4th Gen wheels on a 3d Gen camaro

I have found 4 - 4th Gen camaro alum wheels. Are these a fit on my 92 RS with the F41 susp and 235x55x16 wheels and tires? I've seen spacers mentioned but I haven't used those since my VW dayz.

Or does anyone have a set of 18's for a 3d Gen?

Re: 4th Gen wheels on a 3d Gen camaro

No one has 4th Gen wheels???

just a question... not much help from here.

maybe if i wanted to put a detroit diesel in a 2.8 body someone would know how..

or put some Kenworth 22's on it

Ask a question about stock camaro tires and wheels and stump the panel.

When I put them on I'll come back and let everyone know. Gotta go search for camaro sites now...

Re: 4th Gen wheels on a 3d Gen camaro

The reason most people havnt posted is because it have been asked many times over and over again. I personally dont have 4th gen wheels, but a quick search for "wheel spacers" should bring up hundreds of posts.

If I recall correctly its like 2" spacers in the rear and maybe 1 3/4 in front.

Oh yeah welcome to the board.

Maybe you should read the sticky.

Maybe you should learn to learn to use the .

Maybe we have answered that same question, 5 BILLION times over the last 16 years and wish people would stop asking & try to find answers for themselves.

Another thing...'18 x 9 aftermarket' doesn't give us enough info to say anything, unless they have offset the same as stock wheels.

Let's speak clearly, or not at all......

Yes they will fit, with adapters, just like the VW Wide-5 Bugs used (Parmetta knows what I mean).

Without adapters, they won't fit. On the rear, you need adapters if you run a stock 3rd gen rear. Put in a 4th gen rear & you won't need adapters in the rear.
