Default Wheels and Tires Question

Tried searching and cannot get a straight answer. I have a 2005 base convertible. Can I use a set of grandsport wheels with 325s in back and 275s in front or will it rub or require an offset. Have a line on a nice set and wanted to see if it would fit, stick out and any pics if anyone who has done it. Thanks.

They will stick out a fair amount. They are a lot wider than the base wheels, with a different offset.

Agree. I just put Z06 rear quarters on my 05 and 325's is what I use. I have seen 305's on the base but no larger. 275's on the front will work with special offset wheels.
