    Thanks for posting pics... I was wondering exactly how far out they would sit on the rear. I also have the DD Z06 but in gunmetal.

    Rims and tires were high on the list of mods, but things like a new clutch, new house, etc, pushed things back.

    We now I finally did it.

    I wanted wider rims, and i think these wheels are over played, I probably would have kept them, but 3 were curb rashed pretty good, and the other was bent.

    I got a set of 18X10.5 and 17X9.5 C6 Z06 Deep dish chrome rims. along with 275/40/17 Firestone Wide Oval 500s, and 295/35/18 BFG KDW IIs. I know i said vette rims are over played, but I don't think these share much in common with them, other than being a 5 spoke rim.


    Anyway, here's the before and after pics.

    265 or 275 up front" i could find 275s

    i almost did that, i still got wide ovals up front, but I wanted the KDWs on the rear...the price really wasnt THAT much different. paying shipping 3 times instead of once kinda hurts though.

    front tires came from georgia, rears from louisiana, so i payed them separately, . plus the rim shipping. I came out to $1500 exactly
