Drag pack for 2019 ZL1

Has anyone put wheels and tires all the way around on their 19 ZL1? Having quite the time getting specs and need to figure this out. I currently have a 20inch wheel with MT Et Street SS on the rear. Racing street points here soon once this mess goes away so want to be right when it starts. Any help is much appreciated....would even accept a rear tire and wheel option at this time.

I believe you can run a 18x5 front and 17x10 rear and run a 305/45/17 drag radial or 28" slick.

I have a 17x10.5 rear with a +32 offset. Would really prefer around a +38 offset, but it works with the shorter tire I'm currently running.

Thanks for the replies. That's a start for sure....it ran a 7.09 in the 1/8 last time I was out a few weekends ago but now everything is halted here locally. I'm wondering if the lighter wheels will help some....

The lighter wheels will help. The average stock wheel and tire will be over 60 lbs each. You'll save the most on the fronts as the drag radials are fairly heavy but the wheels will be lighter unless you choose a bead lock for the rear. I run a 17x10.5 Race Star rear which are not bead locks with 305 45 17 MT and use a Permatex hightac sealant to keep them from spinning on the wheel and they will if you don't seal them.

Just an cold air intake and Corsa exhaust. I was running a Copo at the Loose Rocker so held a few numbers to run him out the back but he went red so ran it out. .

I ordered some last night...17x10's and 18x5's on front with 305 45 17 MT Et Street SS on back and 28x6x18 for fronts. At least now I will be matched around.

Ok heads up for ZL1 owners. The VMS wheels will not fit a 2019. They are within a business card distance of the brake caliper which to me seems tight?? I dont like them being that close to my calipers so now I guess I'll return them to where they came from.
