Alright folks, if you have any knowledge on my issue it would be greatly appreciated...
I have a 96 TA WS6 currently wearing 255/40/17's on a 17x8.5 C6 Replica Rim (unknown offset) on the front and 295/30/18's on 18x10.5 C6 Replica Rims (unknown offset again).
I just ordered replacements as the chrome is flaking on the existing rims. I ordered the same exact rims, except in the front I ordered 17x9.5 and have 275/40's I'm going to put on them. The offset is +58, which is actually 3mm beyond what the car's range is supposed to be, but it seems that is inaccurate because C6 wheels are very popular with Camaro's/TA's from this generation. Will 275/40's, Sumitomo HTR Z III's, fit on my front without rubbing?
Perhaps more generally, what is the means of determining how big of a tire (section width wise) can be put into a front wheel well?
