17x11 Weld Wheels?

I have been waiting for months for the replica wheel companies to tell me they are producing a 18" ZL1 replica wheel for drag racing. Most say they are considering it or it's in the works. I am not confident it is going to happen anytime soon so I am moving on. I want a wheel I can use on the street as well as drag race. I have been told Weld 17"x10" RT-S fit. Weld says I have to change lower control arms. Others on this forum say they fit without modification on a ZL1. I want to know is there any reason why I cannot order a 17x11? (Our factory wheel is 20x11) Would there be any significant performance benefits to a 11" wide if I can make it fit? I plan to run a M&H 325 45 17 drag radial either way.

From what I have heard from Weld and Bogart, the 17" wheel, since its a smaller diameter, will not have the same rear spacing as the 20" wheel. The 1 inch difference is on the inside, with the outer dimension being the same. I have wondered about getting the same 17x11 and having the extra inch sticking out instead of worrying about hitting on the inside. Plus it will make the wheel look deeper than the front.

Keep me posted on what you end up doing.
