Default Wide rear fitment question: World Challenge 19x12 +56 offset?

I have searched and did come across the posts explaining offset and tried to use the offset calculator link, but I'm having trouble visualizing whether or not these will work or not with or without a spacer.

The car will have 2" Corvette Creationz ride rear fenders. The wheels are 19x12 +56 offset LG World Challenge wheels with a 345 tire on them. Will these be too big or will they fit? How close to flush will they be without a spacer and what size spacer would be needed to sit flush with the wide rear fenders?

I appreciate someone taking the time to help!

With a 345mm tire and 2" flared quarters, the target offset you are after is 35-45mm, depending on how "flush" of a fit you are looking for.

So would the +56 offset stick out of the fender?

+56 would be sunk in compared to the target 35-45mm mentioned by FYRARMS.

More positive offset pushes the wheel in towards the car.

FYI, these are, most likely, C6Z-spec wheels. Most C5 owners with flared quarters that use OEM C6Z +59mm offset wheels run a 3/4" or 20mm spacer. That puts overall offset at +39mm, which gets the tire sidewalls pretty flush.

This is exactly what I am running.

Thanks for the good info everyone. The wheels were off of a C6Z. I already bought them and they are being shipped my way, I'll order some spacers in that size so I don't have to wait too long to get them on. Great looking car by the way Sportsman2003. Any other pics of it?

Of course. Just order wheels with the correct offset.
