    Corvette wheels on Trans AM

    I saw a set of 18x10.5 and 17x9.5 off a corvette. They say they will fit on the 98 trans am. Has anyone tried these? Anyone have pictures of a trans am with them on?

    Most will, some require spacers.
    Need more info tho.
    What type of wheels specifially?!? C5, C6, Z06, ZR1, ...
    Original Equipment GM wheels, or aftermarket?

    Also, most wheel questions get answered in the 'Wheels & Tires' forum.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    I love the C5 thin spokes on our cars, but the z06 rims just look too gawdy

    Offsets etc..in the above thread. 98-02 T/A is best with a 2" spacer. Tire sizes 245/45/17 front and 275/40/18 rear.

    I can't honestly answer that as I don't have a T.A. I would GUESS primarily the front. Hopefully someone with more knowledge of the T.A. suspension can help?

    Speedracer, I think this member may be able to help you with specific T/A fitment questions. PM him and hopefully he can be of assistance.
