    Question: Rim Width

    I have a 1997 Z/28 an I'm wanting to put C5 Z06 wheels on it. Most that I have found are 17x9.5. My question is: will the 9.5 width have any fitment issues? Will they go on without any modification to the wheel wells? I know these wheels are popular, has anyone delt with this issue?

    Should fit just fine, it's the same size the SS's came with.

    The SS had 17x9 10 spoke rims. Im betting that extra half inch will rub. Too bad you cant get those SS 10 spokes anywhere. Those look killer but had peeling issues and eventually would not hold air.
