    Fitment Issue

    I just got my 10.5"x18 from oewheels that were suppose to fit with no modifications on the rear. The wheel itself is extremely close to the bumper pad in case you bottom out. Just wondering if anyone else has had this issue with their Trans am or Camaro. I think I can grind it down but how much distance is needed to be considered safe?

    If its got 56 mm offset and 7.95 back spacing. You should be alright. They print the wheels specs on the outside of the box. The trick is the tire if it's bigger then 295 then you may rub and need to take a hammer to the wheel well or trim the bump stomp. If the offset or back spacing are different you may need to run spacers. Or trim the bump stops.

    You can grind it back to get some more room. It doesn't need much but if it's close and you aren't comfortable with it you could make yourself a little more room

    When you test fit them was that with the car up in the air with the suspension hanging? If that's the case once the car is listed on the ground you should have more room. Also is your panhard bar adjustable because if so you could adjust it to better center your rear for the most clearance possible
