    Questions about wheels

    1. Would 16x8 tires fit 17x8 wheels?

    2. I would like to buy a set of TTII's or Cragar SS. What would the bolt pattern be and is there anything else I need to know about it?

    Thanks

    In a word,no. You cant put a 16 inch tire on a 17 inch wheel.

    well if you want the same rolling diam. of the tire you can use 245/45/17 front and 275/40/17 rear. when you order the wheels they should come in one offest and one bolt pattern when you tell them the vehicle.

    Why would you want to run 245/45/17 on the front and 275/40/17 in rear? Why not just run 275/40/17 on all corners like the SS or Firehawks!!

    1. Would 16x8 tires fit 17x8 wheels?

    No, a 17x8 wheel needs a 17" tire

    2. I would like to buy a set of TTII's or Cragar SS. What would the bolt pattern be and is there anything else I need to know about it?

    -Well, first off the wheels would be 17x9 or 17x9.5
    -The bolt pattern will be 4.75" x 5 and I think the offset would be like 54mm or 56mm(dont hold me to that, can't remember off the top of my head)
    -When you order them you can just tell them the car they are going on and they should tell you the correct wheels to order.
    -I would suggest to get 275/40/17 tires for all corners like the SS & Firehawk come with from the factory, it makes it easier to rotate the tires that way.

    I wouldnt suggest 275 all around. Yes you cant rotate but you will notice not only easier to turn the wheel but better turn radius and price of tires.

    I have 285/40/17 BFG KDWS on 9.5x 17 with 56 mm offset on a stock 2002 Z28. No issues. Check Costco for the tires. Like $145 each.
