    HI there,

    Yes, this is a subjective thing based on availability.

    The normal sizes are fronts : 265/40ZR17 Rears 295/35ZR18

    I have used the following on ZO6 without issue.

    Front : 275/40ZR17 Rear 295/30ZR18

    The fronts are 10mm wider but are widely available.

    The rears I could not obtain in 35 aspect ratio so I went to a slightly smaller 30 aspect ratio.

    These are the closest I could obtain for my customer and not create rubbing issues or inaccurate ABS or speedometer issues.

    Allthebest, Paul

    I have a 2003 Z06 and have been trying to find tires. I have Michelin Pilot Sport 2 tires on it now, 265/40 zr17 in the front and 295/35 zr18 in the rear on the original wheels. I can purchase Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires in size 265/40 zr17 for the front but this tire is not available in 295/35 zr18 for the rear. This tire is available in size 285/35 zr18 and there is only a 0.2 inch difference in diameter compared to the 295/35 zr18 tire. Do any of you folks see any problem with using the 265/zr17 tires on the front and the 285/35 zr 18 tires on the rear? Thank you.
