    I think you have to shave the brake calipers to make 15s fit on an f body. Not sure about which ones though.

    i'd recommend against a wheel that makes you gring the calipers, if you're using the car on the street.

    almost stock triple-black 2000 SS convertible with 17x11s on all 4 w/ 315s at the track or on the street with 18x10.5s on all 4 w/ 315s: (1), (2)

    Sorry, I can't help with the off set.

    To keep from having to grind the calipers, go with Greg Weld Wheels. They will clear. Not sure if the 10" wide wheels have hit the market yet, you'll have to check stock once you get the correct offset.

    Here is the link to his site:
