Post FYI big brakes upgrade and 4th gen wheels
I had to switch to thinner ( from 2" to 1.25")spacers since it pushes the wheels out that it rubs the wheel well. I also had to grind the tie rod, and a bit off the Koni yellow struts to clear the wheel.

C4HD brakes -13" rotors
17x9 Bette offset
275/40/17
1LE hubs

You'll love those brakes. I did it a few years ago and was shocked at the improvement!

I run C5 z06 brakes and 1.75" spacers with 275s and the fitment is perfect. Tires are basically flush to the fender with my 17x9 SS rims (c4 zr1 style)
