Default New XO Verona Wheels.. Now What Size Tires

Just purchased a new set of XO Verona wheels (19x9 1/2 & 20x11) for my 2014 Z51. I'd like to hear from you guys on what brand and size tires that you're using on your Vette. My car is lowered on the stock bolts. I'd like to go a little bigger but I don't want any tires rubs. Thank you for your time and replies..

I have the same size wheels but a different brand. I am running 265/35-19 and 305/30-20. They do not rub and do not stick out.

I went with Toyo's. 275/30-19 and 305/25-20. No issues but looking at the clearance I have I think the 305/30 would have fit ok.

7LitreC5 thanks for your reply. Here's what I'm going to run, a new set or factory original Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP. Can you tell any difference in the handling or ride with the one inch wider wheels all around? By the way you car looks Great. Has your Vette been lowered on the stock bolts??

John Michael, I'm glad you pulled the trigger on these wheels! I hope I was able to help you make your decision.

I'm lowered with OEM sized rubber and no rubbing-plus, I'm lowered too.

What color wheels did you decide on?

Thanks. My car is at stock ride height. The front may be a tiny bit lower than stock due to the extra weight of the Edelbrock EForce.


I got my wheels/tires in the middle of winter so I have not driven it enough to be able to answer the ride quality question.

I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on these as well next month. Do the stock run flats fit these wheels or do you have to get new tires as well? thanks, sorry for hijacking.

I just looked up oem z51 and both veronas are an inch wider than stock. Will that look ok/normal or will it look weird? I've never been a wheel guy, so i am clueless...
