    C6 Wheels on a 98 SS

    Does anybody know where I can pick up a set of c6 wheels with the correct back spacing for a 98 SS? I was thinking 18x8.5 or 9.5 in the front and 18x9.5 or 10 in the rear. I have found a few places online that sell them but I dont want to buy anything until I know they will fit without beating my inner fender or sticking out a mile. Any info would be great.

    That same place that a lot guys have gotten from on ebay seems good, OE Wheels, its where i got mine, mine are 17X9.5 all the way around, you can get offset 17X9.5 and 18X10.5. i dont know if you can get a full set of 18's. they come in various combos including gun metal, chrome, black chrome/hyper silver, black and black with chrome lips, C6 and Z06. i had some fitment issues, but nothing major. when you remove the center cap, theres that big whole between the lugs, i had to grind out the paint, and a little metal, maybe 1/32 of an inch, it took a while, but they're on, and that was on the rear, the front mounted up just fine.

    Well Im leaning more to 17 or 18x9.5 so I would be using 275/40 for the 17s or 275/35 if I go with 18s. That sound about right?

    Did you have any trouble fitting those under the car? Any hammers or grinders involved?
