I'm not totally familiar with late model Corvette wheels but if it's a solid cast piece like I think it is you can forget using them. I'm not aware of anyone who can or will change the offset on one-piece cast wheels.

I would choose an aftermarket wheel that you can custom order with the back spacing you need.

Good luck.

Frankly I am not going to touch the reverse offset wheel issue because I think you may have already ruled their use out. There is a huge risk with adding extra long wheel studs and big spacers. As to the tubular a arms, try FatMan Fabrication. I know they make standard width and narrowed tubular A arms. Good luck, and I would be interested in knowing how you resolve the wheel to hub connection.
