Are you hoping to use 10.5" wheels on front AND rear? That's alot of wheel to tuck under the front.Old threads are broken of course. I want o know what kind of adapters i should use for 18x10.5 on my wagon?also with extended studs would i be able to race on them?thanx
I was wondering if the 18x9.5 Corvette Z06 Wheels They are all the same size. The offset is +56mm. There not the real ones That's why I think that there all the same size.
But my question is do you guys think they'll fit Impala 94-96
Here's a C6 wheel post from Rustic racing:Zebrafive
You would need adapters to go from your current 5 on 5" to 5 on 4 3/4". the adapters would need to be about 2" thick. If I were doing this I would not order adapters until I had wheels "in hand" to verify the thickness of the adapters needed, since they would have to be custom made, read $500 or more. My REAL concern is if the wheels would be strong enough for the weight of our cars, I bet they are cast, not forged. Check and see if there is any kind of guarantee.
Sorry I didn't call you back last night... I had a couple of guys come up to pick up a few motors and they didn't leave until late.
I looked at your situation... with a +73 offset on a 10" rim you should be at 7.876" of backspace.
If we are shooting for 5.75-6.0" backspace for the wheels to fit nice... a 2" adapter looks like the answer. That would put you at 5.876" backspacing. I would rather stay at 2" because if they are a touch too thick you can always machine off 1/16 or 1/18 from the back... but if they arn't thick enough there's not much you can do.
Let me know if this looks like it'll work for you and we can get started on the order.
Lots of forum members have used this guyWhere could i find some adapters for a good price?
Hey Rob, nice to see you survived Ike last year. Life has been crazy busy and I haven't raced since the Bay Bottom Crawl in October of last year. Haven't finished the motor up, either. Wonder if I can find that thread in Google's cacheLooking good Scott Do the speed tech arms have the greasable control arm bushings? The stock ones I put in last year are already trashed.
They still having the autocrosses at Homestead and Calder?
I run with the BMW club at the Houston Police academy. They use they road course and set it up w. bigger cars in mind. We have had the last two months off due to the heat but will resume in sept.
How's the motor build going?
