I'm probably gonna get a set of 4 17x11 TT2's...

How ya like them if ya do?

I've read about some of the modification... modification to chassis/components is nothing new for me. :)

Pics would be sweet as well!

Thanks! :) :usa:

Why so wide up front? The new C6 Z06 doesn't have them that wide up front.
Out Back I understand

I heard of 10'S up front on LT1

very popular size for the autox and road racers. that is pretty damn wide for street up front. bet it will look awesome.

if ur on FRRAX, there is a whole thread for converting for us skinny tire folks

I run 17x10.5 CCW classics up front on my DD 98Z with 11.5s on the rear. no modifications were needed to run them at all and im lowered with konis and stock springs.

I'm not on frrax, i browse a lot though.. but I think they hide a lot of forums now to guests. :(

I want to run wide on the street for extra handling.. I REALLY love hugging turns at or below the posted speed limit. ;)

I have a drag race car that is built all out for the straights, and another vehicle I can daily drive as well.. so this car I'd like to build for some great handling.. :)

It looks like there is a buyer for my current wheels so that will kinda force me to go witha new set rather soon, or else I'd procrastinate forever.. I'll have to post some pics when its finaly put together.

Thats the big tire for skinny tire people thread right? I've read that.. many times. :) If I recall I have to shave a little bit of the spindle and some of the plastic fender well in front, no biggie.

Ok, my next question guys.

I'm looking at two sets of wheels on all 4's..
17x11 TT2's
17x10.5 TTM's <-- I just love the flat lip!

I want to run 315 tires all around..

What difference will I notice with 315's on a 17x10.5 vs 17x11's?? Handling/rolling??

I'm guessing I'll have a little more curb protection due to the tire sticking out a little bit.. but will the tire want to roll more on hard cornering?

Thanks!

I've seen 17x11's all around at road america a few times. Never talked to any of the drivers but it is just sick!!!

im rolling on 11's all the way around and DD it. i am running 285's on the front and 335's on the back. you will have to run 36mm offsets in the front or a 1/4 spacer and grind a little casting of the knuckle with the 50mm.
