    you'll need at least a 1/2" spacer if not a bit more.

    then why are you going with 17x11s if you don't want them to be to far in or out? there's only so much room in those fenderwells and 17x11s are stick out to an extent no matter what......

    want them to fit as best possible bro....there fikse wheels...u dont buy expensive wheels that dont fit perfect..i want 315/35s on the rear for more traction....as u can see in my sig that has been a prob for me...i LOVE the way 315s look on the rear of an fbody ....i dont want them miles out past my rear fenders though if they dont have to be ....itll look like one of those hoodrat mustang 5.0s with wheels 6 inches past the fenders..

    >AFS wheels sells the correct offset for the rears if you want to go with 315/35ZR17 and 275/40ZR17 for the front.
    They have pics on their site http://www.afswheels.com/Shop/Contro...1368/set_num/1
    BTW they are cheaper on Ebay from them too.
