    Adapters

    I was told by Chevy that I need 2 inch adapters for my rear wheels, which are the C6's from a Vette, in order to make them fit. For some reason the right side went in fine, but the left side didn't. Has this happened to anyone and will it make the rear rims stick out a lot? I have a 2000 Z-28. Thanks in advance.

    If they are the standard c6 wheels, the rears are 1910 (+79mm offset) and require a 1.25 adapter to compensate for the deep offset on them. The fronts are 188.5 (+56mm offset) and are a direct bolt-on.

    these should do the trick...just make sure the hub bore is correct size.

    another option is to sell those and buy the c6 replicas from oewheels....they are low price and look great.

    I don't know why chevy told me I needed a 2 inch adapter. I would sell them but I already bought tires for them so I'm stuck with them and trying to make them finally work.

    Get a sett of H & R 30mm hubcentric adapters (pt# 6085704), and then your effective offset will then be +49, which will work great.
