I gotta set of C5 Corvette wheels they're all 18" is all 18" and they're so wide that they're striking the tire rod in the front even though I have 4" spacers for my Mini billets. What can a guy do to make them fit without them sticking so far out it looks ridiculous. Thank you fellas 1st time I've ever used This foru

I've got 17x8 C5's on mine with 2" spacers. Should have gone with 2-1/2 because the rub a bit at full lock. But how often do you turn that far?
I can't see how they'd hit with 4"spacers. Which sound a bit scary to me.
Looks to me what you have is 4 Z06 rears that are 10-1/2 inches wide and were never meant to go on the front of anything. They didn't use them on the front of the Vette. The Z06 fronts were 17x 9.5 and would work on your truck.
Sell 2 of them and buy a pair of fronts.

The backspacing (how far the wheel sticks out behind the mounting surface) on those Z06 wheels is a whooping 8.03 inches. It's no wonder they hit things. Stock S10 4wd wheel has 6" backspacing and they won't fit on the front of a 2wd.

Got this off the Z06 forum
Stock Z06 Wheel/tire size:
Rear:
Wheel size: 18 x 10.5
Offset: +58mm
Tire Size: 295/35/18
Back Spacing: 8.03” (204.05mm)
