    In my opinion...17's.

    A little work can make 315's fit on a 17" wheel.
    You can fit 20" wheels on these cars...but they don't look right to me.

    no sweat provided the offset is right.
    I have 17x11s w/ 315s in the front and will be putting 18x10.5 w/ 315s
    What wheels you getting ?
    you know the offset by any chance ? if it's anywhere +40 to +60, you will not have any issues.

    almost stock triple-black 2000 SS convertible with 17x11s on all 4 w/ 315s at the track or on the street with 18x10.5s on all 4 w/ 315s: (1), (2)

    I'm wanting the Dale Jr Killer rims from American Racing. You can get 18x8.5 for the front and 18x10 for the rear but I hate that staggered look and the fact it makes it near impossible to rotate your tires.

    Eugenio can you post some pics of your car to show how the wheels look in the fenders and a rear shot. i want my rears to fill the fenders like the fronts. i don't like the way the fender and tire aren't even.(rear) for example my rear tire is about an inch or so inside the wheel well in the back. before i get new rims i would like to see yours. thanks

    theres no issues with turning radius with 18x10s on the car as long as you get the right offset?

    exactly... i'm putting the 18x10.5 c6 wheels which are +56 or +58mm (don't remember off the head... brain fart.) but with a 1/2" spacer... should be perfectly placed as my 17x11 are in the pix.

    Might need a spacer depending on the offset like Eugenio said.

    [hyjack] How are the mods going Eugenio?

    I am in the in the process of creating a write up c/w pictures as I go along on installing seats (purchased Sparco's here in this site) as well as a bolt in roll bar c/w harnesses.

    Just wondering you have been doing with all the parts you had to install this winter? Are we going to see some pictures from you soon? [/hyjack]
