    I have no idea on backspacing or anything for those wheels. Price is certainly attractive though and there is a very similar style aftermarket wheel that does look good on TA's.

    They fit, common as Vette wheels on TA's

    They will fit but u can find way better rims and tires for $400.... u can find older corvette rims 18's if thats the size ur goin for with way wider rims and tires...... my gramps got a 94 vette with 17x9 fronts and 17x10.5 in back with 285 front tires and 315's out back
    ... u can prolly find a set for around the same price and have a way more aggressive stance and more grip...... u might pick em up for resale good price for brand new tires not to mention resale on the rims themselves

    If ur goin drag radial I would go 17 18 inch....... I dont know if u like big rim look are not? But plenty of room to play with..... I got 20x10 inch rims out back with a 315/35 tire its a tight fit so I cant use a drag radial at that size

    Me to drag racing is that sh** thats why you run a wide rim and wide tire in the back for more grip.... 18' inch by 11 inch rims out back are ideal for are cars running drag radials... I was jonny on the spot for the 20's I got the offset of the rims are perfect if I was to order 18's (like I was goin to) I would have paid upwards of 1600 to 2 grand. ... I picked those 20's up for $750 with good tires there tsw light weight rims...not to get to far off topic I was just stating dont count bigger rims out when it come to performance
