    I wouldn't go any bigger than 315's but you may have to do the bumpstop mod and the BHM on the inner fender for those 58mm offset wheels to clear.

    whats up with lakeshore wheels?????

    Ive been trying to get Lakeshore wheels to call me back for 3 days now and I get no response from their e mails or phone calls. their answering machine says they will call me back and I hear nothing from them. Anyone else had experiances with this company or know where I can get a set of C6 wheels for a Trans am?

    I can't list non-sponsor names, but do a simple Google on Corvette C6 wheels (try replica wheels too - there's a LOT of manufacturers out there that make wheels to fit GM performance cars.... you can find OEM wheels or copies at much lower prices)

    indeed...they do look goood.....filll up a lil more wheel well gap as well.......i really wish the previous owner of my car would of took into consideration wider rear wheels to accomadate wider tires.....he put fikse 9.5/17s at all 4 corners.....some 11s in the rear woulda been nice.....or 18/9.5s in the front and 18/11s in the rear .with some fat 295s like yours....way to expensive for me to wanna replace just the rears.....there liike 800 a wheel

    I think it also depends on how lowered (if at all) the car is. Mine's pretty lowered, so my 285/35-18 Nittos (at the rear) fit just right. Did have to roll the rear fenders in just a bit. But worked out for the best.
