Default Will 19x12 rear wheels fit in the rear of a coupe?

Hi All

Will a 19x12in wide rear wheel with a 305/30 tire fit under the rear of a C5 coupe without rubbing or sticking out past the fender (non flared)?

In the front how about a 19x10in wide rim with a 285/30 tire?

Thanks

Why in the world would you try to put a 305 on a 12'' wheel!

Rim is too wide, you will need to tub and put a proper size tire on it (335/345).

I run a 285/30 on 10.5'' front wheels.

The answer is that it depends on the offset of the wheel. If you don't know the offset you can only guess or do a trial fit.

I agree with the post above that says 305 is an incorrect tire to safely mount on a 12" rim with the exception of a couple of Drag Radials I have seen ( Hoosier is one).

Thanks. I need to confirm this didn't make sense.

I am responding to an ad for the wheels and these are the tire sizes mounted on them. Seller said the rears fit under a z06 rear without tubbing and the picture does not have flares.

The seller could not tell me which type of Bridgestone Potenza's are on the car so I don't think I have a chance of finding out offsets. And of course the red lights are flashing all over this with the tire question so I have stopped asking questions and will move on.
