    Time for new wheels!!!

    Man I hate to ask but I'm in the market for a new set of wheels for my 2000 WS6 and know the basics of my wheel(17x9, 5x4.75" bolt spacing and 6.875" back spacing). I have been checking out wheelsnext.com because they have a huge selection. I would like an 18 or 19" wheel, stock width up front and maybe a little wider on the rear. What I am asking is, what is the largest diameter wheel I can use up front with no mods to my t/a and what size wheel in the rear with out any rubbing? I know it is posted on here some where but I can not find it? The car is not lowered yet. I also do not know what tire size to run either, what ever I get I do not want any rubbing or bottoming out. What help you guys can spare would greatly be appreciated.

    After doing a little more research, I came across a wheel I liked that was a 18x9" with a 38mm backspacing, would this wheel rub? What tire size would be recommended? Thanks!

    i think that will be fine.. i have 18x9s on my car and don't have any issues.. the only thing is if the wheel has a core/spoke design that interferes w/ the brake caliper, ...but i think that only happens w/ some of the more radical wheel designs..

    I found a set of C6 wheels for a 2005-2007 vette. They have a +54 offset and they are a 18x9.5 size. What tire size will be the best for not rubbing? Thanks!

    275s would be ideal.

    245/40/18 on the front 18x8.5" wheels. I see rub marks on the fender liners, but I think that's due to turning the front wheels while going up my driveway which is probably 35 degrees.

    Ok, I visited the Oewheelsllc.com site and saw a set of C6 wheels that I like. 58Mm offset, 18x9.5 all the way around while using a 275/35ZR18 tire, I should be good to go? Does anyone have the part number for the chrome version without the rivets? Thanks!
