    Yes they will fit fine with a 295 tire. Anything bigger than a 295, and you will have to do some work to allow them to fit.

    A 315/30/18, or 315/35/18 will both work on a 18 x 10.5" rear wheels, but it depends on the wheel offset if,or how much work will need to be done to avoid any rubbing issues.
    Also, I agree with above, a 295/35/18 would be a more practical choice.

    Ok I have a question Im looking at these c6 zo6 replicas...
    http://www.oewheelsllc.com/Wheels-fo...02230-3-1.html
    Would I be able to put a 315 on the rear with this offset? Im not looking to roll the fenders or anything but if all I need is to cut the bumpstop I can live with that. Also would the tire sit relatively flush with the rim or would it more than likely buldge out from the rim?

    Yeah, BFH Mod and trim the bumpstop/mount assembly.

    Wither the tires sit flush, or will have a slight bulge depends on the tire brand.
    BFG tires will have some bulge, and Nitto tires would be more flush.

    Well after looking at prices and selection of 305 and bigger I think Ill stick with a set of 295/35/18 out back. Either way its an improvement over 275 right? lol
