1LE and ZL1 tire size - staggered vs non staggered question

Does anyone know if you can use the same rear tire sizes from a ZL1 on a 1LE?
Both cars have the same exact rims and rim sizes, Chevy just puts a larger rear tire on the same ZL1 rim.

ZL1's have 20x10 and 20x11 wheels, either bright 5-spoke (optional on ZL1 only) or black 10-spoke (standard wheel on ZL1 and only ones available with 1LE) style wheel with tire size 285/35/20 in front and 305/35/20 in the rear.

You're right about the 1LE used the front ZL1 tires on all 4 corners. But there's no reason you couldn't put a 305/35 on the rear. They do it for the ZL1. They do stick out just a hair though.

I have 305/35 nittos on my SS with the stock rim looks much better than the 275's IMHO.
