Default Help finding wheel adapters

Hello! I'm doing a wide booty conversion on my base c6 soon and need help finding some 1.75'' thick wheel adapters in the right configuration.

After doing some searching online I'm having trouble finding them stocked anywhere. I would rather not pay for custom machined adapters, so anyone looking to sell or knows of a vendor let me know!

Regards,

John

Which kit did you go with? I'm running 1.5" spacers and would not go wider, especially on the fronts. You will have rubbing issues on the inner fender headlight braces.

I'm only doing the rear OEM Zo6 quarters for now. I've read that with offsets factored in, stock z06 rims would stick out 1 11/16'' further than base. Which would put me just slightly wider than a stock zo6 in the back, does this not sound accurate?

I completely agree with the 1.5" comment. That's what I ran for my wife booty before I bought new wheels and it was perfect.

In fact, if your interested I'll send them to you for $60. They are black huncentric spacers used less than 1k miles.

You guys are probably right. Shoot me an email with pictures and I'll let you know if I want them! If you have pictures from when they were on the car that would be awesome too. email: [email protected]

Thanks!

This I'm not 100%. I did the extra wide fenders. best bet is to put the fenders on and your wheels. measure how far you want them
