not yet, im watching a few sites myself. the closest so far are c5 zo6 size and offset. im not going to tell you that i did run c5 z06 sized wheels on a base c7 last year for autocrossing and yes the 17 inch fronts fit perfect with 295/35/17 hoosier on front but i went crazy with tire size in the rear the 18's and busted out my rear inner fender lips, 315/30/18 are to big to run with 58mm offset. if their was a gun to my head i would run the c5z06 18x10.5's offset 58mm front and back with nothing bigger than a 275 front and 295 or less back, when the c7 z51 first came out many guys ran the c5 zo6 18's wheels front and back for tracking. i already said to much!! LOL= im sure the aftermarket c7 zo6 wheels are right around the corner in c7 base/z51 offsets, i now have a z51 car but i want a 18/19 setup.

Won't look the same. Without the wide body, it'll be flat as a pancake. Or like the crappy Forgestar's will stick out and run the risk of cracking your fenders.

i think your right, the z06 front wheel would have to lose 13 mm offset and 1 1/2 inches of width and the rear would lose 19mm offset and 2 inches of width to be the same size of z51 wheels. they will be/look flatter. well i just took that off my wish list! now i wishing for hoosier a7's in 305/30/20's.
