    Cat it looks like you might have to roll the fender lip and might have to work your way around the bump stop. I also had to beat in the fender well a bit. But it all worked for me. I ended up with 18X10.5 rears the rubbers were 305/45/18. They look alittle meaty but I like the look its exactly what i was looking for.


    Here's my thread on it.

    It also depends on if you are lowered. I am lowered and had C6 Z06 Deep Dish wheels on my car previously and they fit without problem. They were 18x8.5 F and 18x10.5 R.





    I am copying this from somewhere else. hopefully it helps.

    Wheel Fitments

    The numbers in the columns are as follows:

    WIDTH ..... OFFSET ......... WIDTH OF TIRE

    Front and Rear

    7.0" ..... +35 to +40 mm .... 215, 225, 235
    7.5" ..... +35 to +45 mm .... 215, 225, 235
    8.0" ..... +38 to +55 mm .... 225, 235, 245
    8.5" ..... +38 to +45 mm .... 235, 245, 255
    9.0" ..... +38 to +56 mm .... 255, 265, 275
    9.5" ..... +38 to +56 mm .... 255, 265, 275, 285
    10.0" ... +38 to +48 mm .... 265, 275, 285

    REAR Only

    10.0" ... +38 to +54 mm .... 275, 285, 295
    10.5" ... +38 to +50 mm .... 285, 295, 305, 315
    11.0" ... +45 to +56 mm .... 305, 315, 335

    if you want to maintain 17s, your best bet is buying aftermarket ZR1s. you can get those in 17x9.5 F and 17x11 R and there are tons of people that run those. the best part is they are deep dish

    Edit: or you can run 17x9.5s all the way around and get just about any vette style you want
