Question Camaro's 1LE similar wheel & tire set up for our GT's?

Hey Guys,
Do you think we can imitate Camaro's 1LE tire wheel set up, maybe this will improve our GT handling: with 285/35R19 tires mounted in 19x10 front wheels and 19x11 rear tires?

I doubt wheels and tires will do much for a stock suspension car. Work on getting the suspension worked out first.

As the above people have stated, wheels don't do crap unless the suspension is modded, I know this, I went from 245's to 275's and didn't feel any difference. Man I want to do some suspension work.

Tire width also isn't too important. It's the compound that is.

Right now I have Steeda sport springs, KONI STRT, GT500 mounts, Michelin Super Sport tires. And planing later to upgrade to adjustable sways and probably watts link.

To run 10" wide up front you need to convert to an SLA set up.

You can run 20x10 with 45 offset I thought.
