    Welcome to the forum!

    Might I suggest you do a search regarding wheel sizes used on C-bodies. There are people here that have rims greater than 15” diameter. There are also offset details in these posts. I am not interested in such a large wheel, so I am unfamiliar with the details, but do remember seeing posts regarding larger wheels. Post some pictures of your car (s)!

    I don’t know why it won’t let me see the image. That’s stinks.
