4th Gen Suggested Wheel Sizes

A common question for the F-Body is “will this wheel fit”?

Remember that when you add weight to a part that has to be turned by the motor, it is far worse than adding weight to any other part of the car. The stock wheels are 16 inches (except for some models of the V8) because that provides a light weight with plenty of tire to absorb some of the shock from obstacles.

The 17-inch wheel is popular because it provides good looks with manageable weight. There is enough tire left on the wheel to absorb considerable shock from obstacles when compared to the 16 inch wheel.

Here’s what to look for:
