    Rims-Will they fit?

    I was at the Rim shop in town, looking at some rims and I said I wanted 18*8.5 in the front and 18*10 in the back and the guy told me that the rear ones probably won't fit. Anyone have rims this size or know the story?
    Thanks

    They'll fit with the proper offset.

    Not sure what that number is though.

    They sell 18x9.5 and 19x10 replica vette rims for birds and camaros. Think they'd fit our cars without rubbin or spacers? or would it be better to get 17 & 18s? cause i was wonderin about rim size too, not sure what'd be too big

    I got 17X9.5-18X10.5's with 305/35/18 tires in the back and they fit fine. I had a little rub under turning stress when I first got em, but I shaved down the inside of the fenderwell a little and they fit perfect.

    I run the ZR1 replica's with a 17x9.5 fr (275/40/17) and 17x11 rr(315/35/17). Check the lug pattern and offset. If it's good, try em on to see about clearance.

    I had to bang out my inner fender wells, and could really benefit from rolling the fenders
