    With a 10.5 x 18 you will need to go with a 295.

    I got 295's on mine. There is no issue with them at all. My boy has 315's on his SS, it rubbed a little, so we took off the wheels and took a hammer to the wheel wells. It has been fine ever since then, no rubbing or anything!!

    you can put 315/30-18 on them...
    That's what i'm putting on all corners for my street tires.
    I'm basically putting a 1/4" spacer in the rear.
    The wheels are C6 Vette 18x10.5... i'm thinking the offset is the same.

    18" Z06?

    Fixing to order some wheels & tires for my 98 Camaro and am a bit confused by all the info on this subject. The company I'm considering is OE off of E-Bay.

    Z06 polished wheels, 18x10.5 / 295-35 rear (56mm offset) and 17x9.5 / 265-40 front (56mm offset).

    Suspension is stock (for now)...

    Need to get some new rubber ASAP but don't want to order something that isn't going to work.

    What's the scoop? Trying to research this as much as possible to make things smooth as possible...

    Thanks!

    that will work.
    might still need a small spacer in the rear... if you drive aggressively.

    I ordered the Z06 set with 265-17 / 295-18 this afternoon from OE, they are in Sarasota about 4 hours from me. Will be delivered by Friday if not sooner. Will post pics this weekend.

    w/ a 1/4" spacer you'll be perfect... www.skulte.com sells them.

    That's 1/4" less threads available so I would get longer wheels studs...
