I haven't posted any pics yet of what my stock wheels look like after I dropped it with the Eibach's, so here it is. I am hoping I can find the TTM's in an 18x10 or 18x10.5. As soon as I do, I am buying them. I am going to put on Nitto NT05's all around. I was thinking 275/35/18 on the fronts 18x9 and maybe 295/35/18 on 18x10's, (if i can find them). The front offset is 34 and the rear is 45. My stock offset is 55. So I think that will bring the backs out 1"-1 1/4" and the fronts out maybe 3/8". Please correct me if I'm wrong.WS.6~LM Exhaust w/quad SS tips~Lowered w/Eibach Springs, Bilstein HD shocks, UMI tubular LCAs w/ relo bracket, UMI adjustable on car PHB~UMI front 35mm/rear 22mm sway bars~UMI 2 point SFCs~UMI STB~Volant CAI~Diablo Predator Performance Tune

I didn't add the increase in rim size for the 10 inch rims, in that case you would have another inch to take into account. figure you would have to add .50 inches to the amount of distance the rear would stick out

Does anybody know if the Boss 338's will fit on our cars wit the 5x4.75 bolt pattern. I saw them on one of our cars, but on the Boss website it does show the right fitment. I don't get it. If not, these are my two options. Im looking for opinions on which way to go. TTM's 17x9 in front and 17x 10.5 in back or C6 ZO6 deep dish replicas 18x9 front 18x10's in back, both chrome.

Here are pics of them on other cars. Mine is NBM.

So I decided on the c6 zo6 deep dish replicas. Two more decisions to make while I wait for them to get in. They are back ordered a month.
1) 18x8.5 in front with 18x10.5 in the back or
17x8.5 in front with 18x10.5 in back
2) what size of nitto nt05's to get with them

Option 1: 255/35ZR18 front-295/30ZR18 rear
Option 2: 255/40ZR17 front-295/30ZR18 rear
That's my guess.

go 9.5x 18 or 17 up front with 275's 8.5s look really thin. IMO

I agree, 8.5 looks real thin. The front should be 9 or 9.5 on our cars, unless your looking for that 1/4 mile drag look! They won't corner very well either especially if your going wide on the back. 275 up front 315 in the back is the way to go.

That's exactly what I was thinking. From what the salesman was saying, the front 8.5 wheel has a 34 offset, so it wouldn't go under the car any more than it is now. Does that make sense. I would hate to get a wheel that look thinner than it does now. Thanks for the input. I will check to see if they have it in 9.5
03-27-2013, 06:33 PM #53
so the c6 zo6 I will have to go to a 17 to get 9.5 wide. So it would be 17x9.5 in front and 18x10.5 in back. Does anybody do the staggered diameter front and back? do you guys like the way it looks? does anybody have any pics of the setup? i appreciate any body that can help. it has been such a spain finding wheels.

Don't like the way those DD C6z06 wheels look in 17"s. If you go to oewheels site you can find plenty of pictures in the trans am customer showcase. Or visit the oewheels thread on ls1tech and find hundreds of pics and probably answers to most of your questions.
