Factory Corvette Grand Sport, 18X9.5, 295-45-18 Nitto NT-05 tires. Tires are very close to 275-40-20's. Fronts are 5 pounds each and rears are 10 pounds each lighter than factory 20's. Fronts require grinding steering knuckle, cutting off about 1/3 of the roller skates, a 5mm spacer for tire sidewall clearance with the strut, and ET (extended thread) lug nuts.

I love these rims.... What front offset did you get? I am really considering these for street duties.

Hmmm I like the look of 18's! Too bad it doesn't seem like anyone is buying 45th wheels.

AngelSpeedFreak,

Grand Sport factory front wheels are 40mm, same as Camaro 20" rear wheels.
