Tire and wheel sizes

Here you will find some popular tire and wheel combos that people *are* running on their cars. This is meant to apply to the 83-88 SS's.


It is important to note the stock bolt pattern as well, it is "5 on 4 3/4".
  • stock = 215/65 on 15x7 front and rear

    Front tire/wheel:

  • 225/60 on 15x7 (stock wheel)
  • 235/60 on 15x7 (stock wheel)
  • 235/60 on 15x7 (offset: 6mm)
  • 235/55 on 16x8 (4" backspacing)
  • 245/50 on 16x8 (4" backspacing)

    Rear tire/wheel:

  • 225/60 on 15x7 (stock wheel)
  • 235/60 on 15x7 (stock wheel)
  • 245/60 on 15x7 (stock wheel)
  • 255/60 on 15x7 (stock wheel)
  • 255/60 on 15x8 (offset: 19mm)
  • 245/50 on 16x8 (4" backspacing)

    235/60 R15 on 15x7 is by far the most popular size for all four corners.

    245/50 R16 on 16x8 is my personal favorite and what I run on my SS using 4 16x8 f-body front wheels.
