I just picked up this new to me 2001 Camaro SS. It only had 19k on it and is in almost mint condition. The owner had all the extras put on it and apparently also put on these rims.
As best I can tell from just measuring them they are American Racing "Torq Thrust" or something similar in a 17" x 11" or 10.5" width. The tires I believe are the original ones, they are from 2002, I know that much.
Question: Arent these tires a little small for the larger width rim? Weren't the stock rims narrower? What size should
Not exactly sure what you're asking here. What size are the tires on there now?
One owner, 1997 WS6 Trans Am - Far from stock. | Forged 383 with AFR LT4 heads | Hooker Longtubes | M6 tranny | Wheels: RPM 505 | Front: 19 x 9.5 / Tires: 275-30-19 | Rear: 19 x 13 / Tires: 345-30-19 | Fully adjustable front & rear coil-over suspension | Tubbed rear-end and a bunch of other stuff...
If the tires are from 2002, they are 10 year old tires. Be careful. I would look into new ones and save those to car shows 30 years from now! LOL! Seriously, rubber degrades with time and blow out can occur.
those are 275 tire on a 11" Rim, pick up some 315/35/17 Nitto's
this.........555's or 555R's in 315/35 with fit perfect......i run the 555R's, love em

Thanks for all the help guys. One more question. I live in MT so we can definitely have cold days and a lot of time where this car wont even be driven. I don't have a heated garage though. The NT555R and 555RII's have a warning about cold weather and temps causing damage to them. The regular 555's dont have that warning. Are they a different compound which is more cold tolerant?
