    I am brand new to this forum but I must say it is the best, I am getting new rims for my 1977 camaro and I am not very knowledgeable of the fitment. They are C6 ZO6 rims that are 17×8.5 fronts and 18×9.5 rears. Both are +56 offset. The bolt pattern is 5×4.75. Will I need adapters? If so what size up front and what size rear? Thank you so much for all the help and feedback!!

    You're definitely going to need adapter/ spacer, +56 is 7.45" backspace for the rear and 6.95" for the front.

    On the back you could probably do a 1.5" adapter depending on the look you want.

    On the front you can use a spacer, I would put the wheel and tire on and use washers to move it out in increments until the tire stops hitting the sway bar at full turn. Then just measure your stack of washers to determine the spacer you need, probably 1/4" to 1/2".

    Thank you Curves! Why do I need the adapter if the bolt pattern is the same as my hub? Do I just get a 5×4.75 1 inch adapter or a 1 inch spacer for rear? Im sorry I am not very knowledge with wheel sizes and fitments

    The adapter is needed because a spacer that big will swallow up all your stud and you won't have any meat left to get a nut on.

    It keeps the same bolt pattern

    Again, depending on the look you want.....

    I would go with a 275 on the rear and a 245 on the front.
