You are right, we do indeed....and we are!

Our friend Andy is back again with his 5th gen SS and Z/28 flares, this time showing off our upcoming Camaro specific wheels. These feature a 67.1mm centerbore for a perfect fit and a knurled bead to prevent tire slippage under extreme forces. Stay tuned for more info as we are nearing the launch of the introductory Group Buy!

19x11" ET11 with 305/30-19 Bridgestone RE71R tires up front, and 19x11" ET43 with the same 305/30-19 RE71R's in the rear.

Check out this video highlighting our recent photo shoot with a 2018 ZL1 1LE, mounted with our 19x11" ET11 front and 19x11" ET43 rear, all wrapped in 305/30-19 Bridgestone RE71R tires.

On the following setup from your site it says direct fit:
Front: 19x10” ET20 with 285/35-19 tires
Rear: 19x11” ET43 with 325/30-19 tires

On my 2SS vert with MRC will the 325s in the back require wiring harness relocation (ARC-8 or EC-7)? The 20's do for anything over 305s so that's why I'm asking. Thanks!

I personally haven't heard anything about that, but cannot confirm to be honest.

Chip's ZL1 1LE was the perfect fit when we got our hands on the first 19x12" sample wheel. Check out the video our team whipped up to show off the 19x11" ET11 and 19x12" ET41 staggered setup, wrapped in the factory 1LE spec 305/325 Goodyear Supercar 3R tires.

Wheel Spec:
Front: Apex SM-10 18's 10.5 et22 with a 12mm spacer upfront with hub centric rings
Back: Apex SM-10 18's 10.5 et22 with hub centric ring

Tires:
Front and Back: Michelin Cup 2 Connects 295/30r18

You can also find more photos on my instagram @Destoryer_1LE
https://www.instagram.com/destroyer_1le/

I just realized I made a mistake in the video by saying 8mm hub centric spacer when its 12mm hub centric Spacer. When I say 3mm I really mean 5mm non hub centric spacer. Sorry for the mistake.

I put together a little video talking about the spec and fitment.

Hey There! I have a 2017 ZL1 that I purchased 2 months ago. It's time for wheels. I am cross-shopping a few different brands and setups, one of them is yours. I'm also specifically shopping 19's as of recent, but I've come across a problem in finding tires in the sizes I'm looking for. Above you stated there are more options for tires in 19', but I'm finding the opposite. Please guide me in where I need to look. I would like to run a thicker sidewall, 35 series instead of 30. Ride quality and less rotational weight would be my main factors in considering 19's over 20's. In our cars it seems that you can't run a 35 Series tire without rubbing (at least for certain. Some were successful, some were not). Ideally, I'd pick up a set of your wheels in 19×10 in the front, and 19x11 in the rear. I'd like to run 285/35/19 tires in the front and 305/35/19 tires in the rear. When I look up that fitment on tirerack, the only tires that pop up are Michellin Cup 2's (great tires as I've had them in the past, but not what I'm looking for in my daily ZL1). I know you guys love your squared setup, but that's just not for me. I can see the reason for a squared setup on my wife's F30 335i (which I personally did not opt for squared when buying wheels and tires for her car), but I really don't like the idea of squared for a 6th Gen. Any idea on sizing options for tires, and proper fitment for wheels? The EC-7 would likely be my choice, although pricing could sway me to ARC-8.

Hello, thanks for the question! To clarify, the "more options" comment is in regards to performance tires in the 305/30-19 size. Bridgestone RE71R, Hankook RS4, Nitto NT01, Goodyear Supercar 3R, etc.

For someone such as yourself searching for more sidewall and ride comfort, 305/35-19 is the way to go but as you saw tire selection is quite limited. I would recommend the Nitto 555 G2 in this case.
