    Thats for road racing right not a daily driver? I know I wouldn't want those monsters on the front of my car just cruising around.

    the modification is a half in spacer and at least 10.5 in wheels with a 53mm offset by the way!

    Better turning on the street is good no?

    Yes I run a spacer in the front but not in the back atm.

    I gotta agree with sscott, always liked the bigs and littles look but to each his own that is what makes it fun. Although I have heard and I think we have addressed before concerns about the safety of spacers.

    If the difference between front tire size on gas mileage is any concern at all you should have waited till you could afford to drive an F-body to buy one.

    triple-black
    2000 CamaroSS convertible

    i like my big skinnies on all corners.
    I use 315s on a daily basis... only regret is not doing it earlier.
    the car responds well to same size tires allround... and corners well with wide tires... plus, there is no downside of them, apart a bit of mass... i rather have more grip and cornering abilities while sacrificing 0.05 seconds on a straight line... you can always get more power... lol.

    almost stock triple-black 2000 SS convertible with 17x11s on all 4 w/ 315s at the track or on the street with 18x10.5s on all 4 w/ 315s: (1), (2)
