Will 17s fit the Z51 brakes? Thought you needed 18s.

Weld RTS S71 17" have a barrel of 16.44. My current set up is American Racing and the barrel is less than that. Its touching the caliper. I need to find out more but it looks like it might work.

13.4 Is the rotor size. If you had Z06 or the Gran Sport you need 18".

Jim, what size and backspacing are your rear wheels?

I have read Corvette guys running c5 z06 wheels (17x9.5 I think) up front with the z51 upgrade but then also been told 18" is minimum so I'm guessing it all depends on the wheels
