    Thumbs up 315 tires on! love 'em

    I got my Sumitomo HTR Z 315 35 zr17's on today, and they are sweet!!!

    i know a lot of people are against putting them on the stock SS zr1 wheel,
    but I do not corner hard, and I think it looks awesome! plus they were only
    $110 each so it was worth the tirerack experiment....
    I will post some pics in a day or two, I also got my 35th anniversary stripes on today...

    and I am sure there will be people flame me for putting 35th anniversary stripes on a 2000 model SS, but again, this is my car, and I think it looks really nice.

    I fell in love my car again today... I have not been this happy with a car of mine in 15 years.... so i had to share my feeling with yall... It is like having a new car without paying new car prices, and I can't get a new camaro yet anyways.

    i can't wait to get some pics up.

    i was not allowed to post a link to my pics because I didn't have enough posts... I posted here a lot before the site went down, then it made me re-register for even reading the threads... and I went to camaross.com for my help the last 6 months... then finally broke down and re-registered here,,, oh well

    so far I have not experienced any rubbing, that I can hear or feel, I have
    not pulled the wheels to look for scuffing...

    one thing 315s on the 9" wide ss wheels causes the contact patch to be incorrect,,, I noticed in on the wet parking lot today, that about a half inch of the outside of the tread was dry, meaning it was not making contact with the pavement...

    I would try lowering them by 5 psi, no more. You can always raise it back up if you don't like it.
    They look great, btw.

    that's because they are buldging...
    the other possibility is to lower the pressure, get contact patch more on the sides, but not in center since it will go in a bit... so you won't get a nice patch throughout the tire.
