I already ordered them when you posted. Plus I have a tpms service kit as well. Was just going to use black rustoleum and paint them.

Gotcha. I wanted to wait until you test fitted the fronts with the 275 tires but I went ahead and ordered new satin graphite rear wheels. They're discontinued but a seller on eBay has some so I went ahead and grabbed them. GM still has the fronts in stock but they're pretty steep at a little over $600 each plus a core charge. I'm not sure if I'll take a chance and wait to see if some new ones pop up somewhere else or just bit the bullet and order from GM so I can have a brand new set before they run out of stock and discontinue the fronts also. I'm still nervous with these offsets that I'm going to want adapters to get a similar fitment to what I have now, but I guess we'll see. I don't remember if it was this thread but supposedly a 5mm spacer can be used and the wheel will still engage the hub and there's enough threads that longer studs aren't needed. A 5mm spacer front and rear would be significantly cheaper than adapters and so far, I'm not finding any 15mm adapters even though I saw at least one person mention using them on something.

Wow, 600 each! I was supposed to get them installed yesterday. I will now get them installed on Thursday. I have some tpms on the way. I also went with the P4Ss although I would have went with Continentals had they come in a 305/19. Although I have no doubt the P4S will be great tires. I haven't even checked on alternatives is they don't work out. Might be able to get 5mm spacers though.

I'm trying to find 3mm or 5mm hubcentric spacers for the front. I'm trying to search the posts for anyone running a 275 front as I would expect them to need spacers as well.
How are your rear tire clearances looking? Rubbing etc... If I did a 305/35/19 in the PSS ya reckon with those wheels I'd clear at stock height?
Seems ok so far, but I haven't really gone over rough road,bumps or have passengers ( I did have one wheel in the truck and one in the back seat) We put my stock front wheels back on. I have ordered some hub centric spacers from motorsport tech.
