    About to order!

    Got rid of the ZR1 rims now about to order C6 Z06 rims, I know popular rim for 4th gens but they look so damn good imo haha, I am not sure on the offset of our cars but I am assuming I will have no problems clearing the stock breaks with thees but im just minking sure? The fronts are 18x9.5 50mm offset and the backs are 19x10 with a 56mm offset. Check the link. Also ordering 2in lowering springs for the front and 1.5in lowering springs for the back so hopefully it will look good in the end. All of this is going on this car.

    i have true C6Z06 wheels and tires. and ill say the rears took some work to make work. they stick in ward. if you add a spacer then it sticks hillbilly style out past the body. now if you get the repicas then you should be fine

    that looks like it'll be sweet, but wow is that low. I have the BMR 1" drop springs and my lowest point is under 4" off the ground.

    I was debating between 1.5 or 2 in the front. Its not a dd so Im not to worried about it being to low just want it to sit nice a flush with the tires.

    reps are fine if you had authentics you would have work ahead of you




    you can see in this pic where the spring pocket had to be massaged in and bumpstop removed. Dont mind the mock up pick of the cme. You can see i had to center the rear to get them to even fit. since these pics the area that is massaged in was taken much further for a better looking finish. i just havent took pics since im not back at that stage of build lately. Car is getting a complete restore with custom touches [saved from crusher]

    since yours are only 19x10 shouldnt have any issues being a 19x12 with a 27" tall tire it takes more work
