If the tires aren't too old I'll take my time getting the stock wheels re-shoed but if they're old they're gone. Planning a trip in the next couple weeks with it and I don't do long runs on old tires. Something I became sensitive about as a motorcyclist.

Congrats on the ride. As far as the Z06 rims go, other that being wide in the rear, I like them. In fact I like them so much I put them on my 86. Funny thing on the gas gauge, went through the same thing when I picked up my 86. Bought it at a car auction in New Mexico. Went to get it and pulled out onto the highway. As I'm going down the highway, everything looked OK till I realized I couldn't find the gas gauge. I also found a gas station and it took something like 17-18 gallons to fill it up. I didn't see a 'check gauges' light, nor at the time did I see the gas gauge, but it had to be running on fumes.


Personally I think the Z06 rims compliment the C4 body style, but I'd worry about how far those rears are sitting outside the body. One good bump and they could contact the body. Personally I'd like to see them sit further into the wheel well.

Summer is here, so have fun! When winter arrives, ,right be the time to swap out the wheels.

That's a nice looking convertible you've got there -- good color.

Think about it, what late model car could I buy, for the money, that even comes close to my 'vette? The fact that I'm going to have to tinker with it is icing on the cake.

None. Nothing. The value you get in C4's right now is unbeatable.
