    Those are the stock C6 vette rims, but hot none the less.

    Z06 has the dual 5 spoke design.

    Thanks for all the replies.. Sorry I havent checked in before now. Troubles on the homefront.. Anyway, Mine is a two wheel drive.. and I was actually considering maybe some replicas instead.. I do realize that the rear wheels on the 07 are 12" wide.. So, I'm thinking replicas are in order.. Seemed to be a good topic though. I've always liked the corvette wheels.

    I had also thought about the factory corvette wheels from the late 80s early 90s.. I've seen an S-10 running a set and I kinda liked that look... Any opinions?

    Depends on what wheels you are thinking? I think the ZR-1 wheels are the only ones that look decent enough to put on anything.

    I was hoping you werent talking about those lol. They are the worse ones they put on them im my opinion, BUT on a s-series they may look decent, i'd have to see to decide.

    Same thing I was thinking lol. But it's your truck, and I've seen those look good on one Blazer...it was built for the One Lap of America race...I think lol.

    Edit: These are the ZR-1 style...

    The boyds I'm running are for a vette or camaro 9.5x17 w/275/50/17s. I do have 2 1/4 spacers front and back. The rims do hit the sway bar at full lock. Ohter than that, no probs.

    I was searching earlier on ebay for corvette rims.. and yes, the zr-1s seem to be the really popular ones... There's an image on there with a typhoon with the factory zr-1s on there and it claims it has no wheel spacers.. (I think I read that)... It's got the 17x9.5 and 17x11 rear..

    But yes, I saw a box style s10, bagged, with a set of the wheels that I posted a pic of.. Except they were dipped in chrome.. I thought it looked pretty decent.. But to each their own.. I guess?

    The Typhoon wouldn't need wheel spacers, it's awd.

    What did you do? Search for corvette wheels and decide to post in ancient threads?
