    i couldnt imagine putting much more then a 275 in the front. the bigger you go the more it messes with your handling.

    it depends on the offset and if you use a spacer. after that you can alway BFH it and cut out your bump stop, but you shouldn't need to do that tho

    You can put 315s in the front with ease.

    check your tire diameters and include that in the size selection process, if the tires are more than about 1/2' off the abs and asr will trip.

    my only problem with OEW is their wheel widths only go up to 10". I went with factory repoduction wheels because you get way more selection with height and width. you can get c5 z06's 20x11 if you wanted.... not that I personaly would ever do that...

    OEW's repos go to 10.5 and you can put 315s on those wheels.
