    I wonder if it was a change over from earlier years to a 2 piece then back to a one piece. My 01 has a one piece. I sure seen it enough lol doin' my custom exhaust..

    Yes they will fit.. I forget the offset if any. But usually what it takes to put that type of rim on the Ls1 f-bodies is the same things we need even though we run 6's... But why a 35? I honesty would'nt go below a 45 side wall. We're just too (front) heavy up there IMHO..

    If you want to make a 3800 sound good. Because they are low reving and don't sound right most of the time lol. Buy a 3" resinater(sp) put it directly after the cat, and dump it out the side with about 3 ish feet of 3".. It will be loud, but the motors low end torque actually gives you some control over how loud you are. Especially if it's a 5spd.. You'll have to square the pipes somewhat for clearance..
