    18x9.5 Vette Replicas

    Looking at a set of 18x9.5 'Vette replicas to put on. They're in a +56mm offset which is just right correct? Should be fine with them in the back and front?

    Superbee, what size rims are you running?

    Just checking to make sure I'll be fine with the offset and everything. Thanks!

    9.5 i think are to wide for the front. my syclone will pull on the smallest crack in the road. i would say 8" wide is perfect for the front.

    You should still use 2" spacer adapters in the rear cuz it will really show that the front sits wider.

    2in spacer would look awfull dude, with 5 in drop and staggered tire sizes, back is flush and front sticks out maybe 1/2in, so its not really noticable.

    mine are 17x8, and im with syclonekid, i was going to say to get a 8in or so wheel for the front if at all possible.

    Where'd u get staggerred tire sizes from? He didn't say N E thing about getting the 11" wides 4 the rears. 2" is how much farther the fronts stick out than the rear unless u have a ZR2 rear axle. I haven't seen 18's N E skinnier yet, not even the replicas. Kinda stuck with the 9.5" wide less u drop down to 17" rims.

    He doesnt have to, he can run staggered sizes on same size rims.

    im usin 17x8.5 in the front and 18x9.5 in the back. mine are black z06 rims. the smallest tire width i could get on those rims up front was 235. the tire still kinda sucks in off the lip somewhat too. i run 285 in the back and only rubbed every once in a while before i cut down the inner quarter lip. i do have to say the corvette rims look pretty damn good with my new ssbc calipers and rotors :D

    haha. it always reminds me of a hot wheels car when people run 2wd wheels on a 4x4.

    scrappys truck would look sick with another couple inches of drop and or sidewall.
