I know the questions about tires have been asked plenty, but here goes another.
I just bought a set of z28 wheels off a 95 camaro. Will they just go right on or will I need to get wheel spacers? They look great and are wrapped with z rated tires. Only paid 280 with shipping so I think I got a pretty good deal. Let me know. Thanks for your help getting my car back on the road. All I have left is putting the interior back in!!! Its been 2 years of work(really more saving up for the next few parts)!

You'll need spacers. 2.0" for the front (1.75" may work nicer, depending on your front end height), 2.25" for the rear.

the ride height is stock right now, but that is one thing i would like to change within the year. How much should I spend on lowering and how much should I spend. I know I dont want to use lowering blocks.

I'm using 1.75" adapters with those rims, you can see how they fit in my pics.

I have some chrome 5 spokes off of a 99 Z on mine. They look GREAT! I used 1.75 on the front and 2.25 back. I think 2 inches would be a little better for the back, as they seem to sit in too far. But if you plan on upgrading to ZR1's or something a little wider in the future, the 2.25s would be better for the back.

These guys sell them as well http://www.nastyz28.com/ubb/smile.gif
Some guy on ebay has cheaper ones, but I can't vouch for his quality...
