    to run 11 wide rim. you have to do some custom work on it... i have 295s on 10.5 rim, i had to bent the inside fender, just get something and bent that shit... its gonna hurt you the same way it hurt me...

    Are you talking about the rear bump stops?

    If you are unbolt them with a 13mm socket.

    Pie cut the bump stops with a grinder on each side of the hump.

    Now take your BFH amd pound the bolt holes straight down.

    Then take your grinder and cut them flush.

    Now take your BFH and flatten the metal nice and coat it with some black rockerguard spray.

    Bolt your wheels on and enjoy your new steamrollers.

    I run 11s in the back mine dont rub at all. Maybe your back spacing on your wheels is wrong.

    thats just inconsistencies in the cars and the rims...some guys run 315s on 11" rim just fine, some cant fit 295s on 10".

    i have 295s on 10.5" they fit fine, but its tight...i bottom out easy.

    on a camaro they need to be 50mm and you will have to do some work. on camaros if you get 36 mm they will stick out. i have the 36mm on my ta no problems and no mods needed. they stick out just a hair.

    Will, quick question.

    On Maynard up by the light on 3rd street, well 1 street back to the right, there is a 98-02 Camaro with black ZR1's, do you know if its a V8 car? I only have seen it quickly in passing. Figured maybe you would know the local F-body guys. I have seen a few Firehawks at the college downthere and a few Z28s and WS6 cars.

    Hello Forgiven. I see that this is your first post. Welcome to the site. I am sure you will not recieve a reply from Blue. He hasn't been on here in over a year. If you look at the thread, you will see that it is a couple of years old. It's not a problem, someone else will answer your question. You just have to keep in mind that some of these people are no longer active on here. IF you want to know if anybody is still active, you can just hold your mouse over their name in the thread, and a window will pop down. Select latest posts, or something to that effect, and you will be taken to their profile, and you can see the last time they posted. Sorry I can't answer your question, but someone will be able to. Again, welcome to the site!

    Thank you for that information. I actually thought I deleted that post I made after looking back and realizing he was not sure himself of the exact offset. From the other replies I saw on this thread (and looking elsewhere) it looks like my answer to what offset to look for is 30-36mm rims. It was helpful to see what others posted here. So for what it is worth, I am looking for C4 ZL1 rims, it is good to know that at least. ...(I have a pair of those already sized 17x9.5 that I will be putting on the front)...If I can not find that style, any less than ugly rim of those dimensions will have to do....I buy used to keep costs down. I will look around and see where best to state that....looking to buy....
