Wow a 305 on a 9.5"? Ok. So Z06 front wheels with 305/45-18 tires is the final for the ZL1 rear.

Thanks for your input. Plan to have these ready for the strip after the 1500 mile break-in.

No problem at all. There's even some.individuals that fit 315s on the stock SS rim. Now that's crazy haha.

How close are you to that break in period?

Looking for a pair of these vette wheels (the ones on the video posted by SUX2BU) myself, anyone know where I can get a cheap set in gloss black?

Any help would be appreciated, thanks

Congrats man that's awesome. I had an allocation at my local dealer but changed my mind because of all the work I did to my SS already. But everytime I see one I just want it more and more. Keep us updated.

As far as where to get wheels I wont recommend where I got mine because they were a headache to work with. But you can Google C6 zo6 replica wheels and a bunch will pop up.

Ebay 18x9.5 40mm offset 5x4.75 (yes, I know ours is 5x120, but it still works)

Do you have a link for these? I see them for $152 each with a 56mm offset that are new replica type black Z06 wheels. Thanks.

I run the Weld S74's and the Z06 front at different times. Both at a good solution.

56 offset won't fit, those are the Vette rear wheels. You have to run the Vette fronts that are 40mm offset.

So you run the Vette rear wheels for the front and the back of the ZL1?

Sounds like a good racing setup using the Vette rims.

With the ZL1 tire height being 28.8" is there a rim tire setup that you know of that would fit over the front calipers or for use on the rear JUST for emergency use (i.e., "spare")...??? thought i'd ask while you all were on tire setups!! thanks

It's actually 28.4" tall. You could get a TSW 18x8 and run a 225/60 18. Or experiment with some REALLY low priced Ebay wheels since you only need one. Like this one, I bet it would fit.

Why would you want to also run them on the front?
