Your car come without fender lips? Regardless if it did or not, it will rub a stock rear lip and possibly the bumper bracket.

As for the front, can't help you there. Never tried a 285 up front. I have 18x9+42 up front and have about 3mm of clearance from the strut with a 275. So, with 20x9 +35 and 285 tire, you'd be in about the same ball park on inner clearance.

inner lip of the wheel is the exact same as the stock 19x8's so the inner should have zero issues, its the outer im worried about. where is the bumper bracket at? I would roll the lips if they were in the way.

Raw was refering to the fender lip,not wheel lip. A 265 35 20+35 is going to stick out almost an inch more than stock. No issues on the inside.Will most likely rub if lowered or with extra weight. Most run +45to+50 for wider rear tires/wheels

Not really. I think they look better on a G8 than a camero. However,I dont care for the sizing or weight.

I think you can find OEM cheaper than the replica's on Camaro5 Forum.

The replicas i have are the same 20x9 +40et I think you need to talk to some one with more knowledge at your discount tire... And I run the 285/30 out back and 255/30 front very rarely rub

650-800 + shipping for OE, you're not shopping very hard.

LOL, if you want new though, Reps are your best bet.

the factoryrepoduction 20 x 9 are et 40 and are around $700
So different brand, different offsets. That settled. 20x9 35 do rub with 275/35 tires. I can tell you that for sure, check my sig. The 265's will help your cause a little but as said before, I see a fender roll and bracket trim in order. I'm rolled and I still rub. I'm doing some grinding this weekend to hopefully clear once and for all. Good luck.
