    Thinking of going with c6 wheels..

    Well at the trip to the corvette musuem I got to see every damn type, coating, color and shade of corvette rim EVER made. By far the best rim that caught my eye was the c6. After looking at zr1s in person, I dont like em that much. I know the make the c6 in black 17s for the lug pattern for our cars, but I have a couple of questions.

    1. Does anyone make a blank centercap? I couldnt locate any.
    2. Anyone have any pics of them on a trans am? Google was very limited.


    thanks

    I got my 4 C6 wheels with blank centercaps... then added the SS logo on each one of them.
    You'll also notice that I have the 18x10.5 on all 4 corners w/ 315/30-18 on them.

    i have to check, but I think I oredered mine from LMPerformance.com
    Just call any place you are thinking on oredering and say you want the blank center caps... when I got my shipped wheels, I actually had 2 blanks and 2 corvette logo (doh!) I called them, and they sent me new ones that were blank.

    Awesome.

    I crawled all over those vettes(metaphorically) at the musuem. zr1s are way to damn chunky. I wish there was a f-body museum full of different combo wheels and mods...

    that raises the whole car by 1/2" and your OD of the tire by a whole 1", screwing up your speedo too.

    I bought the chrome C6 rims 18x10.5 rear and 17x9.5 front
    I got 285/35/18 rear and 275/40/17 front. My T/A is red so
    I think it will look good! I am not real sure of the rear rims?
    They are close to the lip if the fender and the inside is real close too. Does any one have picture of this type of setup?
