Corvette Wide Body and Wheels CorvetteForum 4

If you’ve been thinking about giving your C6 Z06/Grand Sport or C5 wide-body Corvette a new look, check out this wheel and tire combo.

Corvette Forum member MAD Matt is selling it. The Sport Muscle GS concave wheels are 19″ X 10″ up front and 20″ X 12″ in the rear. All four have Corvette Racing Jake center caps and are wrapped in Nitto Invos – 275/30/19 in the front and 345/25/20 in the back. In his listing, MAD Matt says, “The wheels have no curb damage or scuffs and the whole set up has less than 1000 miles.”

We have no financial stake in this, so we can honestly say these wheels and the rubber around them look damn good on MAD Matt‘s C5 Z06. The definition of the wheels’ hard, geometric lines contrasts attractively with the soft curves of the high-output hardtop.

This package – and the gratitude of a fellow Corvette Forum member – can be yours for $2,400. Hit the link below to get more details about these wheels and tires, and how they’ll be shipped.

Derek Shiekhi's father raised him on cars. As a boy, Derek accompanied his dad as he bought classics such as post-WWII GM trucks and early Ford Mustang convertibles.

After loving cars for years and getting a bachelor's degree in Business Management from Texas State University, Derek decided to get an associate degree in journalism from Austin Community College as well. His networking put him in contact with the editor of the Austin-American Statesman newspaper, who hired him to write freelance about automotive culture and events in Austin, Texas in 2013. One particular story led to him getting a certificate for learning the foundations of road racing.

While watching TV with his parents one fateful evening, he saw a commercial that changed his life. In it, Jeep touted the Wrangler as the Texas Auto Writers Association's "SUV of Texas." Derek knew he had to join the organization if he was going to advance as an automotive writer. He joined the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) in 2014 and was fortunate to meet several nice people who connected him to the representatives of several automakers and the people who could give him access to press vehicles (the first one he ever got the keys to was a Lexus LX 570). He's now a regular at TAWA's two main events: the Texas Auto Roundup in the spring and the Texas Truck Rodeo in the fall.

Over the past several years, Derek has learned how to drive off-road in various four-wheel-drive SUVs (he even camped out for two nights in a Land Rover), and driven around various tracks in hot hatches, muscle cars, and exotics. Several of his pieces, including his article about the 2015 Ford F-150 being crowned TAWA's 2014 "Truck of Texas" and his review of the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider, have won awards in TAWA's annual Excellence in Craft Competition. Last year, his profile of Wagonmaster, a business that restores Jeep Wagoneers, won prizes in TAWA’s signature writing contest and its pickup- and SUV-focused Texas Truck Invitational.

In addition to writing for a variety of Internet Brands sites, including and, Derek also contributes to other outlets. He started There Will Be Cars on Instagram and Facebook to get even more automotive content out to fellow enthusiasts.
