    how to order big rear wheel

    I have an 02 trans am WS6. I want to put steam roller on the back. I am sending my chromed factory speedlines to weldcraft to be widened. The guy wouldn't give me recs and told me to turn to the forums. The wheels are 17x9 now. I'm assuming that I need two inches to go up to the 335's but i don't know anything about backspacing, offsets, etc.

    Correct, 11's will work with 335's.
    1" hub spacers with the 17 x 11 would give you a +50mm offset, and 1.25" hub spacers it would be a hair less than +44mm offset.
    1" or 1.25" hub spacers is what you'll need.

    So, I simply tell them to and 2in to the inner side of the wheel. Do the BFH mod, roll the lip and add a 1" spacer on both sides to my stock 10 bolt and I have meat.

    With the T/A, you might not need the BFH mod. The rear wells are larger than a Camaro.
