      Nope if i run 205/45/17 and 205/40/18 there will be only .8% difference. Well under the 3.0% recommended max staggered difference.
      so i should be in the clear.

      Oh, I see what you're doing there. I was picturing a smaller tire up front with a similar aspect ratio to the 18 (smaller sidewall that you've said you're doing with). Interesting.

      Silver doesn't look bad at all, but I say polished!! I'm glad to see you picked these wheels up for their right price. My buddy owns a corvette and can't believe people pay more than $100 for those wheels. You can't give them away to corvette owners. These are going to look good!!!

      yah idk to polish or to powder coat is going to be around the same price for me.
      and its okay...all i could find was jetta's too haha.
      i wasnt even gunna buy wheels this year but for $50 why not. prob gunna be a lil while before they get put on. need to save up for some body work first i think.
      dude i got them from had a 12s svt cobra, 11s camaro, and 10s vette all sugercharged. it was pretty nuts. said he had 20k into the vette motor.

      Flat army green could be sweet!! If they're 5x112, I don't remember corvette bolt pattern's, you'll need a pretty big spacer in front and rear. A 30mm in the rear would put it at ET31 which would be nice and then front 25mm would put it at +31, might want the offset a little lower though, but I dont even know if it's safe to run that big of a spacer up front.
      Also, based off what I've just looked up it's looking like 56 and 61 are the offsets on those sizes for sure, which you already know.

      that might need some pulling in the rear with a 9.5 at et20. I'm doing et30 in the rear with my 9.5, for example, still have to get spacers though.
