That's because they look so good. lol


If my OE rims were 11" in the rear I would probably keep them for awhile and go with a 305 or 315. From a visual prospective I just think a 275 in the rear is not wide enough, and I don't think I can safely go any wider than a 285 on the OE 9.5" rim.

To be fair, 1LE wheels are the probably the best looking OEM set on a Camaro.

Yup. The wheel designer somehow hit a magic unicorn spot with this design, plus it ages perfectly and nothing comes close even after several years. I tried.

For the record, I'm definitely *not* saying nothing else looks good, there are several worthy competitors, it's just that the SS 1LE wheels look astoundingly good and fit the body design extremely well.

100% agree.

Hell, I tried to find something very similar to put on my 911S!

Does anyone know if the rear drivers side wiring harness still needs to be relocated on the 2024's?


I think I'm sold on the 315/30/20's and the 275/35/20's. I wish they made the 1LE replica rims in 9.5" and 10.5", I like the look of a tire on the more narrow rim within its safe range.

You should be able to feel it through the liner iirc.

I know the general area to look for it, if GM has relocated it from previous years I'm guessing there won't be a little bump there?

Yup, matte/satin/unpainted (whatever they are considered) side skirts and splitter. I like the look of it rather than any gloss. My previous LT1 (which was stolen), I had glossy zl1 style skirts on it along with black glossy door handles. I added glossy zl1 style wheels on it too, but after all of it I really didn't like the gloss look. This car, I went with the matte look, I think it looks much better.

I think it's just by design with the wheel poke because the 285s don't really overhang the wheel, just slightly. I think 275's would be fine too.
I went with Bridgestone Potenza Sport, Tirerack has "old" tires on sale which I snagged up for under $800

Have any SS/LT1 owners noticed a minor loss of straight line acceleration when switching to wider/heavier tire/rim combos? Assuming similar height tires as factory spec, the added MOI of heavier wheels has to have some affect on performance. On the other hand, maybe a wider 305 or 315 can hook on the street and foster faster acceleration due to traction control cutting power to a spinning 245 or 275.

I went from stock SS wheel/tires to 1LE spec MRR017s and feel I gained a LOT of traction vs the factory run flat 275s..

Do you feel the car would be quicker in the 1/4 mile now ?


Yes better traction, but also more rotational mass eating up power. And of course the added rotational mass of the wider/heavier fronts can only hinder straight-line acceleration. On paper the 1LE spec has to be slower in the 1/4 unless better traction can mitigate the higher MOI of all four wheels. At SS power levels, I don't see how a 1LE spec could win in a roll race as well.


Don't get me wrong, I'm putting 315's on the back of my car, I don't care if it costs me a bit of acceleration or not, they look awesome ! lol.

That is beyond my experience level, but before when I used to spin, I now hook, so to me, that makes it much faster... I have 305/30s out back, when it is time to replace, I'm going 275/35 (front) & 315/30 (back)... Love the wide look!

That's the same spec I'm about to order...275/35/20 and 315/30/20. I'm going with Atturo AZ850's, they are nearly identical in height to each other, and with factory spec tires. Every time I'm behind a 1LE with 305's, or a Wide Body Scat with 315's, I know the 275's have to go. lol

I have the exact same tires, I bought them from a friend VERY lightly used (he went with street drag radials), for the price they can not be beat! I currently have 285/30 & 305/30 but when it comes time to replace going with 275/35 & 315/30 as like you said, they are nearly identical to the SS OEM diameters...
