Question Please help finding Z06 rims!!!

I apologize in advance as I'm sure this has been asked before, however I have found out through some awesome peeps here that replica Z06 18 × 10.5 with a + 53 mm offset will fit the rear of my 2013 SS. I want a low cost option for drag radials as I am currently Installing nitrous outlets system, kooks long tube headers with catless mid pies and an svtx4 tune to take my car to NMCA in Bradenton, Fl. Can anyone please direct me to where I can buy these rims???
Thanks soo much in advance!!! o
Tom

Why not just the standard 18x9.5 with 40mm offset that everyone is running around here? I picked up 2 spyder black chrome wheels for like 350 new off jegs.

What size drag radial are you running? I was told that was limited to a 275.
Trying to stay with 10.5 for future mods. May have to go that route if I can't find anyone selling them anymore. Thanks

305/45/18 is what everyone is running. There's a few really froggy guys that run the Hoosier 325/35/18 but only if your cal isn't lowered.

+53 wheels are hard to come by, I've only seen one pair come up for sale. I've run 18x9.5 with 305 DRs, tires are a little big but they worked.

Next NMCA race at Bradenton isn't until next spring right?

Thanks i was under the impression a 305 was to wide for a 9.5. Hopefully i was wrong. ( wouldn't be the first time lol )

Also thanks for the contact. Will give them a call today

+53 mm are definitely difficult to find. Some have said they don't make them anymore.

18x9.5 with 305/45R118 NT05Rs, the tires are a little big but they work fine. My old combo from a year ago:


I'm a dealer for these wheels, Race Star, here are the same size tires on 18x10.5's:

Car is lowered 1.4" in the rear with 305/45 on 18x9.5 spyder replicas from factory reproductions. Hit them up, they're a sponsor here.

I don't remember the name of the company, but they make a 18x11 replica of the ZL1 wheels that looks pretty good too.

I got my 18x9.5's from Bob at House of Wheels.
