    This right?

    so i just bought some c6 zo6 rims, and the front is 18x9.5 and the rear is 19x10...as for the tires, would 245/40/18 and 285/40/19 be a good fit for these rims?

    Not sure but on my 18x9s I have 275/35/18. Not sure what the dims. of a 245/40/18 are but they seem too narrow and too tall. But I am not an expert in tires.

    I Just looked in the wheel pic section and there are guys running 245/40/18s up front.
    So I would say you are on the right page.

    Front: 275 or 285/35/18s
    Rear: 275, 285,or 295/35/19s

    Your tire height is going to different by 1-1.4" from front to rear, but this is the only way IMO to have a staggered wheel diameter that looks good(rear sidewall height > the front sidewall height).

    i've been lookin into getting staggered rims and thought about 18s and 19s. i've read some people say it hurts the performance of the car, this true and how much? and also with 18s and 19s are you going to need any spacers?

    the biger the wheel the more power it is going to take to turn it so yes you will lose some but you wount be able to tell on the street. if you go to the track put your stockers back on and you will be good.

    The easiest way to do a staggered height set-up is to run the same wheel size front and rear, but with a taller tire in the rear.
    For example:
    275/35/18s front, 275/40/18s rear.

    or

    275/30/19s front, 275/35/19s rear.

    Here's my car with the 18s example:

    I've got air bags in the back, and that's about my normal ride height in the rear.
    The front is about 1/2" lower now, from what the picture shows.

    looks good. im thinking of going with 18s and 19s. you had to do any mods to it to make it fit? i've heard theres mods cause of the sidewall and i wanna go with 18s and 19s but i want em to fit good

    If you know someone that's good at rolling fender lips it wouldn't hurt to error on the safe side. If you really need it done all depends on the combination of wheel width, offset, tire width, factory or adjustable PHB, and if the car is lowered or stock height.

    I think the 40 series is way to tall of a tire. Thoes are some big rims man. I would prob. go with a 35 dont know anything about a 30 series. What about maybe a little bigger in back "295"
