Hey, I haven’t made a thread on here since I had my 04 GTO. But I just got another GTO, so I just got another account lmao.
Okay, I’ve had my eyes on two sets of wheels for awhile, and I was here to see what people have experienced with fitment. Also which set of wheels do you think will look better on a Goat? Thank you in advanced for your help!!!

Staggered wheels and tires. C5/C7 Corvette fitment.

Tires.
Front : 245 45 17
Rear : 275 40 18

Wheels.
17x9.5 Front
18x10.5 Rear

Square Helo Wheels

Wheels.
18x9 Front and Rear

Tires.
245 45 18 Front and Rear

Honestly I would prefer the wider C5/C7 Wheels but I’m not sure it’s possible without rolling my fenders. GTO is also on Bc Racing coilovers.

My personal opinion is that a car with that much black on it needs contrasting color wheel to compliment it. Just like you wouldn't wear a black shirt with a tux.

The types of wheels themselves are fine, but silver, gunmetal or even chrome would be my preference over black.

I don't think you'll be able to get a 9.5 to fit in the front nor a 10.5 in the rear unless you do some fairly extensive body "massaging."

A 9 might fit with the correct offsets although that is on the wide side for the front as there isn't a ton of room to play with up there.

You're right, I kind of see that myself now, the last car I built was a white tuxedo 02 SS so I kind of naturally looked for black wheels lmao. I was thinking about some gunmetal C5Z wheels, but I'm not sure.

Why don't you try Michelin tires from 4wheelonline? It has the best performance in the market.

With the right hub centric spacers the C6 wheels work great!
