Track/Race Fitments

These no-compromise fitments are ideal for dedicated track / race cars. They rely on aggressive negative camber specifications and often require rolled rear fenders to prevent rubbing. Since you'll be using all available real estate under the fender arches to accommodate these wide wheels, coilovers with linear race springs are a must for inner clearance (JRZ, MCS, Ground Control, AST, Moton, etc.).

Square Setups

Recommended for most types of street and performance driving. Allows proper front-to-rear tire rotation to extend tire life & improve handling balance

  • Front and Rear: 18x10.5” ET22 with 305/35-18 tires
    • Direct fit
    • 295/35-18 and 295/40-18 tires can also be used as a direct fit
    • 5mm spacer required up front to clear MagnaRide Dampers
    • Grinding of the front steering knuckle may be required to clear the inner barrel. See below
  • Front and Rear: 19x10.5” ET22 with 305/30-19 tires
    • Direct fit
    • 295/35-19 tires can also be used as a direct fit
    • 5mm spacer required up front to clear MagnaRide Dampers
  • Front and Rear: 19x11” ET25 with 305/30-19 tires
    • Direct fit
    • 5mm spacer required up front to clear MagnaRide Dampers
  • Front: 19x11” ET11 - 305/30-19
    Rear: 19x11” ET43 - 305/30-19
    • This fitment produced with Camaro-specific center bore. No hubcentric rings required. Available early-mid 2019.  
    • Direct fit
    • This is an aggressive fitment, negative camber required front and rear to limit poke. Z/28 flares recommended.
    • Since the ZL1 is equipped with the bulkier MRC suspension, it is important to note that if you dial in camber at the spindle, you will have inner strut clearance issues up front. 5mm spacers would be necessary. If you dial in camber with adjustable camber plates, no spacers required.

Additional Fitment Information

Steering knuckle clearance
Certain widths and offsets in the 18” diameter will require you to grind a small portion off of the front steering knuckle. Below are some pictures of the problem areas. This is only an issue with wider 18” wheels as the inside lip of 19” wheels will fit over the top without issue (click images to enlarge).

Concavity & Face Profiles
Each of our wheel designs is available in two or three different levels of concavity, which we call Profiles. The Profile is dictated by the width and offset, meaning wide lower-offset wheels will have more concavity, while narrow higher-offset wheels will have less concavity.

Available Face Profiles
