    C6 LS3 Wheels on FBody

    I've been looking at wheels and I decided I think I really like the LS3 wheels for a different look. I think they'll be a little different, and in chrome look good on my NBM. Here's the issue. Really want 295/305 out back, going to stick with 275 up front.

    Front 18x9.5 with a +56mm offset, should fit fine

    Rear is 18x10.5 with a +79mm offset! WTH?

    That offset is giant, just wondering if someone can tell me if I have any chance of stuffing that in, or is it hopeless. I would like the rear wheels to stick out in the fender wells from my stock zr1 wheels.

    I had c5 z06 wheels 10.5in all the way around put on and I hated it from the back because they didn't stick out wider on the car, they might have even been in more. Wheel sized should be easy, but they always get me. Anyone tell me if this may fit?

    LS3 wheels...which ones are those? They newset style with the split spokes? If so, I love those wheels, I think you'll be the first F-Body to have them that I've heard of.

    I was looking at them on Ebay though, all I saw them in was 18/19" combos.

    sorry, it is an 18/19 combo, mistake up top. I think they'll look killer on the car, just want to make sure it fits correctly before I'll do it

    WTF would you want them to stick out past the wheelwells?? That look went out with 70's era hotrods and looks gay as shit on these f-bodies.

    What are you talking about man.... They go in far, not out. I probably need new studs and spacers to get them to look decent, otherwise they will be in at least as far as my current ones.

    I've been kinda wondering about these wheels for awhile.
    I've found them for as low as $300 a set on craigslist.

    Does anyone have pics to show what the wheels look
    like on a camaro?
