Corvette Z06 tires/wheels on a C6

i'm not really a car guy, in regards to the mechanical technicalites...
RE: http://www.chevrolet.com/corvette/features/ Tires/Wheels section
but my question is, is it ok to put the Z06 tires and wheels on a C6?
w/o any negative performance/reliability issues

It would likely be a clearance issue if anything. That and you would suffer a minor mileage penalty. If you are really in a position to need the information, why not try asking in one of the Corvette forums where there is likely a vendor who has set up one that way? And if you are concerned about warranty issues, ask a couple Chevy dealers.

Lawrence knows he'll be picked apart on the Corvette forums faster than a 16 lb cooked turkey.

lol - you're confusing what I'm asking with what's different.
any bozo can calculate horsepower/liter...but what I am asking now is something a Corvette mechanic could only answer - which I'm not, that's why i'm asking. and my question isn't revealed on a stats sheet.
...know the difference.

Silly boy. Folks routinely put Z06 wheels and tires on their C6's. They aren't Corvette mechanics, and they hang out in the Corvette forums.
I would be happy to answer your question Lawrence as soon as you answer mine. :)

Yes Lawrence, do.
