odd you run the same offset front and rear. id rather be closer to the caliper in front and back then the same
I do not know why Jon at Best Wheel Deals said what he said about the offsets but I have these very same wheels and the offsets are as follows: front ET +35 and rear ET +54.

C'mon guys. Front offset +54? Really? I'm confirming both [Front and Rear] of our custom machined Z28 wheels will clear over V brakes. Isn't this the bottom line?

Just got my new wheels on. Big thanks to Jon at best wheels for great communication and a very timely delivery.

The OEM Holden center caps do fit and lock in nicely. They just are a bit thicker so they sit about 1/16th above the lip of the center cap.

Big Thanks to you as well. Car looks amazing. If possible, post or send more pics. And great info on the caps!

Matt black installed finally on wifes ssb today were christmas present, went with 295 rear as my 305 once in a while rub the inner fender liner, seems the bead protector bulges out more on the 295 vs 305 so didnt gain anything going down a size. Just touch installing but when set on ground they just clear, went for a ride and doesn't appear to be touching but time will tell. They do look great though!

Both cars look great. Thanks for info on 295 vs 305. I was wondering if the bulge was normal and my 295 do rub slightly. Will go with 305s in future if no real difference in rub and look better.

I saw these rims on your site although listed for a CTS-V

Copy of CUSTOM: Copper Z28 Replica 20x9, 20x11 Complete Package

I was wondering how the fit would be on a 2014 SS? I believe the 2014 sit a bit lower stock and are more prone to tire rub at stock height, so correct offset is more critical? They appear to be 2-3mm different then the wheels on this thread.
You want that exact setup? I got you covered; we can make it fly, as it will be custom machined. Don't forget, trouble free fitment is essential for us, so perfect offsets are always critical. Please email me [email protected] so we can continue this dialogue. Thanks.
