    I have been looking for some as well. So far the best place I have been able to find them is ebay. prices are ranging from 600-1500. The best info I have been able to find is that they weigh 25 lbs. as well, but that doesnt seem right. Anybody else want to help us out w/ this??

    unless im mistaken, they should be about 19lbs a wheel. West coast corvette sells a brand new set (reproduction/aftermarket) that you can buy for 1200. in 99 they were 3000 from the factory, in 2000, they were a 2000 option. They are the lightest set of wheels GM makes.

    I'm selling my original chrome Z06 wheels with the original Goodyears for only $750.00
    The tires have about 5k left on them. The rims and tires have never even kissed a curb, perfect condition.
    You pay for shipping, if you don't want the tires, I'll pay to have them removed, same price either way...$750.00
    Any interested parties can PM me for more info...
    Sizes are 275/35-18 and 325/30-19

    If you're referring to my wheels and tires, then the answer is, unfortunatly, only the fronts would tuck in. The rears would be too wide.
    However these WILL fit all generations of the F body.
