    a 1.5" spacer for the rear would be ideal. i've had factory C6 wheels on both my cars with no spacers. took a fair amount of wheelwell modifying to get the rears to fit. here's some pics.

    Before you order spacers be advised that wheel spacers will cause wheel vibrations at higher speeds (>55mph). Since there are many manufacturers that make aftermarket wheels, just order the correct offset so that you won't have to modify anything.

    by reading his initial post, it seems he already has the factory 19" C6 wheels.

    you're going to need longer lugs with the spacers...

    they all look like that. is there an ABS sensor located at the axle? i'm going to guess no.

    removed the ebrake liner, if you are putting longer studs in. just drill a hole through the backing plate.
