I can't say if they will fit but doubt it without lots of work... A 4th gen SS got 9" or 9.5" wheels with 275/40 tires except for the vert. Chevrolet and SLP felt a 275/40 was too much tire for the open top car. They almost didn't put the 275/40 on t-top cars as well...

I HAVE A SET OF 11" ZR1 WHEELS ON MY 4TH GEN AND THEY WILL FIT . I HAVE 315'S ON THE BACK AND MY CAR IS LOWERED ABOUT AN INCH AND A HALF BUT I CAN'T HAVE ANY PASSENGERS IN THE BACK SEAT OR THE WILL RUB. SO IT WILL WORK BUT IS A TIGHT FIT

TYMADI - turn off the caps! Sometimes, we sacrifice some functionality when we modify our cars. A lot of guys would just say they fit because they did it and not give the details. It's apprecated that you included the rubbing info along with they fit...

check out the wheel and tire section on www.ls1tech.com. a friend of mine had problems with the grandsport offset with 11" ZR1s on his Trans Am, but I do not know how they work on camaros. Personally, I have a 1999 Hardtop SS and I run 17x11 TT2s on the back with nitto 315 drag radials and I don't have any rubbing issues at all. I didn't have to roll the fenders either. I just bolted them on and started driving.

As close as the 36mm wheels are i doubt the 50mm will work . But good luck.
