Hey
Does anyone know what the tire sizes are for the '13 Super Snake? I read that the rear rim will measure 11" for the non wide-body edition, but I haven't seen any mention of tire width, front or back. I guess I'll also ask what the tire sizes for the wide-body option will be, front and back. Thanks

The new Super Snake is wearing Super Sport tires, and Michelin doesn't make a 315/30.... so Im guessing its either a 285/295 in 30 aspect. Just my guess....

That's what I was thinking too. I HOPE NOT!

I know it was a 300 series tires, I just don't remember the rest after the 3. 305 maybe?

It's posted SOMEWHERE because I know I read it.

When I said 300 SERIES I meant like a 305, 315, etc. Not a 30 series aspect ratio (20 series, 30 series, 40 series, etc.).

It was a 300 and something WIDE tire.

Thank-you for that! Can you also provide the tire and rim sizes included with the front and back wide-body option for the '13 Super Snake?

I've noticed in pictures there is 345 rubber on the back rims of the 2013 Carroll Shelby Tribute GT500, which I've read are 14" wide.
Thanks in advance! :peelout:

Is the point of a 295 rear tire to avoid a gas guzzler tax or did a 305/315 rub with the 11" wide wheel connected to it??

I was apparently thinking of the S-1000 when I remembered them being a 300 series tire.

I'm actually surprised that Shelby went to a 11" wide wheel but only runs a 295.

Is it because the front rims for the Super Snake are 20" instead of the 19's on the non-Super Snake '13 GT500?

+1

...an extra 1.5" in rim width compared to the stock rims, but only 10mm extra tire width (both rims 20")? Am I missing something here?

from the 2013 GT500 Super Snake prototype spec sheet: 20" x 11" rear, 20" x 9.5" rear (<- a typo, I believe they meant front)

255-35-ZR-20 on 20" x 9.5" front rim

It seems odd to me that the front rim is only a 1/2 inch wider with the front wide-body kit (10"), and the tire width is only 10 mm wider (265).
