I think I read somewhere you could get the CCW one piece wheels now in 18" as well as the 19s and 20s. Gives you more options.

I run a 19x11 in the front with a 275/30/19 and a 19x13 in the rear with a 355/25/19 and they fit perfectly with the LPE mini-tub.

Hmmm... Not sure what I would do. The HRE's look like they'd be very similar to the C5R OZ wheels -- so, they could look really sweet. I just don't think I've ever seen these HRE's on a Vette, so it's hard to say.

I don't think you can get the CCW's in anything but 19"s (yet), can you? I heard rumors that CCW was going to entertain the idea of making 18"s, but I don't think they have done so yet. Anyone know for sure?

Maybe someone could photoshop some big HRE's onto a Z06. I think they could look sweet.

CCw's are preferred over the HRE's shown.

Just an opinion. Although the I forged rims I saw the other day were pretty impressive looking as well.

Any good deals out there on either wheel? They both look good. They would look good on any C5. I don't have 19" tires so it would have to be a wheel and tire combo. I need a set of nice looking wheels. Who doesn't?

Did you install the mini-tub setup? If so, do you think it might be a do-it-your-self kind of deal?

The set up you are running would look nice on my Coupe.

I have 505a's but think the HRE's are an awesome wheel. I initially wanted HRE's but didn't want a 2-piece because they're heavier and the price is a bit steep for my budget. I don't particularly like that model of HRE shown for a Vette but it's a good looking wheel.

A couple of us have done our own minitubs. GNX Guy (Joe) has a nice write up with pics on the site. Do a search. IMO, the hardest part is getting the carpet to lay right. After my rollbar install, it finally looks good back there :)

I'm running 18x10/19x12 HRE 545Rs on my Z.

HRE's or the GT3's in Satin would be my choice. I originally liked the 505's when I first saw them, but they haven't stood the test of time in my eyes.
