19x12 ZO6 wheels on a 97

Picking up a set of factory 2010 Z06 Spider Wheels today the have 18"s on the front with 245/45's and the rears are 285/45's will these fit my 97 with spacers only or will I need to do some cutting and hammering? If spacers only, what size? Thanks in advance guys. This is a 1 of 1802 Z4C cars so I dont want to be cutting on it..

Re: 19x12 ZO6 wheels on a 97

You sure you got the tire sizes right? Those are huge diameter rear tires, typically used on light trucks and SUV's.

FRONT:

Stock Z06 fronts = 18 x 9.5" 6.82" backspace, 275/35-18 (25.6" diameter)

The 245/45-18's are 26.7" diameter

Stock diameter on a 4th Gen Camaro SS is 25.7"

The wheel/tire you listed will fit in the front with no spacer, but is too large diameter. And, a 245/45-18 tire should not be mounted on anything larger than a 9.0" wide wheel.

REAR:

Stock Z06 rears = 19 x 12.0" 8.82" backspace, 325/30-19 (26.7" diameter)

The 285/45-19's are 29.1" diameter

Stock diameter on a 4th Gen Camaro SS is 25.7"

The wheel would required a 3/4" spacer to move the wheel/tire out to the point where it won't rub on the inner fender liner. That will put the tire about 3/4 to 1"" outside the fender lip. A 29.1" tire you listed will not fit in the wheel well..... way too large diameter. And, a 285/45-19 tire will not fit correctly on a 12.0" wide wheel. Max width is 10.5".

The rear tires would stick out about 1" more than these:
