    tire size and active handling system

    I am thinking of getting the C6 Z06 wheels in the 17x9.5 in front and 18x10.5 in the back. I have 17x8.5 in front and 18x9.5 in back. Will the change affect my active handling system. They are going on a 99 vette. thankyou for the help.

    while widening the wheel will shorten the tire, assuming the same tire being used, you are doing it equally on the front and rear. so, i see no issues at all.

    Here's my setup:







    Motorsport Z06 17x9.5 front and 18x10.5 rear
    Nitto 275/40ZR-17 front and 285/35ZR-18 rear

    Have had no problems of any kind. Now, if your car is lowered, or you plan on lowering it (like it did), this will complicate clearance a bit, but its correctable.
