Next spring I plan On droping my Wanna be Xtreme at most 3" in front and 4" in back, I'll be using coils, leafs, shocks and possably spindles and blocks. With this drop I want to fit 17x8.5 in front and 18x9.5 out back the fronts will have about 6.4" backspacing and the rear, about 7.25" of backspacing. The stock tires, meant to go on this rim are, 245/45/17 and 275/40/18. ******what size spacers will I need and will those tires fit w/o rubbing?****** I was thinking 2" spacers :confused:

Yea, I know I am way off, but I got my heart set on these rims, they are stock off of another car and I really wanna make em fit
I know I can make the backs fit w/ spacers but I dunno about the fronts, I dont wanna give any one else ideas, but you can figure out what kind of car they are coming off if you think about it. Would 2" Spacers up front do the trick?

whats the difference between an adaptor and a spacer? I was told I need spacers to make 98 Camaro rims work, is that true?

adapters are bascially spacers that give you the option of using a
different bolt pattern. Example S10 has 5x4 3/4 bolt pattern and a
fullsize has a 5x5 bolt patern so you would need an adapter that
uses those sizes to fit the fullsize rim on the S10.

spacers do just that space the wheel 1" , 2"from its original mouting point.(yes you probablly need them to fit your camaro rims)

go here for tons of spacers and adapters www.truckn.com
