They are stock C4 ZR1 wheels. I run VIR as my home track but have done Summit Point, Charlotte Motor speed way ( yes they have an HPDE track in the infield) and Carolina Motor sports park. Will be at VIR for the NCM event in June.

Does anyone else have pictures of this set up? C4 ZR1 wheels on a C5 Z06 with the 11" rears?

Thanks for confirming that. I am seriously thinking about buying a set of replicas to use for the track. That first picture on this thread of the red C5 with the drag radials makes it look like the rears are a bit too wide for the car and might rub. Yours look like they fit perfect. It made me wonder what the deal was.

He probably has wider tires than my NITTO's. Mine are 315/40/17.
Send me your e-mail and I will post some pics.

What offset are your rear wheels?

Thanks. This has become a challenge for me to get a straight answer on what offset is right for the 17x11" Grand Sport/ZR1 wheels in the rear. Any additional information or pictures will help. Thanks.

I hate to resurrect this old thread but didnt see the point of starting a new one when there is plenty of valuable info and pics.

Now to my question: I can see the c4 zr1 wheel stick out a bit on the stock rear fenders.

Does any one how they will sit on c6 z06 styled wide body rear fenders that are made for c5's?

This is the 17x9 front and 17x11 rear combo with 315s on the rear. No fender flares but they are in my future.

About a decade ago you could find C4 ZR-1 5-spoke replicas in 18". I bet they only fabricated few hundreds. Long time ago I saw a blue C5 coupe in here with silver ZR-1 wheels, and it looked weird.

The red one in here with black wheels looks bad ***.

Dakota Slim - those wheels look great on the car. I've always been a fan of that style wheel (had them on two of the C4s I owned).

common, you need the grand sport offset not the actual zr1 offset

these were the wheels to use back when the c5z was a new car and you wanted to track. 315 35 17 and 275 40 17 are common R comp sizes
