    Can I make these fit (Black C6)?

    I just got off the phone with corvettes of houston looking to purchase some Black C6 wheels. The sizes are 18 x 9.5 front and 19 x 10 in the rear. He said that because of the C6 offset they would bolt up but not recommended without a spacer. I am pretty set on these wheels and want to get some opinions before I'm forced in another direction. They(COH) only work on corvettes so they will not put the wheels and tires on my car.

    My questions:

    1) Black wheels on a Cayenne Red Metallic TA? Yes/no

    2)Tire sizes?

    3)What size spacers, and is this a job that Discount Tire can do, or do I need to go to a performance shop?

    4)Will they fit if I lowered the car 1.5" with the Eibach kit?


    Thanks for your help Gentlemen

    The fronts should fit no problem at all with 275/35/18 tires. The rears on the other hand wont fit without some work. Youll probably need to roll the fender lip and bang in the fender. I would just recommend getting 18x9.5s all around.

    Its not too hard, they said I would have to use spacers for my CCW's but once I put them on they fit fine. I just hit the inside of the wheel wells with a mallet and havent had an issue.

    I tried 18" Chrome C6 Wheels and they would NOT fit the front! They were right on the steering knuckle... too much offset or not enough, they sat too far in...
