    wheel spacing questions? Need Help

    the fiero wheel is 14x7 and has 5" of the rim behind it and says its 57.1 offset according to the internet... I need to bring my new wheels out 4'' camaro and mustang wheels are 70.3 offset
    and i found corvette rimas that are:

    Front width 9 1/2"...rim depth 7 3/8"...tire height 25"
    Rear width 10 7/8"...rim depth 8 1/8"...tire height 26"

    will that bring the rim out at all?/ will i still need spacers if so how thick?

    you doing it backwards a 0 offset is the dead center of a wheel. 57.1. would be a small lip and 70 would be an even smaller lip. what you need to do is head more negative. 4 inches is 101.6mm so 57.1-101.6= you want a wheel with -44.5 offset

    Correct!
    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.
