Here is the deal.. I currently have HRE 545's on my 2000 SS.. This is the same sort of wheel I would like to run on my next car (a 69 RS/Z28 dubbed project Z069 )

Question, I know the lug pattern is the same but what about offset, would these fit? they are 18x9 front and 18x10 back..

Thanks for the help

You can use wheel adapters, but I don't think they look quite right. The brakes are waaaay in there.

Stock 4th gen SS wheels are 17x9 and would require about a 2" adapter. In the front you would have to remove the inner fenders, the rears would be fine. 17x9.5 is the widest that will fit in the rear of a '69 without a mini-tub or jacking the car up and letting fender lip ride way above the tire.
