    Corvette rims on WS6?

    My question is this: Can I put the 17 x 9.5 front and 18 x 10.5 rear Zo6 rims on a 2001 WS6 that has been lowered about 1 inch? Will there be clearance issues? Or do I need to go with the 17 x 9.5 rims all the way around? Dont really want the rear wheels to stick out past the fender. Thanks for the help!

    I used to have that setup on my Camaro, with a 1.25" drop, you will be fine with that setup.

    thanks for the info. What kind and size tires did you run? I am finding out that the rear tires are pretty pricey.

    18s are pricey. I ran 275/40/17 up front and 295/35/18 in the rear, BFG KDW in front, KDW2 in the rear.

    I have an RS Camaro and have the ZO6 rims on mine and it will work just make sure you roll the lip of the fender well if you do. I didn't do it to mine and it hacked up the tire. Of course I had spacers on the rear.

    will I need spacers with Corvette Zo6 rims on the rear? If so what size? Dont really want the tires to stick out past the fender.

    I found out that the offset for the front is +54mm on the front and +56mm on the back. Is there any need for spacers? Thanks for the help so far!

    no not really unless you just want them. My Camaro has them and I had 1.25" spacers on there but it was for looks.
