Rears are 18x9.5 with a 275-40x18.

Stock Z06 sizes introduced in 2001 are 265-40x17 on a 9.5" wide wheel and 295-35x18 on a 10.5" wide wheel. The OEM Z06 sizes will perfectly fit on the correct width wheel on any C5, without any rubbing issues or traction control problems.

Hey Rob! Yes!!!! Finally!! The forecast for next week is highs in the upper 80's, lows in the mid 60's! After a very hot summer, I was actually beginning to wonder if double digits would ever return!

Yeah - but the current vernacular uses rims and wheels interchangeably.

Rim= the outer edge, border, margin, or brink of something, esp. of a circular object.

Wheel= a circular frame or disk arranged to revolve on an axis, as on or in vehicles or machinery.
