    Like he said he's looking at OEM c6 wheels based on the size. For those he will need adapters like mentioned, and like also said they aren't spacers. Spacers sit between the wheel and hub. Adapters bolt on the axle and the wheels are bolted to the adapters.

    I know, my grandfather got a fancy set of adapters for his older style Lincoln town car so he could fit the newer style Town car rims...and they looked great...right up until one went flying by him on the highway after the studs broke...(yes they were torqued) So I can't imagine what 300+ rear wheel horsepower would do to these "adapters"? I personally never cared for Vette rims on Camaro's and even less on a Pontiac...but to each their own. We all have our individual taste.

    well with the adapters it is recommended to get hardened wheel studs

    for the C6 OEM wheels with to fit a F-body; 1.25" spacers are needed for the rear only. Fronts with fit.

    i had seen that. i just wanted cags to to have the correct answer. 1" spacers were recommended which are too small. And 1.5" spacers were recomened which are too big IMO.
    not have to filter through pics of c5 rims, replicas and stories of grandpas ride. Lets keep it on topic.

    1.25" hubcentric spacers are needed for OEM C6 Rear wheels to fit on a f-body (running stock tire size of 285/35/19)
    Front OEM C6 wheels will need nothing (stock tire size 245/40/18)

    well i dont think there should be any more doubt to the answer to the OP's question.

    I think letting someone know they're dangerous to run is on topic. Hardened studs or not.

    And my statement still stands...be a little more creative with your choices of rims...Corvette rims belong on Vette's...not Camaro's.

    I agree with you a hunderd percent bro on the adapters. Im scared of them things. Im glad i dont have to used them. Just think making anything over 300+ horsepower it got to be scary.

    im not scared of adapters myself. if you buy a quality product i dont think there is nothing to worry about. the shearing point of a bolt is about 60% of its tensile strength. im not exact on numbers but a structural bolt half inch or bigger will holt about 600lbs of shearing force. and theres five of them. im not afraid of quality adapters yet on the opposition; i dont like the idea of spacers because you are moving the nut towards the end of the stud.
