    Need help with tires please!

    I have a set of 18' chrome Z06 wheels. 9.5's in the front and 10.5's in the back. I would like to put a set of 275's on the front and 295's on the back. I don't know if I want 35's or 40's. Can someone help me out with some tire sizes and brand ideas, possibly some pictures. I've been thinking about going with some BFG's.

    Use 275/35/18's in the front and 295/30/18 in the rear. Tire selection really depends on several factors.
    Price range and intended use being the major ones.

    35s so that the overall diameter isn't too big.

    35's on my 18's and they look just right, although it makes the "offroad road" stance look even worse. i did the hose mod to lower the back, but it wasnt enough, so the whole car is gettting dropped more VERY soon.

    Money really isn't an issue with tires, I would like to get the best setup I can find. I won't be driving my Z28 that much, only on weekends. I would also like to drop it in the near future. What hose mod where you talking about.

    The hose mod he speaks of is deleting the rear upper spring isolator pad an putting heater hose on the first 2 or 3 coils to prevent metal on metal banging thus giving you a 1/2" drop without changing springs. I have the Eibach Pro-Kit an 18"x9.5" chrome ZO6's with 275/35 BFG kdw 2's on all 4 corners. Here are a few pics......
