The bolt pattern spacing is actually 5x120.6 so it woudl be hard to tell if your search term will fit exactly. For example, BMW wheels are 5x120 and they do not fit the bolt pattern correctly. A .1mm difference "may" be OK but the wheel should be installed on the hub to make sure.

The correct wheel offset for your car is 56mm. The backspacing will change somewhat depending on the width of the rim but for a 9.5" wide wheel, backspacing will be about 7 1/2".

Also, many aftermarket wheels may not clear the Corvette brake caliper even though the wheel dimensions are correct. If you are going to use the stock tires, the front wheels will need to be between 8 and 9 inches wide and the rear wheels should be 9 to 10 inches wide.

If you are going with a larger diameter like 18's or 19's, you need to make sure that the overall tire diameter is close to that of the stock tires. Too big a diameter and you throw off the speedo.

I love my wheels, but if they ever go bad, I'm thinking the black chrome variant of JonnyAngle's wheels. They look good...

My wheels:

AFS Black Chrome ZR1 wheels. 17x9.5 up front w/ 275/40ZR17s and 17x11 in back w/ 315/35ZR17s.

Are those 16's? Like from an '86 or so?

I've thought of puttin' my '94 sawblades on my '98 GMC Jimmy... I got no rubber on the rims now. The fronts are the 8.5's, and the rears are 9.5's.

Did you have to the adapter thing for your Blazer?

Turbines off my '85, 255 16s.
No adaptors; bolt pattern the same, offsets???
I had to knock the center caps out on the fronts for the hubs to fit through.
Tire rub in sharp turns.
I only did it for fun, took them off the same day (It looks silly, lowered the truck an inch)

Here's one more. 84 with the 17" Y2K thin spokes. I did need the adapters. Didn't know squat when I bought these and went with a 245 instead of the stock of 255 and kind of regret not having the bigger meats on the rear. If I did it again, would go with a black chrome wheel and bigger rear tires. I'll get around to lowering the rear one of these days.

RPD, You definately need that spacer for the front , it is sitting in way to far and does not loook right.

Get that done and it will look good, like the rims, different.
