Who is using C5 Brakes and What is your Offset?
I'm hoping someone here can help me out. I've been trying to order rims for my '68 since Thanksgiving and am having no luck with the wheel manufacturer on the offset for the front wheels. The sales rep I've been dealing with has very little experience and keeps telling me he has to check with his manager when I ask him how he comes up with his numbers. He keeps giving me offset numbers that seem WAY out of the ballpark and, because my calculations are different, he wants me to sign off on them before I order. While I understand his position, I think that our numbers should at least be close. So, I'm turning to you guys hoping that some kind soul can help me out. I need numbers to compare for a sanity check.
I'm using the 13" 'Vette rotor and will be buying 18" wheels to clear the PBR caliper and valve stem. I want to use an 8" wide rim and a 245 tire. I would like to push the wheel out as much as possible to fill the wheel opening.
If you are using the C5 conversion (front), meaning a hat style rotor on drum hubs:
Question - What is your offset?
Question - What size wheel are you using?
Question - Do you have any rubbing issues?
Question - Are you using a spacer?, If so, how thick?
Question - Anything you'd like to add or warn me of?
Thank you for helping,
