    [QUOTE=MrSunshine;77050]OK. Thanks!
    I'm having a difficult time figuring out the right offsets to get a "flush" fitment. I'm going with staggered front to rear as well. 19x9 up front & 20x10 in the rear. Getting the proper offset is critical to the tire fitment & overall look. Vette wheel specs don't "seem" to work very well from what I'm finding so far. (Again, for a flush to the fender fitment.)[/QUOTE
    I had the same concerns , but when my wheels were ordered it was my understanding that the offsets were set according to the vehicle and wheel size , my wheels werent from a warehouse full of wheels or off of some other car , my wheel (offset) was custom for my car . The wheels are flush mounted and there is decent clearance in the rear . I read one reply for carid ... I didnt order my wheels from there instead I ordered them locally , so once the wheels arrived and I didnt like how they fit , I could reorder new wheels and just send the others back without a hassle , I was fortunate and very happy that the wheels fit as expected .
