    ZR-1 17x11 Question

    I bought the ZR-1s from a friend of mine, the fronts are 17x9.5 and the rears are 17x11. Before putting them on i looked on the inside of the rear wheels and it said 17x9.5...but the tires are 315s which are 12 inches. Is this just a misprint or something because i dont think 315s would fit on a 9.5 and the tires dont hang too much over the wheels. Thanks for any info.

    There are obvious differences between the wheels, give us pics. hang over any more than the front tires do? Is the recessed area where the lugs are deeper than the fronts?

    315s will fit on a 9.5" wheel. It's not safe, but they will mount up. Sounds like you got 4 17X9.5s.

    Take a tape measure and measure the inside width of the rim...is it 9.5" or 11" You'd definitely be able to compare the known 9.5" rims you have with the ones in question to see if they're the same.

    things are kind of crazy right now but ill have sum pictures up ASAP. so as it looks for now, it looks like i have 17x9.5s on all corners? the rear tires only stick off the rim by about .5 inches on each side, which would make the rims 11 inches right since the tires are 12 inches? shits confusing

    i just measure the inside of the wheel, lip to lip and i get 11 inches and i measured tire hangover and its right at .5 inches so i guess there 17x11s...but why does it read 17x9.5 on the inside of the spoke?
