    rim question

    Can you run 18's all around on a 2000 trans am ws.6 w/o having to roll the fender wells to get them not to touch?? If so what sizes. I was lookin at some CCW rims but they only come in 18's so i was curious. Thanks

    Pulled off LS1 tech should explain it alot better than I can in my own words.


    http://ls1tech.com/forums/showthread...t=offset+wheel

    Bolt Pattern

    5 x 4.75" or 5 x 120.65 mm

    The numbers in the columns are as follows:

    WIDTH ..... OFFSET ......... WIDTH OF TIRE

    Front and Rear

    7.0" ..... +35 to +40 mm .... 215, 225, 235
    7.5" ..... +35 to +45 mm .... 215, 225, 235
    8.0" ..... +38 to +55 mm .... 225, 235, 245
    8.5" ..... +38 to +45 mm .... 235, 245, 255
    9.0" ..... +38 to +56 mm .... 255, 265, 275
    9.5" ..... +38 to +56 mm .... 255, 265, 275, 285
    10.0" ... +38 to +48 mm .... 265, 275, 285

    REAR Only

    10.0" ... +38 to +54 mm .... 275, 285, 295
    10.5" ... +38 to +50 mm .... 285, 295, 305, 315
    11.0" ... +45 to +56 mm .... 305, 315, 335

    NOTE: 315 series tires DO NOT fit 9" or 9.5" wheels. It will not be discussed.

    PLEASE READ @ 315's

    Z06 Corvette Replicas:

    17"x9.5" +50 to +56 mm no problems. 275/40R17.

    18"x9.5" +50 to +56 mm 275/35R18 or 285/35R18.

    18"x10.5" +50 to +53 mm. Higher than 53 mm will require the BFH mod. 285/35R18s thru 315/30R18. Over 295 may require rolling the fenderlip and will need the BFH. +58 mm is the typical available offset for the Z06 replica, which will require a little BFH and/or a small spacer.

    Y2k Corvette Replicas:

    17"x8.5" +56 mm

    17"x9.5" +50 to +56 mm

    18"x9.5" +50 to +56 mm

    17"x11" Wheels

    ZR-1 Style for Camaro +50 mm (Known as Grand Sport offset)
    ZR-1 Style fo Firebird +36 or +50 mm The wheel well on the "bird" is a little wider.

    American Racing TT-2's +45 mm

    With 17"x11"s there is always a possibility of needing the BFH and/or fender rolling mods with 315s. If lowered, an Adjustable Panhard Bar becomes a virtual necessity. Some have used the +38 offsets with an 11" wheel but it does stick outside the fender and is definitly not recommended on lowered vehicles. +50 and +56 are the two most common. +50 is the better fit (for the ZR-1 replica).

    For road race only applications a 17"x11" at all four corners can be made to fit.

    If you stay in the measurements of the chart betwee those offsets you will be just fine at running 18's on all corners

    its not the highth that makes them rub its the with and off set if you go taller you just have to go with smaller side walls. it sucks not being abile to get the wheels you want in the size you want, the set id like to have only come in 18's and up to

    Let me ask...

    I want to run z06 wheels

    18x9.5 fr with 275 tires
    18x10.5 rears with 295 tires

    My car is lowered, big time! sportlines.

    Anyone recommend an offset to prevent from rubbing? I have 275's all the way around currently and don't rub with zr1 wheels. Not sure what my front offset is however, and the rears will need to change slightly of course. what can you recommend?
