A 315 would be sweet! I stuffed 315s in the back of my Vette, and while they looked so freakin' wide off the car, when mounted you don't really get the same feeling. On an open three-wheeled vehicle it would be a steamroller!!
Yeah the more open the rear of the car is the wider the tires tend to look. I will be researching hard to find the widest tire I can find on the stock rim as soon as I get my Slingshot. So all the info will be posted up here as soon as it becomes available
I already have a stack of slicks and radials in my garage that I am hoping fit. The first thing I'm going to do is a 1/4 mile run with the stock tire for a base line and then swap it out for a sticky slick or drag radial and see how much time it shaves off.
Tangent: I ran mostly 12.9s all day at a track rental a couple years ago in my Vette, and those runs were with the stock Goodyear Runcraps!
I have yet to go back now that I have Michelin PS2's, but I'm sure it would do better. They're much lighter and stickier.
1998 C5 in triple black (convertible). They are very forgiving of the rules for convertibles, on track rental days.
I think published #s for the C5s were supposed to be around 13.5 sec 1/4 mile.
I guess I shaved off 6 tenths because of my Vararam intake, Stage II Jet Performance module, and B&B bullet exhaust with Borla X pipe.
I picked up a set of 3:42 gears off an '04 Z06 a couple years ago (my stock gears are 2:73), So i'd like to go back to the track with the 3:42s and a higher stall torque converter (yes, sadly it's and A4 transmission - but it's good for the track!) . . .
. . . that is all assuming I don't sell the Vette for a Slingshot!
Judging by the "spy" photo of the tires that the fronts are 205s. The patent drawings show the rear tire just a little bigger than the fronts so I am guessing:
225/45/17 rear (maybe 245)
My wife and I have a 2019 SLR with factory tires. The rear is starting to wear and I'd like to have a new one on hand to put on soon. The factory tire is a 305=30-20.I want to go to a 295-50-20. I've even seen a 295-45-20 I liked. Any comments or concerns about my plans???
I’ve been shopping around and looking online for answers and so far I have gotten nowhere.
when i look online to shop for wheels for my 2015 base Ss, i believe it is 17x7 / 5x114 / 42mm front and 18x9.5 / 5x114 / 45mm rear.

I really love the look of the stock wheels but I was wondering if they make a rear wheel that looks like this in a 20x11. I have done some searching and have come up with nothing. If they dont I will probably go with the all black slr wheels. Any good place to start looking for those? I...
