20" snows? looks great, but why spend the money on 20's aren't the cost of tires almost worth going with a smaller rims size?

My reason is my summer tires are about doy ne on my stock GXP rims... So going to have to buy new ones this spring.. and I want the Camaro 20's for my summer wheels, so they will be my winter wheels too. Then just have to swith tires between summer and winter.

I plan on selling my GXP rims to help finance it all!

For the price of the 20" snows you could have bought 17" aloys and snows. Not a lot of sidewall on that 20". No protection for the rim if you hit a pothole of chunk of ice. With a 17" rim, you have lots of sidewall and if you do damage a tire or rim thay are cheap to replace. (ie under your deductible).

Pretty sure you can't put a 17" wheel on the GXP!

Looks good, but I don't like the way the 255 fits the 9" wheels in the rear. Leaves the wheels sticking out and prone to damage if you get a little too close to a curb. My 285's are right at the wheel lip, and you could go even wider if the offset was right.

When I get my Camaro 20's, is the 285/30/20 the best size to go with for the rear to help protect the wheel? And 255/35/20 for the fronts??

40 sidewalls clear with 255's.

I don't want to drive it! I found the Blizzaks locally for $500. Guy didn't know what he had. So the set up was very economical based on what I found and negotiated.
