Default About tires size for my Z51

Hello!
I just got some nails on both rear tires and the shop can't fix it. They told me to get new tires. So i looking for some tires but also i want go wider on it. Mine is z51 2016 so is it okay to go 305 on it? Anyone have any problem with it? and it awesome if you have a picture of it. I just can't image how it look like. Also any brand that u recommend beside Michellin?
Thank You!

I've seen several threads of people running a 305 rear on a stock Z51, for example...

Go to Tire Rack find your car and look for tires they say will fit. Or find the tire and look for applications they say are OK. Easy to do. Either gets you to the same place. Will the tire fit the rim? Of course, you'll need your rear rim specs. Also figure out how much wider the 305 is and use a measuring tape to see how much further is will stick out. Unless you want the low rider look?
