Problem lies in finding a rim that will fit over the C5 caliper and finding a tire to fit that size rim. No combination exists that I know of.

What a friend of mine did is changed the front disk and calipers to a smaller size so he could fit a 15" rim on the front. There seem to be plenty of front skinny tires out there in 15" sizes.

CCW is the only ones I know of that has a wheel/tire combination for a stock braked C5.
