Depends on wheel offset. There's a guy in my region that stuffs 335's under the rear of his LT4. He says he hasn't modified anything and only has minor rubbing under hard cornering. :confused:

Thanks, but notice I asked for diameter, not width.
I autocross 315's all around with no problems, but for off road RallyCross i need an off road tire.

Sorry:withstupid: I believe max is 19". Check TireRack.com or with "Todd@Tires.com". He's a forum member that works for Discount Tire. He can generally be found in the Wheels & Tires section .

I have seen 20" wheels on a vette. Looked funny. 19" would probably be better and if you can afford don't go less than 18". Just my opinion.

Thanks for the replies, but again, I am asking what is the largest TIRE (not wheel) diameter.

My ZR-1 has 345/35/18 Michelins. Is that tall enough for you?

The car has 18x12.5 OZ Mitos with approximately 34mm offset. The 345's fit fine on a ZR-1.
