    what torque thrust should I get 17'' or 18''

    hi, I have a 2001 SOM camaro SS. I plan on buying some chrome torque thrust rims A.S.A.P. I dont know if I should go w/ 17'' or the 18''. I plan on going 275 on the front and 315 in the back. I am also going to lower the car a bit. do I have to run low profile tire in the rear? or normal tires will be fine. will I have to use spacer?

    I would also like to know if I installed a 17x11 in the rear using a 315x35x17 would it rub if the car is lowered 1.5 all the way around.

    Although on a Camaro I would probably go with ZR1's over TTII's. Just me.

    One thing to keep in mind, 18" tires are more expensive than 17" tires and there are less choices in 17s as well.

    Im shocked that so many are choosing the 17's. Usually people are leaning toward the 18's due to bigger. I know you can get a wider rear with the 17s which is a big incentive but still. I have been tossing around whether to get 17" or 18" C6 wheels and cant decide whether the extra 400 bucks is worth the bigger rims and tires (exact same width). Tough decisions considering the money spent.

    I'd go with the 17X10.5's, just so you wouldn't have to worry about rubbing and possibley messing with the odometer readings and what not.

    I went 18x9.5 all around seeing I wanted a set for street and my car is a DD right now. I'll run a good drag radials on the stock 16's if I ever get to drag racing. I would run 17's if I ever do autox. So I guess get the ones that best fit what you want your car to do.

    Bigger isn't always better.

    Just my opinion, but 18's are a touch too big on the 4th gens.

    This is what a 17x11 w/315's from a different view...can you say "c" hair?
    But I get no rubbing or issues or than this closeness
    Keep in mind I have a T/A and I hear maro's are a lil different in the rear 1/4 area so, YMMV.
