Default C7 Stingray Tire Fitment

I apologize if this is a silly question, but I haven't had my C7 very long. Does anyone currently run Z06 tire sizes (285/19 - 335/20) on their base Stingray on OEM wheels? I would really like to up-size them for both looks and additional traction, but don't want to make a big mistake on a big purchase. I do have the car lowered on factory bolts which reduced the wheel gap by an inch or so.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

I think you're going to need a widebody kit to fit those. GS/Z06 are wider than the stock C7 base.

This definitely won't work on a Stingray. You would need to get wider rims. By doing so, the rim will stick out beyond the body and look terrible (and could rub).

That's what I was afraid of. Maybe I could bump the rear tires up to 305's and still get a small up-size. Thank you for the info!

I'm running 285/25/20 on the front and 375/20/21 Pirelli's on the rear mounted on HRE 9.5" front and 12" rear. I had to raise the car back up (had it lowered all the way on stock bolts) a bit and get a slight rub on the rears on full compression so I'm going to raise it up a bit more to avoid that. They fit great and the ride is a lot nicer than I thought it would be with such big, low-profile meats. HRE really know their offsets.

I was running a 295 MPSS's on the stock 20" Z51 wheel but it just wasn't near enough with the power I have. I tried a set of TSW's with 10.5" width on the rear but the aggressive offset didn't allow me to go any wider than stock width without rubbing at full drop. This is my daily driver so I won't run a drag radial. Nobody makes a 375 in this diameter any more so I have a wimpy set of 325/25/21 Pirellis ready to go on the rear when these 375's are done.

Good point - my comment was if Z06 wheels were used.
