crosslace rims on rear disc brakes

hey guys, I'm sorry if this is a topic that i couldnt find on a search......but i have rear drums on my 87 t/a and want to do a disc brake conversion....can i still use my stock rear rims or are they going to dig in like they would on front? or would they even look ok? do i need to go out and get another set of front rims?

thanks in advance

(btw, yes i know this is also posted in wheels, there was no response on that page so i figured i'd try my luck here)

You can use front or rear crosslace on the rear with disc.

ok thanks. do you know if the offset on the rear going to make it look way off, or still normal?

No, it will be fine. These are 17"s 4 fronts all the way around.

We use stock GTA 'cross-lace' wheels on our 92 B4C 1LE Camaro when autocrossing. I regularly swap between those and the factory wheels for the street. No fitment problems at all.
