C6 Grand Sport wheels?

Will they fit on a C5 Z06? I am looking for a set of track wheels for my new ride. Are the hubs the same? Came up empty handed on a search. Newb here to Vettes...been a Mustang Cobra guy for 9 years.

I think they will bolt right on but will stick out about 1 inch.

So I assume the backspace isn't the same. The front wheels measure 9.5" on both models. It would not surprise me if the rear wheels stuck out. I know the C6 Z06 rear wheels are 12" wide.

Re: C6 Grand Sport wheels?

I really don't know the dimensions of the GS vs the C6Z wheel. I just know that when I got my C6Z, I removed the rear wheels off each car and tried to swap them. The C6Z wheel fit on my C5Z but stuck out.

I'm too lazy to search for wheel dimensions. I'll leave that to you.

I tried to find my pics that I took when I did the swap but for some reason, I can't find them. Had 2 computers crash on me last year and had to replace them both. I hope I didn't lose the pics.
