I run weld rts 17x10 rear with 295-45-17 mt et streets and 18x5 rts fronts with m&h 185-55-18. Car hooks ok on the street and dead hooks at a decent track. Making just over 700whp with a pro yank 3600 converter. Ask for cts-v fitment.

Seems like someone didn't do enough research see my signature. Hoosier 28" bias ply slicks. As far as I know I'm the only SS in the 1.4x range.

Any Ss's on 15s yet???

On my 2015 i was able to run Bogarts by doing a 17x5 up front with a 28x4.5 front runner and a 17x10 in the rear with a 325 m&h tire with absolutely no modifying or rubbing. The ONLY wheel that you can run on the rear of these and be able to fit a 325 tire is the Bogart wheels because of their offset

I have no need for that much tire. I just came upon this wheel setup for a deal i couldn't pass up so i mainly put them on to see if they would in fact work and also to see how they would look since i hadnt seen an SS on Bogarts.
