18"s all around. I think 18" front and 19" rear would look better. I just did the same all around to allow for rotation.

Here are my stock C5 Gunmetal Z06 wheels on my car. By far my favorite wheels, 17's in the front and 18's in the back.

I know I have asked to question before, but honestly how is the handling and acceleration difference compared to the original wheels. 17 or 18's or both.. Also what was needed to get the factory Z06 wheels to fit?

I cannot say from experience, my z06 wheels are sitting in the garage until I need new tires, but I couldn't imagine much of a difference acceleration wise. Might be a slight difference from the weight saving but that would be it. They might help handling, if you can get wider tires than what you are running now. As far as fit they will bolt right up. No adapters or anything needed.

Accleration- I felt no difference
Handling- Since I had 17 stock all the way around, just moving up to 18 in the back didn't do anything. However, in my supra I went from 15 or 16s, cant remember, to 18s and it was a massive difference.

The replicas fit from http://www.oewheelsllc.com/Corvette-Wheels/c304233/

I believe that for factory ones need spacers, but im not 100%

Staggered do not belong on a c4 it totally ruins the styling of the car. I was wiping the tears from my eyes until I saw 88z51s and this red one. Red one is Lowered nicely too

Default Wow!

All I can say is these cars look great with the Z06 wheels. I didn't know what type of wheels I wanted and now it's clear, the Z06 wheels for me.

I plan on picking a set up this week, and I will post pictures after the install.

Great looking cars.
