    I did this mod today and I'm just sharing my experience. I have a 2000 Trans Am with ZR-1 replicas. I have full UMI suspension, Kooks long tubes, Kooks true duels, lid, smooth below, all free mods. I didn't have to clearance anything. I did get side ways and heard a rub for a second so the BFH part of this mod will have to be done. I used Nitto 555's and they are by far the SHITTIEST tire I have ever used (street). I should have listened to the other people in the other threads about this tire. I have used Michellin Pilots, Riken Raptors, and Continental DWS Extremes. (All 275's) The best tires have been the Continentals. They stick to the road cold, hot, or wet.

    yep, its a really easy mod.
    unless you have a strange offset that pushes the tire way inboard, the ZR1 C5 17x11s fit with minimal grinding.
    mine fit nicely with UMI suspention, 1.25" Vogtland lowering springs, konis, and sumitomo 315s. just some cheap tires i had laying around. Ill get some Nitto NTO5s or Toyos later.

    have 315's on mine, didn't need to do any mods for them to fit thank God. I'm sporting the ZR1 17x11's on mine with Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta tires. did do some adjusting with the panhard bar though.

    A little while ago i went to a tire shop to throw on my C5Z06s. While they were putting the wheels on the owner of the shop stated that the wheels were in fact 10" even though the box said they were 9.5". He said to disregard the box and that they were definitely 10" wide. Therefore I'm considering throwing on a set of Nitto 555DRs I have laying around. I only consider doing so because I've heard these tires are not as wide as other 315s. Would I be ok? I ask because my 295 kumho ecstas aren't hooking for sheeeet ever since I got the cam/intake.

    Here's a link to my wheels: Corvette Z06 Wheels

    I know this may come off as a noob question/statement, but I just want to hear some opinions before I got out and try it.

    For most 315s you need at a minimum a wheel that is 11". However I have seen some that a 10.5" wheel is only required. I wouldn't put 315s on a 10" wheel. You could do 305s though.

    I hear where you're coming from, but since the NT555Rs are so much skinnier than other 315s wouldn't I in essence be running a 305? I ask because I can't find any new 305s on the market for a 17in wheel.

    I can't really answer that question since I have never owned nittos. But on their site it says 10.5 is the minimum recommended wheel width. You could try it but I still wouldn't recommend it unless it is dimensionally the same as a normal 305 tire.

    Not to mention you want some sidewall for curb rash among other things.

    If they are connected to Photobucket it's because of Photobucket is holding all images hostage because they want money to share your pics.
