    Fitting 17'X11" Rims on Rear?

    Can anyone tell me what has to be done to fit 11" wide rims on the rear of a 98 Z-28. I have been told that some hammering to the inner fender, and rolling the outer fender lip, plus an adjustable panhard bar. Is this correct? Also, how does a shop roll the outer fender lip in? Thanks.

    you would need to get wheels with an offset very close to +50mm.
    You pretty much have it all summed up.
    You might want to cut the outer part of the bumpstops as well.
