    do you know what kinda car the came off of. if the offsets are for a vette you will have fitment issues in the rear.

    yea you are probably going to have to use spacers to get the wheels to fit

    The stock 2007 C6 Corvette wheel offset is 56mm in the front and 79mm in the rear.

    Front tires: 245/40/18 or 255/40/18

    Rear tires(largest): 295/30/19 or 295/35/19, and get a set of 30mm H&R hub spacers.

    FYI, you can probably use a 305/30/19, but the smallest width recommended is a 10.5".

    you're going to need a big spacer in the back for them to look right. as far as rubbing goes a small spacer will do but it will leave the wheels looking all sucked in unless you use a big spacer.
