Next week I should be receiving my custom wheels. I took the 17X9 et55's and had them stretched to a 74mm offset (17X10.5). The plan is for stretching the tires from 255/40's to 295/35's (same outside diameter). Now I am sweating it out because I can't find anyone that has done this. I am thinking they might rub on the inside of my 1999 C2 coupe.

I measured more than once and it is going to be close. Worst case, I can put 7mm spacers in but I don't want too.

Anybody know is 74mm will work?

A machine shop in Monrovia California (Vaughn Machine) widens or narrows your rims applicable to your needs.

Not many will do Alloys. He is best known for his work on Bonniville cars. I don't track and don't need larger

rotors so I had a hard time sticking to 17" rims that would take the 295.
