Stock SS Wheels Finally Widened and ON!

Hey guys, so I finally got my widened SS wheels on my '10 Camaro 2SS. I got them done by Eric Vaughn who must have done a great job since they didn't need much weight at all to balance them. Anyways here's some pictures, sorry only iPhone for now. I'll bust out my DSLR later and take some better ones. Let me know if you have any questions! Thanks.

I would assume that was to remove the unthreaded tips from the factory wheels studs. If you don't grind them, they'll stick through the adapter/spacer and hit the back face of the wheel.

What size adapter is that?

Oh that's right. I had to do that for the spacers I had on a 4X4 a few years ago.

Yeah the grinding is for the unthreaded part on the studs. I got Toyo's 315/35/20 in the back and 275's up front.The spacers are from ADM performance and I'm not 100 percent on the size but i believe it's 22mm? I also put some spacers on the front that are like 1/4 inch but I'm debating on if that's large enough.

ADM's spacer is 25mm. Since you're running a 25mm spacer, I'm assuming you had you factory front 20x8" rims widened then the factory rear 20x9" put in front?

Yeah that is what I did. I don't think you can notice the dish size difference that much on the car since the wheels are powder coated black. I will say that there is a huge difference in how it drives now. I've always had a problem with the way the car tracks especially on the freeway. You always had to do a lot of correction just to keep the car straight. Now it feels a lot more stable and you can just kinda hold the car in the direction you want to go and it goes that way. The front end feels tighter and less "light" for lack of a better word.

Is this the widdest tire/wheel size you could go? Also, would it be possible to see some before/ after pics? I'm seriously considering doing this and would like to see what it looks like. I want to keep as much as I can under the car and not outside the fenders.

Thanks you guys. I believe 10.8 is the widest you are supposed to be able to go. Some people do 10.5. And I definitely didn't want to go any wider than a 315 on that size wheel. Anyone that's done this know what a good size spacer is for the front. I still feel like the wheels are tucked more than the rear in the front.

Also I have a set of original SS wheels with P-Zero tires with about 8500 miles on them if anyone is interested. One has a bit of curb rash but other than that in pretty good shape. Only thing missing is the tire pressure monitors.

It was around 600 for the widening, somewhere between 300-400 for the powder coating. Tires were 1500 mounted and balanced etc. And I think around 120 for the spacers or so. Some of the stuff I ordered so long ago so it's hard to remember exact figures, but that's an estimate. Oh and I bought a 2nd set a wheels off craigslist. that's why I still have my stocks with the tires on them if anyone is interested PM me.
