    Wheel widened or wider wheels?

    Do these look like stock size wheels or do they appear widened? I think the vid and pic is of the same car.

    Wider than stock, or it may have 3/4 to 1 inch spacers. I had 1 inch spacers on the back of my SS with 9.5 inch z06 wheels.

    This is noob:

    Why does it matter if the wheels are wider like 10" or 11"?


    ....I have 8.5" all around.

    Does that do anything like a better launch or is it just for looks?
