    Got the ZR1 rims from OE Wheels, they are holding up well. wish there was a way to keep the back inside clean and shiny, without taking them off to polish them

    I have the c6 z06 rims. No issues with them and they clean up easy. These are the pics that the dealer had when I bought the car. The front tires are 245/40/18, the rear tires are 295/30/19.

    You can get TTII's just about anywhere...I bought the fronts from a local spot...the rears from Amazon! Just make sure you are getting the Camaro/Firebird setup, most websites acknowledge the specific setup.

    Edit: here are the AR part numbers...just do a search for these and it will bring up plenty of options.
    17x9.5: VN50579563
    17x11: VN50571163
