Which corvette wheels to buy?

This is a discussion on Which corvette wheels to buy? within the Firebird / WS6 forums, part of the Vehicle Specific category; Hey OP, since you wanted a more "original" wheel, I would've suggested C6 Spyders.... But I suppose it doesn't matter ...

    Lots of nice suggestions on here. When I first got my car, I thought about "upgrading" my wheels too. But the factory, WS6 wheels have grown on me and I'm just going to keep them on.

    I've been checking around everywhere and no one seems to offer the 18 inch torq thrust any longer, american raising quit making 18's. Does anyone one have any suggestions? I've tried AA, Eagle, E-bay and just about everything in between!
    My stock 17's are fine I only put 2-3K miles in the spring and summer, but I think they look kinda chezzy, maybe if they where completely chromed instead oj just the outside. I think those fat 18's on the rear give these cars a nice fat stance. But hey just my opinion.

    Thanks guys

    These are from OE Wheels, they are a sponsor here. The fronts are 17x9.5 and the rears are 17x11. 275's up front and 315's in the rear. They fit perfect with no hassle or hammer.

    OE wheels is not a sponsor here.

    Thread starter hasn't been on in nearly 2 weeks, so I think this thread is done now.
