Im looking to buy c6 z06 wheels and just wanted to know if anyone has put 19x12 in the rear and 18x9.5 in the front with the L5 flares. What offsets are your wheels and did they have clearence problems at all?

Those are the sizes on my car above. The fronts are a +50mm offset from Topline Productions.....they clear my Baer 6S calipers. With standard C5 calipers the standard +57mm Factory Reproductions 18x9.5's will not have issues.

I have the C6 Z06 calipers all 4 corners. What about your rear size? Any clearance issues. Also where did you buy your wheels?

19x12's +59mm offset (stock C6Z) with 3/4" spacers....no issues with lots of clearance. Tires & wheels purchased from Discount Tire.

the rear wheels would also clear the c6 z06 brakes without the spacers as they are regular c6 z06 spec wheels.

So with these fenders you could use oem c6z wheels? Do the fronts fit fine too, or do they stick out? Just not sure if nemesisc5's vette is c6z offsets or c5?

his fronts are +50mm.

OEM c6 z06 front wheels are +40mm.

regular c5 fronts in 9.5" widths are usually +57-ish.

So does anybody run oem c6z wheels or do the offsets keep them from fitting?

Stock C6Z rears with the flares with 1/2"-3/4" spacers in rear (depending on your preference). The stock C6Z fronts have +40mm offset which will make them stick out way to far. I tried them just to see....the C6Z front fenders are wider to cover them better
