Due to the "reverse mount" of the 20x10.5 wheel, if I want to eleminate the spacers, I have to run 10" wide wheel. I know your Pedders Camaro run 19x10.5, did you have to add spacers? I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and sacrifice 1/2 inch just so I don't have deal with dumb spacers. By the way, I was (past tense) going to run 20x10.5 all the way around. The other option I was given is the step lip outter but thats not the look I'm after. Performance wise, yes the step lip would be better. But I'm also going after the look and the option of step lip outter would make it look "cheesy". If you don't have an answer, anyone? Trying to figure out this wheel and tire combo is a PITA and its becoming very fustrating.
Forgeline did a spectacular job with the fitment. My wheels do not use spacers.

To make sure I reply properly, tell me if you would be running a spacer in both the front and rear, just the front or rear?

I was informed that the fronts will need spacers not the rears. So now I'm utterly destroyed that I cannot run 10.5" up front but settled with the 10" wheel in the front. We are suppose to have a discussion with Forgeline monday on 10.5" fronts. But I'm ok with 10.5" in the rear and 10" in fronts and that was my original plans. I just have to run a staggerd wheel setup of 295 and 275. This wheel and tire combo is a nightmare and only slept 4 hours last nite trying to figure out why we need a spacer. Still makes no sense, since you can run a 19x10.5 and I cannot run 20x10.5 setup. Its hard to visualize, need to see a wheel in order to understand more clearly. Probably something simple.

the offsets of the front are in fact different than the rear. There are no spacers on the Pedders Camaro. Both front and rear are 10.5 inch wheels.

I wonder why yours works and not mine. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say its due the 19" wheel instead of 20". Does it really make that much of a difference?

I think it is a limitation of the thickness of the hub material. There just in't enough so a spacer is used to push the wheel out a bit.

I just got word on monday that they could do it and it was going to take an extra 2 weeks. I was like AWESOME. 2 weeks is nothing. Thanks for the info, though.
