    who makes a good spacer to use when running 315's and how much of one? I want my wheels to stick out far enough to clear, but not way the hell out there. Where do i send my 17's to get widen?

    If you had the wheels widened, then they had to add the 2" to the back side of the wheel. Therefore the wheel is going to tuck inside the wheel well 2". You will need a spacer without a doubt.

    I put on 17x9.5 ZO6 replicas with 315 and I only had to remove the bump stop and grind back the bumpstop mount and i have no clearance issues, with still at least 5-7 threads left for the lugs. Didnt have to hammer fender wells at all.

    When we put our 17X11's/315s on we had to lift the car and then jack up the rear axle to clear the bumpstop to get them onto the lugs flat. The back side of the wheel would hit the bumpstop with no weight on the axle, but with the rearend loaded they fit fine.

    Because you have them on 9.5" wheels.
