    17x9.5 or 11 wide?

    I am debating on getting 17x9, and 17x11 Zr-1's for my car (stock 99 Z, m6) will running that wide a rim in the rear present any issues? if I run the 9.5 wide's all the way around, what size tires can i run, also how wide a tire should I go with if i get the 11's

    If you go 11s in the rear, and I would advise going 11s, you should run 315s for the rear. If you opt for the 9.5s all around, you would probably want 275/40/17 all around.

    thanks, I was thinking of going with the deep dish ZR1's maybe. If I thow 4.10's or 3.73's, ya think I'll grenade the 10 bolt with stock power? will i still be able to spin the 315's if I feel the need?

    i have 11 on my ta ws6 6 speed. you can spin them on stock power.
    i would go with 50mm backspacing on the camaro. i have 36mm and they stick out just a bit on the ta. and the camaro rear quarters dont stick out as much as the ta does. heres one pick. these are the zr1's also. with 315's.

    You should still be able to spin the tires on command with the 11s.

    17x9 5 or 11 wide

    Like the title states.......post pics of your rear 11" wide rims and what backspacing, tire size and if you have any fitment issues. Just want to make determination if I want to go that wide, thanks

    Just wondering if 315/35/17 on an 11 inch rear wheel is a good fit for a 99 trans am.
