16x8 5x4.75 wheels with 13 mm offset and 5 in backspacing. will they fit the front

I'm wondering if it will clear the front fenders with a 245 50 tire on them.

Will they fit the front of what vehicle?

If you mean a 4th Gen Z28, the stock 16x8.0" wheels have a 55mm offset. The 13mm offset will move the tires toward the outside of the fenders by 1.65". That would typically put the outside edge of the tires about 1/2" outside the fender line. Fender lip is going to rub on the tire tread when you hit a bump, and when you turn corners and hit a bump, the tire will rub on the inner fender liners. Will adversely affect the handling. Tread being outside the fender will pepper the rocker panels with gravel.

Always puzzles me when someone posts a question, signs off after posting it, and never comes back, at least for the last [edit] 38 days, to check for an answer.
