Default Gonna get some ZR1's...what tires to go with them?

I'm gonna be getting some chrome ZR1's...17x9.5's in the front and 17x11's in the rear. I'm wanting to get some Nitto NT 555R 315-35-17 DR's for the rears and some Nitto NT 555 EP 275-40-17 ST's for the fronts.

What do you guys think of that setup? How will it drive and how will the 11's do in the back? Will I have to do any modifications to the wheel well or anything? Is this a pretty ideal setup? And how is my tire selection? Thanks.

You should be fine with those tires. You will most likely have to bang in the inner wheel well a little bit.

Thanks man. I was reading under the stickied "Does This Fit" thread at the top, and it said with 17x11's, there is a possibility of needing the BFH and/or fender rolling mods with 315 tires. What exactly is BFH and what fender rolling mods? Sorry if this seems like a stupid question.

The BFH is not always needed. I have no trouble with 315 Sumitumo's on my 01 Z28.
They went on no problem and no rubbing at all. It does vary with each car but many I know had no problem with the combo you mentioned. Besides the Nitto's are on the small size for 315's. BFG DR's however in that size run wider and have been known to need the BFH. Hope this helps.
