      Regular tire size: 255/30 19

      If you're low or want stretch: 245/30 19 or 235/30 19

      Depending on how low you are, you could run a 20mm or larger spacer.

      If you've got a friend with some spacers lying around try test-fitting the wheel with the various sizes to see how it will look.

      You're definitely going to need spacers to clear the front suspension uprights with that offset. If its a narrow-body car then 20mm will be too big, but 10mm will probably work

      I figured 10mm spacers since I don't have a wide body c5, I believe my 18s were et35 with 225/40/18. As far as tires I thought they would be 235/35/19? Correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks againg for the help.

      am currently running 235/35 19 with 10mm on the rear and 5mm on the front ,the spacers only are requied if you have the 2.7 package or the bigger brakes .... lowered on st's ..
