    Question 2000 Z28, What offset + tire size for a 17x9? Is 35mm ok?

    Found a set of rims I like, they're 17x9, universal for 5x120 and 5x114.3 bolt pattern and 35mm backspacing.

    Will that look right? I want them to fill the wheel wells as good as/if not better than stock.

    And what's the biggest size tires I can get on them?

    I'm also trying to figure out, is there any way to tell just from that info if they have a slight deep dish look to them? The pic on the site looks it but it says "appearance may vary by application".

    Help me out guys...it sucks ass finding rims for our cars and I think I really like these.

    don't use them.
    The offset is correct, but the bolt pattern is wrong... the lugnuts will get loose often... you should get 5x120.65, not 5x120

    DAMNIT! I actually liked them. I'm sick of this crap man, why doesn't ANYONE make reasonably priced aftermarket wheels for f-bodies.

    I love rims like Fikse and the like but their prices are absolutely RIDICULOUS!!! I could never justify wasting over $2k on JUST rims! If I spend money like that on my car it'd be for something that adds 60+hp.

    I wanted rims in the $500-800 price range for the set.

    I just bought 4x 18x10.5 c6 wheels chrome from www.lmperformance.com.
    All 4 are within your price range... i got them @ 179/wheel.

    I like them but I was trying to find something no one really has.

    If I go vette rims I'm either going the ZR1's or Z06 Motorsports

    I have no idea where you got that info from but that's not true at all. The wheels will fit fine. I'm speaking from experience. I have a set of wheels right now on my bird that are a 5x120 bolt pattern. I've had the wheels on for a year and a half with no problems.

    I too was thinking about buying these same wheels but going with a 18x9.5 instead of the 17x9. You may want to consider that option because the lip is fatter on the 18's versus the 17's and the wheels just look better in a 18 IMO.

    The 18's are just a 1/4 in. widder than the 17's so not alot widder just a tad bite more. Here's the Sportmax website http://www.sportmaxwheel.com/sportmax_962.shtml so you can see some specs.
