16 X 8 IROC wheels
Date: September 20, 2019 07:44AM

I searched but could not find information about whether 16 X 8 IROC wheels would fit a late model. I know the bolt pattern is OK, but I'm not sure what size tires will fit.

There is at least one V8 LM guy out there that has them and seems to like the way it handles. Interested too as I may go that route.others may jump in here to comment .

I have custom 16x8 steel rallys on the rear of my LM with 225/50's and they fit. The backspacing is 5.25".

That is what most people typically do (and lots of people run the 16x8 IROC, or GTA wheels).

I had 4 rears on my car (its how the set I found was....) - and with the right tire size, no issues what-so-ever.

I've got a set with 245/45s on one of my cars.

I have the GTA mesh wheels which are the same specs. Here's my setup

+16 "rear" wheel on the front
205/55/16 tire

+0 "front" wheel on the rear
225/50/16 tire

I could likely fit the 225 up front on the +16 wheel, but on the +0 would require a heavy roll.
