pintodave Posted June 22, 2018 Report Share Posted June 22, 2018 So, figured I'd throw this out there to see what everyone is running for wheels, I know it has been discussed kind of randomly in other threads. I'm thinking of a group buy or something if there is enough interest.... Stock 17" 4th gen wheels run in the 52-56mm offset range, I've personally been running the 84-86 Vette Specific offset of 38mm in a 17 X 9.5", this pushes the wheel out approx 5/8" over stock per corner. I feel it has been working well, the wheels are still flush to slightly tucked so no issues with them poking out. What type of offset are you 3rd gen guys running? Here is my issue - those 38mm offset wheels are getting very hard to source, on top of that they are only cheap import wheels. I've never had a problem thus far, but it would be nice to step up to a mid-level priced wheel for safety and quality concerns. I do have a damaged one I need to replace, my other option is just get a 9.5" wide in the incorrect offset and make a spacer for that odd-ball. Not the worse thing in the world. BUT - Enkei will do custom pattern sizing for very reasonable (or possibly for no additional charge) but the catch is you have to buy 10 sets. Is there enough interest out there in F-body land to make this a worthwhile idea? I was thinking the RPF1's (see pic). They'd come in at about 16.5 pounds per wheel and I'd trust them a ton more than the cheapy imports, they retail in the low 200's. I'm still researching other custom mfg. options as well. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
