impossible to get front wheels...

I would not want to be drag racing with two of these type spares on the front. Although I have seen it done. GTO spare wheels I think, but with huge spacers. That bolton SS has run high 10 seconds @125 with this wheel setup. And with stock rear wheels widened to fit a wide 20" MT Street tire.

I would hold out for a sale. I saw DragStar wheels 40% off in the fall. I almost pulled the trigger. That SS above has now moved on to a real drag pack.
