Are you talking front or rear? I've got 16x9.5" rims all around on my '96 Z-28. The rims have 6.75" backspacing, and clear everything. In front, upper a-arm clearance would probably be your first concern. In the rear, either e-brake, trailing arm, or inner fenders would be close.

See the stickies at the top of this forum. There is a lot of useful info in there. Especially with respect to this question. One guy has created a wheel chart to give you an idea of where the wheel will end up widthwise. Very useful.

You might have to do a little BFH work to the inner fender. Other than that, they'll fit fine.

Which wheel are you looking to go with? That will make a bigger difference when it comes to caliper clearance.
