you NEED spacers....2.25" or 2.3" for the front, and a 2" or 2.25" for the rear.This if for any 2wd s10. Now if you had a 4x4 s10 the wheels would bolt right up with out any spacers.

And corvettes have 9.5" on the back and 8.5" wide in the fron, you should do the same to minimize rubbing or else with a 9.5" wide rim on front your going to rub.

No this is what corvetts are
Front 17" x 8.5"
Back 18" x 9.5"

There is no such thing as far as i know as a 18" x 8.5"

Im pretty sure Im right....but just look around and see what you can find. I never looked into corvette rims so I didnt research it all that much, i just read posts in s10 forum all day long and I have seen A LOT about corvette rims.

Allright so it all depends on what year corvette rims and what style. They are all going to be different.

here you go. if you got these, these will bolt up just fine with no spacer. What you need is between a +10 mm or +15 mm offset with about 5.5" backspacing. Take a look
