Thinking about buying some vette wheels the bolt pattern is right just want to make sure nothing will rub.

Are those wheels gonna be the same size as factory wheels for C6 vettes? If they are I honestly don't know if they will rub or not. But if those are 18's or 17's x 9.5 replicas then yes they will fit no problem and look awesome too. I got those wheels 17 x 9.5 size on my SS and let me tell you they are SWEET looking.

They shouldn't rub. I had replica Z06's on my 00 Formula that were C6 offsets that were 9.5. This thread will prob get moved to the wheel/tire section

To be 100% sure you need to find out what size and offset the rims are. There is a chance you will need to run wheel spacers and or hammer the inside of the fender a little bit depending on the width and offset of the rim

The fenders are plastic... I dont recommend taking a hammer to them, the inside lip on the quarters... Now thats a different story ;-)

They will definitely rub in the back. I have em' on my car and I could get the back on by "massaging" the rear fender well with a BFH. Now I have 1.25" or 1.5" (can't remember) spacers on the front and back. This bring them out to the fender wheel and they look like they should.

I also had to roll the rear fenders once the spacers were installed with the Eastwood Fender Roller.
