What to do?

I have a '04 ZO6 with about 10k miles. I'm Still driving on original tires but am ready to buy new. My question is should I just buy new tires and mount them on the original wheels or should I keep the originals mounted and buy a new set of rims for the new tires. Trying to decide if storing the originals will be beneficial in the future for resale and/or shows/potential NCRS judging.

Re: What to do?

There will be no real value of saving the originals intact

Also keep in mind if going with other wheels then also need 4 more tire pressure sensors and they are getting hard to find as GM as not used that design since 2004 model year
But since your sensors are so old, even if keeping the originals on car your really best to find 4 new sensors and replace old ones when replacing the tires

If buying new sensors be sure they are designed for C5s as the amount of work and cost if they are installed and then find they are not the right ones.

I too just replaced my original tires this month on my '03. I actually offered to give the original tires away for free to anyone in my local club just to save myself the recycling fees and there were no takers. Maybe 10-15 years from now you might find a taker for the tire / wheels, but right now the cars are too new and too readily available. Not many folks are planning to restore an early 2000s model year, when you can likely still find a complete car with under 10k miles for sale if you look around a bit.

Correct me if I am wrong, but as far as I know, C5 Z06's never came with run-flat tires (hence the goop and compressor in the trunk).

You are correct Tom! No TPS.

Re: What to do?

Last years of C5 the tire pressure sensors for the Z06, cannot recall which last years and if it was a option ?

Looking at GM parts for the OP having a 2004 Z06 says :
Corvette Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensors : 2001-2004 C5 & Z06 Part Number : 17801156

Doing internet search for C5 Z06 for tire pressure sensors also lists them for later C5 Z06s

C5Zs did not use pressure sensors as original equipment!

The TPMS sensors I used in my 2002 Z-06 were 25773946.
