Wheel widening & offset

Is it possible to widen an 18x8 ZL1 wheel to 18x11? The 18x8 wheel has +27mm Offset.

Years ago I was considering widening stock wheels to keep the factory look and still get more tire under there. I got over that and just bought factory ZL1 wheels that are 20x11 and 20x10 and a drag pack for the strip. I've never heard of an 18x8 ZL1 wheel unless it's a repop. Lots of guys are selling Gen6 ZL1 wheels right now, so unless you have to have the 18s for racing, you are probably better off with buying them used. The ZL1 wheels are really pretty good. IIRC widening was nearly $300 a wheel.

I have OEM ZL1 wheels for my 1le. I saw the 18x8 on Phasteks website. Unfortunately the 18x11 on factory reps website are discontinued.

Just really want to keep the OEM look. Sucks the 18x11 got discontinued.
