Budman78, Yea I think the 20's will work well with the Steeriods and VB&P Plus package. I only wished I knew what the car drove like before. It's going to be like driving a new one... I can't wait! :D

Jay, what tire size combo did you go with? :crazy:

no you dont. :lol:
my vette rides nice, but handling isnt what its great at. it likes straight lines. the 18s and VBP package should help that though.

i talked to the owner of HvyDeez (www.hvydeez.com) a while back when i was 1st interested in these wheels. i think she said they charger by diameter. so if you wanted 20"x12" it would be the same as 20"x8" i had asked about 4 18s with nitto tires already installed and balanced, and she said $2700. so including shipping to me probably $2850 in CO. im not sure how much shipping would be to NY. they are based in California.

From stock? I'd say good 2"! There's still another 1" to drop if I feel like it. I have to drivet first to let it settle and then see where it sits. :cheers:
