Default Sawblade Fitment Help!!!

Hey everyone. Im new here, I was referred here from nam. Im getting a set of corvette sawblades off my friend. Im looking around to find some adapters. The wheels have an offset of 56. I know minis are around 40 I believe. What size adapters will I need to have this setup work with my coilovers? I found some from adaptec for about 170 a pair. But I need to know what mm adapter I should get. I can get anywhere from 18mm-30mm I believe. If anyone has any other places to get adapters let me know!! thanks for the help! Also how much camber will I need to run to get this to work? And will I need to cut anything?

Ok, now Im confused, because on nam, a guy said i would need almost 34mm, because he saw a guy with 9.5in rear wheels and he had to have an offset of et22. Also have alot of other people run these wheels or wheels this wide on minis before?

Go out, take a wheel off, and do the math.

willtheyfit.com Is a good resource for the math.

you'd be better off getting two sets of fronts (8.5's) them being 17's. Just my opinion

Yeah, I thought about trying to trade the rears for another front set. Just to make it a little easier. And for doing the math, Im just looking to see what width adapters Ill need, So I dont order the wrong ones and waste money.

Update on all this! I ordered my adapters from motorsport-tech.com! I highly reccomend them! Great to deal with, helped me with all my need. I got 28mm front adapters, and 34mm for the rear, I will be running a 28 offset in the front and a 22 in the rear. Ill need about -2.5 to -3* camber in the rear. Probably somewhere between -2.5 and -2.75. The adapters should be here in about 2 weeks, in the meantime, Im going to strip the paint off the wheels and polish them. Also Ill be removing my rear wheel arches and trimming the inside lip and also bending or cutting the metal lip and the quarter panel.

for the sake of reference can you put in your widths? offset means nothing without all dimensions....

et 28 on a 7" wheel is miles away from et28 on a 9.5" wheel

the wheels are 17x8.5 fr and 17x9.5 rear. So in the front Ill be running 28mm offset and in the rear Ill be running 22mm. According the willtheyfit.com and some self measurements this will be the best setup for a daily because I wont need extreme amouts of camber. Also had a lot of help from RETR0spec.
