Are they actaully staggered (the wheels not the tires) or are you using just the fronts? Aren't the C5Z06 wheels like a 17x9.5 and 18x10.5 or something crazy didn't know they just bolted right on.

They are 17 all the way around front has a 1in spacer I'm guessing maybe a little more never measured it but rims came from finish line wheels

they do have a small dish, but not super deep. there are like the only 18" c6 z06 reps that don't require a spacer and are not $2600. I like em, but I wish the actual c6 z06 rims would fit. I love the look.

You can buy the Z06 replicas for less than 150 a piece in chrome or black 17s to 19s. I had them on my C6.

Real Z06 rims will not fit a stock GTO or base C6.
