Good choice. Post up some installed pics once you get everything mounted and installed.

JeepSRT+7;

Since you have already ordered them, I will tread softly?

1) West-coast Corvette does not specify whether XO Luxury-Verona are rotary forged or cast?
At $1799.95 most likely cast for 19" X 9.5"; 20" X 11" size wheels.(note: Stock Z51 are
forged)

2) 275 vs 245 front tire size may or may not exacerbate the "Ackerman" chatter (effect).

3) Wider wheels may also change your suspension geometry?
For instance, even where the alignment is corrected, there can be significant changes in the
"scrub radius" of the car and unfortunately in most production vehicles, scrub radius "cannot
be directly adjusted?

4) Michelin, Pilot Sport 4S tires, were developed for: Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche. In general- Sport cars, performance sedans and powerful luxury vehicles?
(West-coast Corvette advertises them as Corvette tires, but in reality they are not specifically designed for your Corvette? Your stock OE ZP run-flats are designed for your Z51 "package")

5)305/25-20 may rub periodically, if lowered and/or load-down with cargo? (295's are fine).

Many thanks,

Ray

Captain, you are correct. I just labeled wrong. I have the AS3+ on the stock rims.

Rayland, thank your for your insight. Yea the hopping in a turn may be more pronounced. I accept this behavior of our tires..stock sized or not. I’ll look into the construction of the rim. I preferred the PSS ZP tires but don’t think they come in the sizes I want.

Steven, what size rim and tire do you run?

my car is not lowered. I probably won’t do that anyway.

If you don’t mind me asking where did you purchase your JL audio stealth box? Also which one. I figured you probably went with the single 10 inch. Thanks.
