Can you safely have wheels widened? I have the z06 deep dish wheels in chrome and love them. Want to keep 18" size but widen them 1" to run some fender flares. Is this possible?

Not worth the $$$, buy new rims.

If you wanted a bigger backset, then maybe.

Could go with a spacer.

Yeah, I was looking at the spacers. I think Rockyf150 said that he runs spacers on his. I can't get the wheels I want in sizes over 10.5" for the rear. I am not going to pay $5000 for a set of rims like CCW's either. They are totally not worth it in my opinion and I am not going to polish them every month either. I want to stick with chrome and like the deep dish look wheels too versus the regular Vette wheels.

Yes contact Weldcraft wheels. A lot of C6 guys have our 18 inch wheels widened for the track.
