    I PMed Ls3Rs the same sentiment and questions, then went ahead and got one. Very happy. Had been eyeing the OER 2 3/4" hood, but was worried about too much rise...

    ESR SR12s:

    F: 18"x9.5" / +22mm/6.11" - 12mm/.47" spacer = 5.64" effective backspace / 275/35R18
    R: 18"x10.5" / +22mm/6.61"- 20mm/.79" spacer = 5.82" effective backspace / 315/30R18

    Haven't driven the car, but see this thread for similar specs. I haven't put any camber in the front yet, but will do -1* or -1.5*, and it should clear fine even after I lower it a bit (and use button-head Torx bolts for inner fender). I cut the inner lip off and slightly flared the rear wheel openings - the rear will settle a bit more once the car is complete and after some time as the (PTFB Comp) leafs are brand new.

    I really wanted 315 out back. Worst case, I'll move the fronts to the rear and get 8.5" / 245 or 255 for the front, which should fit no worries at all, even slammed.

    Love that wheel. I too lack imagination. It just seems right on our cars. If I had deep pockets those would be with me.

    Hi, I know this question will get a lot of back and forth, I went to order the rims, and the guy is saying that I should look at the 9.5 in the rear instead of the 10 inch , I think that a 18x10 with a 5.75 backspace will fit the 71 Camaro rear space, I am having a rearend build , however, it will be stock width , these rims , the ones I posted, you can change out the barrel for about 300 so if I go with a mini tub, later, then I can go wider , anyways, will a 18 x10 with a 5.75 BS fit, with just a tap tap tap on the seatbelt humps, I look forward to your answers,
    Thanks

    From my experience a 10 inch in the rear requires your fenders to be rolled, but I have no issue with the wheel rubbing. I have 4.25" back spacing though and they barely don't rub

    Unless the product page is completely wrong.....yes

    I'm running a 15inch rim if that matters, my tires are pretty fat though (275/60/15) so I might not have big rims, but the tire size certainly fills up the rear.

    If this info sounds completely wrong I'm sorry, I'm just going off spec sheets that I have of what I've bought.
