Look here or on the Registry because someone just did a C6ZR brake swap for the C4 ZR. They did not use the Cup wheels however. IIRC correctly, there were some issues when looking to adapt the rear calipers even when using the Street Shop adapters.
My personal feeling is that 20” rears are too big aesthically for the C4. The 19” along w the 18” in front visually create a very nice “raked” looked.

i agree - the big dia wheels dont suite the c4s

i was asking as i was thinking maybe doing / trying the 19x10 fronts as a square set up all around

i dont know why someone hasnt started making dymag II replicas and i could be down with it.....

Looks like your car caught the Photogs' eye at Rad Wood in Austin.

That’s crossed my mind also. Alho I do like the way the C6 Z06 wheels expose the brakes. Love the Dymags.

I agree, Dom. On my 94 ZR-1, I went with 19x10 and 19x11.5 CCW SP551's. In retrospect, 18x10 fronts would have looked even better, IMO.

When I purchased my C5Z, it had 19x10 and 19x11 CCW SP500's. Wanting the capability to run C6Z front brakes and a 18/19 stagger, I bought a new pair of 18x9.5's, a few months ago.
My first thought was to go with 20x11 rears, instead, but I'm glad I went the other direction.

I doubt it unless they went with the streetshop performance setup as I don't see an extra caliper in the rear wheel setup. I'm not even sure if the streetshop mod is even available anymore.

I’ve been told SS does offer the rear brake adapter as I have. They used to display it on their website. Apparently these days u need to inquire about it directly.

Default Street shop parking brake

I do have the street shop parking brake kit. Very well made and it functions perfectly. The cable portion is something that took some doing. I used a Lokar universal parking brake kit to make it function. It took a couple of tires to get it perfect. It is perfect

Yep, same here. Took a few shots at coming to correct cable length. Fortunately had a friend who did garage doors, so we could cut the cable and crimp the ends on. On other issue was routing the cable. I cut a slit i the eBrake cable bracket so it was easier to install and reinstall the cable since the barrel ends did not fit thru the hole provided. Also, needed to use 2 axle washers to provide clearance, otherwise locking down the axle castle nut would effectively lock the axle.
