    Good choice with the C6s they look sick on TAs. I believe you have to run a 1/2 spacer on the back to make them fit and also massage the inner fenders with a sledge hammer lol. I purchased some of the factory C6s off of the vettes and ran into the same problems. I eventually went with 18x9.5 all the way around to save problems.

    You shouldnt need a spacer they should fit just fine. I have 18x10.5 in the rear with no spacer and it isnt close to hitting anything. And i have a 295 tire

    From what I've seen/heard OEM C6 wheels require a spacer, some(all?) aftermarket rims do not

    well what i would do is put the rims on a judge it for yourself and see if you need it. If so then get one.i end up putting a 1/4 on just to even the tires out with the body but i didnt need one.

    you'll have to a fair amount of fenderwell massaging for the rears. i had them on without spacers. fronts will be fine. here's pics when i had them on my cars. a 1" spacer would be ideal for the rears.

    pics of my car with them on

    the wheels will need to be +52mm to +55mm offset to not need spacers on the rear.

    OEM 19x10 C6 rims require a 1.25" spacer on the rears. 18x8.5 fronts will fit just fine.

    I'm actually running the OEM 19x10's on all 4 corners with 275/30/19 tires. NO rubbing issues here since I'm using the 1.25" spacers.
