Hi,

Where are you located? I have 1 year old 17" ZO6 replica's from Lakeshore wheel and tire. No rash at all, they are pretty much new with 3k miles or so.

I frankly don't care for them on my Camaro nearly as much as I thought I would, and am looking to get 35th anniversary wheels instead.

Problem with staggered 18/17's is you can't rotate front to back. Our cars feather the front tires over time and you end up with tires that go "whomp whomp whomp" at low speeds.

I live in Ann Arbor / Detroit.

Thanks,

Todd

I would definitely stagger those wheels. Google Tomzwheels and check his wheels out on ebay.

Run 18" x 9.5" front and 18" x 10.5" rear . . . Sorry I absolutely HATE staggered diameters on F-Cars.

Oops, I think I was mistaken. I didn't mean to have different diameters. I meant different widths. Sorry

And with someone that has 18x9.5s all the way around, its not a bad setup but Im looking to do the 18x9.5 F 18x10.5 Rs now. Non-motorsport black Z06s vs my chromies.
