I put '08 split-spokes on my '02 convertible, stock 'o8 tires. Direct bolt on. Fronts are perfect, rears are set in 5/16" compared to originals. Some have to add 1/4" spacers in the rear, some don't. I didn't, but might later, just for looks. HTH

One more thing, if you are considering ZO6 wheels, you might want to wait for someone that has done it to respond, before you do the $ thing.

Standard C6 polished wheels wheels were a direct fit on my '01, without
using any spacers.

The wider C6 Z06 wheels may rub the rear wheel housings, without spacers.
