I have a 2000 Camaro, just a V6 with 16 inch wheels, and I was wondering what the best size to put on is. No snow driving, I'm in Texas.

As a minimum, there should a manufacturer's sticker either on the door jam, glove box, or console giving the size of tire originally equipped. This would be a good start with OE wheels. Can't go wrong starting here.

If equipped with aftermarket wheels, the tire tread width should equal the wheel width.

I personally would go with a bi-directional all-season tire, especially if front & rear wheel/tires are the same size. This would allow cheaper rotation pricing when performing this event, tire would not have to be broken down & re-balanced. In Texas, maybe a good rain tire......LOL.

Not many tire dealers are offering Lifetime Rotation at a cheap price when originally purchase the tire. They find the store can make more money at rotation time than selling L/T rotations. I just gigged my tire store for this, and in the end, they did it for free because I shown them on their receipt, I prepaid for this service, CHA CHIN!

Never again will I buy uni-directional tires because of this reason, unless this is the only option. And, how do you tell the tire store you DON'T need a front end alignment when the car, as designed, has 9* of caster?

Welcome to the Club, hope you enjoy your stay. Other here, I hope, will release their knowledge.
