Default Question about torque thrust 'll on ZR-1

I kind of like the look of the polished torque thrust ll on the Z......Anybody know the exact size and backspacing for the stock tire size?

I see summit has 17X11 and 17X 9.5......Will these sizes fit or the back spacing needs to be different...??

Curious.....Anyone running these on there Z? Maybe you can upload photos....

Thanks..

Standard offset is 56mm front and 38mm rear. The wheel sizes you quote are the standard size. Rear 17x11x38 can be difficult to find. There have been several Zís with Torque Thrust IIs. Looks fantastic. I believe most went with 18í or split 17/18 even 18/19. Something like this I imagine...

Yes I believe you are correct.....18 inch in the rear at least with a C-6 Z06 tire size would look right...You could get away with the standard in the front...

I agree

These look nice. I especially like the deep dish.
