    C6 18x10.5 with 295/35/18 ok?

    do you think that C6 18x10.5 with 295/35/18 will work? I will also be doing the 1.5 in eibach kit. Would it look that much different with 275/35/18?

    The 275's will be a little bit shorter in height.. Here's a tire calculator that works really well:

    Dude really weird question....... on your wheels does the center cap kind of "inset" like on the 19 in zo6 corvette wheels? Its kind of hard to explain, does the wheel seem to be sunk in just a little compared to the outer lip?

    They'll work fine, 275 is a bit narrow for a 10.5 rim; stick with 295/305/315. Don't go 315 all around though... I'm still not the least bit sure as to why anybody would do that... Most wheel sets with 10.5 rear will be a 9.5 front, so go 265 or 275, just match profile heights. You won't know if you have to massage the wells until you try to stick em in there, every car is a little different; lots of people just mount them up, others of us had to beat the piss out of the car before they fit right!
