Only thing with that is the concaveness of the 10 and 11 inch rims, would be less I believe.

Also i think the oem ZL1 rims are less concave in the front. So would this be the same way?

While trying to figure how deep is the concavity from one wheel from another and using the dimensions of the stock SS, ZL1 and the ones listed by Factory Reproductions, I have put a drawing together to show all the dimensions. I was thinking to use this for myself, but then realized I may share this and maybe it will help some of the members here in their decision.

If I miss anything, please let me know so that I may correct it.

Doug, can you give us an insight on this matter?
Sorry for the late reply, I reached my “bump limit” yesterday before I made a single post - go figure.

To answer the “concavity question” I placed a straight edge from one lip of a wheel to the other. I then measured the distance from the straight edge to the center of the wheel (see attached picture). The results are:

OE ZL1 20x11 – 2.1/2”
FR Style 41 20x11 – 21/2”
FR Style 41 20x10 – 2 3/8”
FR Style 41 20x9 – 2 1/4”

As you can see there is ¼ inch difference in the (concavity) between the 20x11 and 20x9. Visually it is not very noticeable to me.

What I said to one person who I remember asking about the “concavity” is that there would not be much of a difference across the sizes.

Hope this helps.

Awesome Doug! Thanks!

For me, all I care about is that they have more concaveness than the stock rims, which they obviously do lol. As I said before, the aggressive offsets of the 9" wide rims

As for determining how the different wheel sizes and offsets will look in comparison to your stock rims, I like to use this site:

http://www.willtheyfit.com

Enter the exact tire and rim size you currently have, and the exact tire/rim size you will be going to and it will show the differences.

**UPDATE May 1, 2013***

We received a revised shipping manifest from our plant this morning.

There are no 20x11 polished finished wheels on the first container and limited quantities of the 20x9 and 20x10. The balance of the polished finish wheels should arrive no later than Mid-June. As soon as we have a firm ship date I will post it.

The other finishes in all sizes are still on track to arrive the week of May 22nd.

I apologize for not having this information sooner.

Should I do 20x9 on all 4 corners on stock tires? Or 20x9 in front and 20x10 on back on stock tires and when its time to upgrade get a fatter rear tire?

Assuming you currently have 245/45R20 front and 275/40R20 rear you can go either way. If you are looking to install larger tires when your current set wears out I suggest the 20x9 front and 20x10 rear.

A staggered set would be nice but when I have to replace my tires being able to rotate them would be nice too hmmmm

I considered this, but the extra weight of the larger rear rims, weight of the larger tires, and extra cost versus a 9" wide 275 tire doesn't justify it for me.

For my purposes, I don't need the little bit of extra rear traction either.

Wouldn't be able to rotate them.

Also, the 10" rear rims with their deeper inset won't poke out much further at all than the 9" rims with their +27 offset, so the look won't be much different from the side of the car. The 10" tire would actually stick further in to the car than stock and this 9" wheel so that would be the biggest change. (fatter look from the back)

These are just my thoughts for my purpose. Others may want the staggered rims. Either way..its going to look awesome.
