Another tire post 335/25/20

Well I found some GOODYEAR - EAGLE F1 SUPERCAR 3R here in Canada 335/25/20
Has anyone tried this size of tire yet? Will it work
I want these for the rear of my zl1 as I do not mind the stock ones.
Any help would be appreciated

You'd need a 12"/12.5"/13" rear wheel...That's a Corvette tire. Wrapping that on an 11" rear wheel (that you have now) would be impossible I would think, especially with the super short and stiff sidewall on those 335/25. Also, without punching it into the tire calculator, I'm going to guess the sizing is about 2-3% different from a 305/30 in height which may give you some grief when it comes to the nannies as well as incorrect speedo readings...

In short, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Run stock/close to stock tire sizes = no issues.

I've run a 335 on a 10.5" wheel. There were no issues getting the two to work together. I won't say it's optimal, but it is possible and no big deal. The shoulders of the tire will roll inward, toward the center of the wheel, though, so if that's not a look you'll like, this is not the way to go. Also - I found that center of the tread tended to wear a little faster, so I'd have to run a little lower air pressure in the tires. No biggie, but not optimized for sure.

Yeah the last guy I knew that put a 335 on an 11" wore the crap out of the center and the shoulders of the tire stuck out something awful. Is it really gaining anything other than bragging rights of running a 335? I don't think so...

I got a little better traction, but it wasn't near the gain from a DR. It's really more for looks than an actual gain, IMO.

I love the look of a super wide tire but not at the expense of possible damage. If I could I would go with a 325/30/20 on an 11-11.5” rim. The sport cup 2 in that size is about $350 and it would look sick. Just don’t know if that’ll fit without hitting the fender?

Thanks guys
I have found this tire I speak of for 420.xx Canadian so like 300 usd j/k
I was looking for more grip so wider foot print more traction it’s only 1” per tire
As far as calculating height I think it’s .69” shorter

Just make sure that your front height is about the same or a bit smaller or it will look weird.
