Hey Ya'll

I am thinking about buying some iforged rims. The only problem I have seen so much about the correct rim size, the correct wheel size, this is best for racing, this is best for performance. I am confused as to what I can put under a z06 without having anything rub or getting spacers.

My only suspension mod is bilstein sport shocks. Otherwise wheels are stock as well as tires. I know that 17 x 9.5 (front) and 18 x10.5 (rear) is stock. Should I deviate from these sizes and is there an advantage to it.

Thanks for any and I mean any feedback. Rims are expensive and I do not want to get it wrong.

It would help if you outline what exactly your looking for in a new set of shoes.
Straight line traction, road racing, bling effect etc.....
Your goals will greatly effect which sized rims/tire combo will best suit your needs.

Oh, sorry good point. Well b/c iforged wheels can be pricey at least for my budget I was thinking about keeping my stock F1s on for tires. But otherwise bling effect is out b/c I do not want some monsterous rims crammed under that I have to mod the car just to put on. Straight line traction is slighter higher on my priorities than road racing even though I do that also. Sorry if I sound picky, what do ya'll think would fit my needs (I mean wants :jammin: )

You cna easily fit an 11" under the rear with a 305/30-19 (Speaking form experience). I also know a couple of guys running 325's without problems.

If you're getting iForged wheels, you're going to want to keep them for your pimp mode. Use the stockers or a dedicate set of wheels and tires for the track. I would say if you're going to spend the coin, get at least 18/19's and make it pretty. If you need more info on iForged, feel free to drop me a line as I work with them quite a lot.

Aloha, Dave

Alright this is sounding good 18 on the front and 19 on the rear. I don't think that I can afford to get new tires at the same time as new rims as these will cost me about 4 x $1000. So I may just stick with the stock 9.5 and 10.5 widths. Am I correct in the price for these rims hyper black with a polished lip? Thanks.

Width 10" on the Front 11" on the rear. Diameter 18/19 all 19's 19/20's whatever floats your boat. :z:

Just as an FYI, the salesperson I spoke with at iforged indicated that they do not make a 17" rim - the smallest you can get from them is an 18" rim.

Shop around such as Ebay or on the For Sale forum? Any other suggestions for places.

IT L GO quick question why 10 on the front and 11 on the back. Is this a handling issue, camber issue, or other?

Do I need an offset for 18x10 and 19x11 FS Flux, and how much of the polished lip can I have before worrying about clearing the stock brakes? Thanks!

EFI-1 I e-mailed you.

More a fitment issue. Anything wider on the front and the rims stick outside the fender. On the rear you can probably go to 11.5 before it starts to look hokey. :z:

Ya I can't get onto the site now. Too bad I can't remember what that lip looked like. Could you post a pic of it.

Keeping the stock width on the front rim but increasing the width in the rear by .5 in will not create any hadling or camber issues will it?
