I was planning on getting some black z06 motorsport wheels with the polished lip. Does goodyear, or anyone else for that matter, have runflats for either of the following size combinations?

18x9.5 front, 19x11 rear

17x9.5 front, 18x12 rear

(I found some 18x12 wheels on ebay, the seller said that if 355's were used the car would not need tubbing. Is this true?)

Also, I've seen the black motorsports on a silver 'vette and liked the look, but my paint is light pewter metallic. Any opinions on how this combo would look?

Any help is appreciated!

That seller is full of it. If they did fit they would stick out at least 3/4" to accommodate a 355 size tire. If you or he meant 335 they will fit look like crap and stick out a 1/2" or more. :pp:

Maybe it was 335, at any rate I take it you would not recommend 12" wheels w/out tubbing. I guess that leaves 18x9.5 front and 19x11 rear. Does anyone make a 19x11 run flat?

No I would not. If you do a search on this site you can find a picture of a car with 18x12's and judge for yourself.
The new Z06 will have 325/30/19 runflats. I would guess that the price will be in the 500.00 range. :jawdrop:

Ouch! I guess I'll go with the stock Z06 wheel sizes. Thanks for all your help with this question and the header question
