Wheel size?

I have an 04 Z06 and am looking at getting a set of C6 Z06 wheels. My question is about the size, will they fit and clear everything?

Thanks,

Repo's C6 Z06 will fit, but OEM C6 Z06 rims will not fit properly because the offset is wrong.

Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

I am also thinking about OEM C6 Z06 wheels and tires for my '02 Z06.

Please expand on the "offset is wrong" comment.

Thanks

My response has to do with placing stock Z06 2006 rims on a Z06 C5 not regular C6 rims. OEM C6 Z06 rims with fit on the front without issues. However OEM C6 Z06 rims will not fit on the rear because the positive offset is too great on the OEM C6 Z06 rim, especially if you are putting them onto a Z06 or any C5 with Z06 rear brake ducts. You will need a 1/2" spacer. Contact Corvette Garage or LG for more info. Let us know if you find out anything different.
