I am looking at a set of wheels for the wagon. What offset do I need or can I get away with?
Great info as usual Navy!!Yes, it's +6mm (toward front/outer wheel surface), and the SS wheels fits wagons, no problems.
9.5" is the "standard" overall width measure for a steel wheel that is 8.5" bead width. The Impala SS wheel is actually a shade over 9.625" lip-to-lip.
Backspace works out to "about" 5.06", based on rim inner bead shape & thickness.
If you just disregard the bead dimension, and used 9.5" as overall rim width (which isn't accurate), it works out to 4.75 + 0.24 = 4.99".
I did the math and had the manufacturer double check. They agree. Currently running 8.5", 6mm offset, 4.99 backspacing Impala wheels. The 8" wheel with 0 offset will look almost exactly the same as the Imp wheels.You could run a zero offset with the 8 0r 9 inch wheel. I successfully ran some 20x9's with 0 offset for a few months. It was close, but it cleared with no rub.
Vision 141 Legend 5 in Gunmetal..........What wheel?
I agree Matt, but the 8" wheel should be almost exactly the same as the Impala wheel on the outside. 3/4" spacers would blow the budget!!If you go with the 19mm offset you can add spacers to make it perfect. If you go with 0mm and it rubs that would be disappointing and there's no where to go.
Very nice firewood. I have made a decision to go the other way. I just bought a pair of new Impala wheels and just replace the damaged wheels. I will clean the old wheels up over the winter and see if they can be salvaged.You'll be fine. Listen to the voice of experience. I have tried more wheels on my wagon than most people will ever buy.
The 0 offset is fine!
But before you buy those, might I suggest

Tim,...if I go with a 8" wheel. It should only set me out 6mm, if it were 8.5". With the difference in the width of the wheel (1/4" on either side) it should be just about a wash. Does this make sense to you?

It matters to know what the width and offset of the C5 wheels ("rims") are that you are using. If they are OEM wheels, the data can be found on the back of the wheel in pockets on the hub, typically, or somewhere on the spokes.I just ordered 2inch spacers for the back of my 95 and had my C5 rims drilled to 5x5. I just don't know how much I'll need on the front?
