Sweet ride. I'm going to do 24" irocs on my 94 but what I wanted to know was if you were willing to sell those stock alloys off of her? I'd buy them and I'd give you the stocks off mine for winter whhels if you need them

You have a very clean Caprice there. 265/35/22 tires will go right on there all around, and no higher than a +15 offset should be just fine.

That's what I had on my SS:

Very appreciated!! Can you please tell me what do the offset pertain to? What is the difference between a 10 offset and 15 offset?
You need to do a little research in the wheel and tire section.

Backspacing/offset are essential to the fitment of the wheels on your car. Higher offsets are generally for FWD cars, whereas RWD cars generally use lower offsets. Here's a chart to help; the numbers in white are the corresponding offset values in relation to the wheel's width and backspacing.

Don't remember. In the picture, you can see that it was in the teens. Look like a 16 to me. Assuming it was +16 offset, which would be between 5.75" and 6" of backspacing.

Not saying that at all. Actually, the lower offset would have the wheel closer to the fender/quarter panel. I think it's a safe bet that as long as your offset is in the teens (+10 to +19) that you'll be just fine.

So basically your saying 10 would provide the best look as far as l the "flush look"

I'm saying you should test different offset wheels on your car to see exactly what it is that you like. I like my cars to tuck the rear wheels, so I like for mine to be inside of the wheelwell.
