To take full advantage of the Monte Carlo's new handling potential, we shelved the stock 15-inch wheel and tire package for a set of Center Line Qualifier wheels, sized 17x 8.0 with a 4 1/2-inch backspacing. They're not only good looking, but they weigh a mere 19 pounds each. We mounted a set of General Exclaim UHPs sized 235/45R17, front, and 245/45R17 on the rears. The wider tires do a better job of filling out the Monte's wheelwells, and the bigger contact patch will allow it to carve corners with aplomb.
