    It is a great deal, and I have a guy coming over today to take a look at them and leave a deposit. I'm going with Nitto 345/25-20 in the rear and 285/30-19 in the front. The wheels I bought are from Corvette Wheels (.com) Total investment of about $4,000.00.
    I'm really looking forward to getting them, but I have to wait until the middle of August until they come in....
    I would post pics but I can't on this site.

    as far as light wheels the c6/zo6 are some of the lightest for their wide, size !!- fronts 9.5 wide 18' -23.5 lbs--rears are 12' wide 19' -25 lbs.. they are for polished wheels chrome are like a pound, or two more.! there are aftermarket wheels for these corvettes maybe a half to inch wider ? their costs ,are not cheap !! another way to save weight on these corvettes is to go with out runflat tires!, save as much as 3 lbs per wheel ,thats a lot on the track.. rkvette

    Either that or gut the interior... But 3 ilbs rotational decrease per wheel is a nice upgrade.
