I have spacers just in case but I also have the strut tabs ground down a bit... so I likely will not need them ...

-3.0* camber front and -1.25* rear for folks wondering

Where did you source the spacers? I've got the same rims coming but only for street use. Track camber settings will be with oem rims/tires.

Dont think you will need spacers as you have DSSV on your car. The regular ZL1 doesn't, hence the strut tab grinding and possibly the need for a small spacer.

Lets hope so but just in case I'd like to know where to get a good quality spacer kit. (spacer and extended lugs)
Similar to H&R Trak+ kits. Unfortunately they don't do them for Camaros.

I picked up a set of Dorman 610-490 studs.
Let you use up to a 15mm spacer.
Available at better local parts outlets.

I bought some Amazon ones.


However check my profile for threads but I ended up doing Gen5DIY/Moreno camber plates and ran 19X11 +11 fronts with NO SPACER (just some minor strut tab grinding) and -3.0* camber with the plates installed.

Again... will be using OEM street settings with the new wheels and there "may" be a need for spacers. For track I'll be using OEM wheels and tires so I can play around with camber etc with no worrys. (Until I feel the need for more! )


Regarding Amazon spacers, without looking myself, are there reputable items there? I've always been impressed with the H&R Trak+ quality and fit & finish but like I said... no Camaro fitment.

Use the 3mm ones on there so the C5Z 18x10.5 I ahev drag radials mounted on fit on the car no prob

Used the same one previously up front - No issues.

Please excuse me but I’m a little confused after reading through this thread. So if you can somehow get OEM ZL1 1LE wheels they will fit our SS 1LE as long as I am using no more then the factory track camber/alignment which I am on which is -2 front -1 rear.

Conversely if I get aftermarket wheels, Let’s say Forgestar, in 19x11 front and 19x12 rear what would the offset be to fit w/minimal poke or z06 guards?

Yah I'm a little confused too. If I run the track alignment per the manual, will ZL1 1LE rims rub or require spacers on my SS 1LE?

The fronts will rub without a spacer but the easy grinding on the struts / strut mod removes the need for a spacer. I am at -2.7 front with OEM ZL1 1LE wheels with no spacer but struts have been ground. Do a search for strut mod or whatever for pics.

Ok so Rears will just bolt up following the GM Track alignment, and the fronts will either need a 3-5mm spacer, or grind away. Time to dig out the ol grinder. Thanks!

If I am just running the Track Alignment per the manual, would i need to run a 3mm or a 5mm spacer up front? If I dont need 5, id rather just go with 3

Also, how many threads will I lose between 3mm-5mm spacers? Biggest concern is if the 3mm is enough for stock ride height with the ZL1 1LE wheels on a SS 1LE
