Will the stock Z06 rims 17"x9.5 and 18"x10.5 fit on a 98 C5 without any
The reason I am asking this questions is because I hate the WIDE spokes on
rims that the 98 C5 came with and would like to put a little more tire on
the ground in the rear...
I do like the silver 5 spoke rims that came on the 2000 C5 and in doing some
on it I have found that the rears are 18"x9.5 and will except a
P285/40/ZR-18 that comes
out to 11.22 inches on the ground is this the widest I can go staying inside
the wheel wells
on my stock 98 C5? or will the Z06 rim with a 315/30ZR-18 stay inside the
I am sorry for all of these questions but I would like to know from people
who know not go
to a tire shop and look stupid trying out every thing on the shelf, any
answers would be great.
And I defiantly value your opinion "DAD" Thanks in advance for any answers
Yes, the Z06 rims will fit with no problems, if you don't believe that take
a look at every other C5 out there, they have Z06 rims. Blaaaaa, do
something different. You are correct to be concerned about staying under the
body, I had a set of after market rims that had just a 1/2 offset and they
stuck out past the rear quarters, looked like crap.
Just an added bit of information about the 2002 polished and painted wheel,
it's forged, all of those after that were cast. Just a little lighter and a
little stronger. You can identify them by the width of the spoke where it
meets the rim, they are narrower. I just happen to have a set that I run on
my 98 for sale. I actually like them well enough to put them on the C6 but
the big brakes killed that. Looking at the tire circumference they are about
the same although the rims are different sizes.
Just a thought, try a set of the C6 wheels, some are available from those
that are going to the high dollar rims.
If you are close by stop and we'll put the non-runflats and the 2002 rims on
and let you see how much it changes the ride quality and cuts the noise. I'm
under the street light on the Michigan-Ohio-Indiana borders.
Just curious, what suspension did you get? Do you still have the plastic
links on the stabilizer bars?
Shipping would be about $30 to $35 a wheel so if you want to sell them just
toss out a figure and I will see if I can afford it thank you... if you want
you can send me an e-mail at
