Hello everyone I've been on the forums for about a week now and been reading all the stickies and trying to educate myself. Tons of great info. I've always been a chevy and buick guy and I want to get a RMS with the LT1. I've been planning the whole build step by step in which order I want to do things so I don't have to backtrack and change/redo things later. So to start to get to my questions I think I want to use 275/40r17 tires because I want a wide tire all the way around (and it seems to have the most selection). The wheels I want are American Racing AR500 in 17x9or9.5. The question is what would the perfered offset and backspacing be for those widths and width would be the wisest. I want the same size at all corners and the same size offset/backspacing on all wheels if possible? And yes I have readthe stickies on backspacing and used the search that's why I haven't posted anything for a week I just would like to hear from you veterans of bbodies so I can get some of your wisdom!
