    will this fit

    I have a 98 ss ls1 camaro I have 17x9.5 rims with 275/40/17 all around. I was thinking about staggering it so putting some 18x11 with some 315/ tires in the back and leaving the front will I have any issues with the fit in the rear wheel well? Need more traction but drive too much to put street slicks on.

    if the rears are +50mm offset, and 315/30-18, you'll have no issues... same as fitting 17x11s
    I have 315/30-18 on all corners.

    how would I check what the offset is and do they hook up alot better?

    usually a spec of the wheel.
    same thing for the 18x11... although the offset is calculated from the centerline of the wheel to where the hub mounts on the wheel.
    Most wheels will have numbers printed or casted on the inside of the spokes.
