I believe they will, but I think the older years ('84 to '88) need spacers.

Yes, they will bolt right on, but wheels spacers will be needed for all years. The thickness of the wheel spacer will depend on the year. I have a 1996 and I know I need 3/4" spacers all around.

What about adjustments for the speedometer? Is the overall diameter (wheel + tire) the same as the sawblades?

Default C-6

I have a set of C-5 and a set of C-6 wheels that I run on my 95 coupe and I don't need adaptors or spacers of any kind. No problems. Looks great

Hi Guys,

Can you fit C5 or C6 rims on a 1990 L98 without spacers? If I do need spacers what size?

Thanks
Morris

Spacers should only be needed with 84-87 vettes. From 88 through
96, any C5 or C6 wheels should fit correctly.

Not true, they will go right on an 88-96 no spacers. Here is my 94 with 18x9.5 all around

For a 1987, what size spacer would be needed for the wheels that y-me is running above me?

Default a.k.a. star wheel

Just put a set on my '93. Running 32mm spacer on rear, none on front. Like the handling improvement almost as much as the looks.
