Default "Callaway" DYMAGS...

I am in Australia, which means sourcing things like this is VERY hard, but is it still possible to get those DYMAG wheels?? If so, what kind of $$$ (USD will do) for a set?? And what kind of info should i know about these particular wheels? Apart from the fact it will make my 94 Corvette look like 1 of the other 2 Callaway Corvettes in Australia... (Thats right yeah,there is apparently only TWO Callaway C4s known to be in this country, 1 is a 91 twin turbo with Aero body, and not sure on the other one,but it is twin turbo and has standard body)

I am unable to answer your question although I know it will not be cheap. Try an e-mail to Jason: parts@vette2vette.com
I am going to Bloomington Gold at the end of June. They have a huge swap area there. I will keep my eye out for a set and send you the info if I find any.
How are things in the land of Oz today?
Edit: Here is a pic of one of the Callaways with Dymags at last year's Bloomington Gold show. Enjoy!

They are made of magnesium, which make them ultra light. They are 10" wide except for a few that were made with the ZR1 offset. Price can range. It's not uncommon to pay about 4k for a set, if you can even find them.

You probably already know this, but some will say Dymag/Callaway while others will say Dymag/Corvette.

These were also the wheels used during the Corvette Challenge race. Also the wheel used on the ZR1 when it broke the 50+ year long 24 hour endurance record.

HRE are an obvious aftermarket look. DYMAGs look like factory wheels cause they were optional on some cars. i much prefer to keep a factory apearance (or close to) rather than change things like that.

Not only that but Dymags are worth their weight in gold. Will be more so in the future.

Damn straight,and with only 2 Callaway Corvettes in this whole entire country,they would be just that much more of an investment id imagine....

Very good stuff there 8388, i think the Callaway Corvettes look great, and even if i only made my 94 "look" like an Aero body, it would be something very special in this country...

I could be wrong, but the centercaps look the same as the ones found on the 17" '88 and '89 wheels.
