Post up your F-Bodies with Corvette wheels!!

This is a discussion on Post up your F-Bodies with Corvette wheels!! within the Wheels and Tires forums, part of the General Help category; It wasn't a kit. I bought the parts, modified the spindles, and did the swap. About $1,000 or so total ...

    It wasn't a kit. I bought the parts, modified the spindles, and did the swap. About $1,000 or so total in the project parts with the rotors, calipers, brake pads, brake lines, long lugs, spacers, adapter brackets, etc.

    I'm going to ask the question here, if it doesn't get answered I will post a new thread. I put my back wheels on (with no tire to get a idea of how they will fit) They hit the bump stop. They are 03 Speedline OEM Z06 wheels which are 58mm offset and 10.5 inches wide and 18 inches around. Can I cut the wheel well out or is that structional support for the car. Any help would be nice, so I can get pics to you guys asap

    10.5 or 11 wide should be 50mm. the 58mm is corvette size. you may need to run a spacer. if so let me know i have some.

    dunno if people are for or against this but i have wheels that have the vette offset and i simply cut out the bump stop on one of my old camaros. i always drive carefully so i was never worried about bottoming out.

    How big of spacer and how much would you want for 2? Would I have to upgrade my wheel studs? I thought about cutting the bump stops but I'm a super NOOB when it comes to this

    Ok, I just did some google research and found someone that put a 7/16 spacer with ARP studs with a 315 tire and no rub or anything. I'm going Nitto and they run slimer so I should be set 1FastCamaro do you have 2 7/16 spacers because I will buy them off you And does this info I got sound correct.

    Z28boy2000-Thanks


    blackSS01-You should get the tires on the rims first, test fit them, and measure the space from the back of the rim where the studs will go through to the rotor. That will tell you how much of a spacer you will need, and how long of new studs you will have to go with, if you will indeed need longer studs. No sense in guessing and getting the wrong spacer and studs.

    I've heard that TA's and Maros can have different issues for wheels fitting

    Excellent price but 1/2 inch may be a little too big. Let me do some more searching.

    All I can really find is that 7/16 spacer worked for some guy with 315's and that 1/4 inch worked for some guy with 295's but it rubbed on the outer lip. That really doesn't make any sense, since 7/16 are almost 1/2 inch I was wishing this wouldn't have happened. I just wanted them to bolt right up.
