Me.

I never actually liked vettes until the C6 but even then I'd rather have my Sky. C6's are awesome though.

OEM wheelwell fitment.
OEM fitment from an angle. Notice how the wheels are not hanging a good inch outside the body.

Ok now that I have been here a while I have figured it out. No one goes the speed limit. Kinda like California. It apears to just be a suggestion. Went by a penn state trooper in the median doing 70 in a 55 and he did not come out after me. I was in a large group of cars at the time just going with he flow.

I'm not a fan of the rear overhang......its a bit much........maybe you should source another set and use another pair of (17" X 8 1/2" fronts) in the rear and loose some of the overhang?

But as far as the look/styling goes......fine with me...congrats..

Here here!


I'm actually an "A" fan. No mods required.

Not that I don't "appreciate" the rest of the alphabet.

Had thought about that. Probably the best way to go.

I like the stock chrome wheels but these look better than any of the aftermarket wheels I have seen posted on this forum.

I like the C5 best but it wont have the LS2 or LS3. LS1 is just not as good. I was thinking about getting a C6 but I don't want to buy anything from government motors. I am going back to Ford or my next car may be my first import. Never another GM or Chrysler.
