    Mine are 18's, what do you think. Are these the type of rims you want?

    They are either 9.5" or 10" wide, I'm pretty sure its 9.5, when I bought the car, the guy was going to put the stock rims back on there, but I offered him and extra $300 to keep them. But I'm sure if you looked around you could find a great deal. I just bought a new set of black 17" ZR1's with drag radials on the back for $500

    Here's my Camaro with 20's. I no longer own it, I bought the rims used from a friend of mine. They were 20" by 11.5" wide. I was running 305's all the way around. Yes they would rub, but only in hard cornering, even after much altering.
    In retrospect, I would not have bought them, I would not recommend going any larger than 19 at the most, with 18 being the most desirable. Just my opinion.
    People either loved them, or hated them, I got a lot of compliments on them, and a few people said they were too big.
    I learned to hate them in time, but I sold the original rims.

    18's will fit they may rub a little

    but the main thing is 18" tires are alot more expensive

    just something to think about

    My $.02 is that 18's are ideal for our cars (from an appearance standpoint). I still have the stock 17's on my car, however I will likely upgrade to the 18" C6 wheels in the future. I think most of the rims that are larger than 18" simply look too big on our cars.

    mine are 17X9.5, i dont see 18 being a problem. the main reason i didnt go with 18's is because i couldnt find a set that was the same width front and back, and tire cost....i do a lot of driving.

    I had 18x9.5 C5 Z06's all around. They look great in 18's. I have seen them in 17's and the Z06 wheels look to small.

    18s look good and handle really well, too. I run 18x8 and 18x9, 35mm offset, no issues with rubbing.
