I am planning on buying a set of chrome ZR-1 wheels for my white 89. The problem i am having is.... I want to put 11's in the back but I'm not sure if they will stick out too much. Having a white car, i am afraid they will stick out and everytime i drive my car it will get really dirty from the tires sticking out and dirt coming off of them onto the side of my car. Any opinions on this?
Thanks for the input :)

Hey Raidmagic, Not to bother you about it too much but would you happen to have a picture of the back end of your car that you could send me? If so that would be great
Thanks.

Depends on wheel offset

the 87 older vette can use the 17x11 with the 36mm offset (same as ZR1) and not stick out.

on th 88-96 with a 36mm offset they will stick out and you will want a set of GS flares

Or get the 17x11 with the 50mm offset and they will line up to the fender edge

What size tires go on the 17x11's? is it 315/35/17? And just to make sure for the 9.5's ...275/40/17
