........maybe you should source another set and use another pair of (17" X 8 1/2" fronts) in the rear and lose some of the overhang?
:agree:
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.

Me.

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

This looks absolutely awful. If one thinks that the old "sawblades" look good for a set of wheels, then so be it...

But good god man, at least get the fitment right. It looks attrocious with the wheels sticking out so far. It's a bit much, to be blatantly honest. If you like the wheels so much, you might want to consider rolling the fenders (if its possible to roll them that much) or take them to a wheel shop and have the wheels narrowed a bit.

Extra points for trying something new and going through with it, point deduction on delivery.

I'm not talking about how they drive, I'm talking about how they look. Poked out wheels are cool but they have to be ran right. It should look like this:

Well, yes...but only if the person actually uses the correct tire size for the wheel width. The tires above are too narrow for those wheels...

To rephrase the terminology of the OP, in this case...the "shoes are too narrow for this particular cars feet". Unless of course you're a drifter, then apparently it's ok.

NOOOOOOoo ...
.......... side view?
:lol:

I don't care much for the 1980's style sawblades, but whatever floats your boat man. It doesn't really look bad, just kind of dated. I only wish you would do something about how far the wheels/tires stick out, it really is funky looking. :thumbs:

Retro, or Dated?

The pinwheel design shown below is not from the 1980s. These side-specific wheels were standard only on the '91-'96 models. They are quality lightweight units produced for Chevrolet by Enkei in Japan. Indeed, outsourcing is nothing new for General Motors. Sometimes get tired of looking at all the brake parts and just want to see... wheels... Old School , I guess.

Welcome to the new trend and a lot of people are doing it that way. I wouldn't want to run a set up like that but I do like how it looks. If you want to run wheels that poke out, thats the way to do it.

So they get wide wheels and put thin tires on them?
Seems like they are just asking for trouble .......
or too cheap to put real meat on their rims.

Too cheap? :lol: The majority of them aren't running cheap vette wheels, they're running rare Work, HRE, CCW that start at $500 a wheel.

They're doing it so they can have their car slammed but still run wide wheels with a wide lip. Your car is on stock 4x4 suspension so you don't have to worry about rubbing your tires. However if you were to ever lower your car, damaged tires and fenders are in your future.

OK. Two thousand dollar wheels with tires that don't fit right.
So :dunno: whatever floats their boat.
Like you said man, I wouldn't drive 5 miles with that kind of set up.
Have a great Labor Day holiday, bun1t.

but I also wouldn't drive your set up to the end of the driveway. Seriously those wheels fail and you would be doing yourself a favor if you removed them.

:glol: Thanks for your opinion.

Run about 600 miles on them so far.
Getting ready for a road trip so will go back to stock.
Will look for issues when I pull them.
Don't expect to find anything out of the ordinary though.

I assure you, any car enthusiast with any kind of taste will have the same opinion. If you don't believe me, find your local car enthusiast forum, post your pics and see what they say.
