Just ordered my 18x9.5 ZO6 wheels now I need tires?
Ok I just ordered some 18x9.5 ZO6 wheels from AFS. Now I have to decide on some tires and tire size. I want some 275/35/18s all around. But how would they work if I went with a 275/35/18 in front and 295/35/18 in the rear?

exactly like mine look. I have that exact setup. I have the Z06 f1 supercar 295's in the rear, and they look perfect. I highly recommend it. there is little/no bulging like most would think, and my tires have wonr very evenly. Up front i am running Falken FK-451's
Get 275/40s instead. Ive got 18x9.5 Z06s and had 275/35s up there and there's a better ride quality, and handling factor w/ the 40s vs the 35s. Previous tires were Kumho Supra 712s and sucked (IMO) the new tires are BFG KDWs and rock. No problems w/ traction at all.
And I think it'll look good in the back w/ the 295s back there, but 285s might be better as far as seating properly on the rim.

275/35ZR17 will not change your speedo. I'd recommend that tire on all four corners.
I have Kuhmo Ecsta MX's they are decent for an inexpensive tire.
I've run Michelin Pilot Sports, awesome tire,but a little pricey.
