Haven't gotten my summer wheels/tires yet, but here it is on the winder set - 19x8.5 ET35 without spacers (so they sit a bit far inward).

Thanks for the info, saving. I've always been happy with Continental's. I've had various Sport Contacts on other cars and DW on my last car. I think they perform well and are a good value. The times I've looked at them compared to to other brands on the Tire Rack chart they've always been the lightest too.

Using a spacer to offset a wheel further than stock will have negative consequences... both short and long term.
Can you explain why its negative? I have 20mm spacers on all four rims and the car performs just as the day I bought it. Don't notice anything negative with the ride or how the rims are sitting..

In the immediate category, you just changed how the wheels transfer forces into the suspension... effectively messing up the factory suspension geometry setup. You probably won't notice anything while driving around town, but if you're in tune with your car (and cars in general) you'll feel it when pushing it past 8/10th.

Long term you're putting more stress on the hub bearings, wheel studs and other suspension components. Depending on how everything is designed it might shorten the life of some of those components.

If you're mostly cruising around and the roads are nice and smooth where you live, it might not actually matter that much... but if you're hooning your Camaro daily in the northeast, bushings and bearings will become a regular maintenance item.

And now with tires and the rest. Very happy with the weights at this size and still under factory weights for sure!
