Re: IROC Wheels

I think its because there diffrent offsets or widths. but i think i remember reading you can put front iroc wheels on the back but not the back on the front. Good luck

You are correct. The width is the same. It is the offset that is different. You can put front wheels on the back but not rear wheels on the front. If you put rear wheels on the front, the wheel will hit the caliper and wont move once bolted to the rotor. And this goes for the regular wheels as well. Not just the Iroc's.

Re: IROC Wheels

I'm talking about third gen wheels. I know for a fact that atleast the regular 91-92 wheels are also marked back and front.

Re: IROC Wheels

Okay so here it is. The back space on the rear iroc wheels are 4 7/8 and fronts are 4 3/8 ,so I put in longer studs and 1/2" space fixed the problem. I did this to the front so now I can use the rear one up front for now.
