    C5 Corvette wheel day!

    I had a client drop ship me his new CCW`s for his C5 `vert. Has CCW`s on it now powder coated black and he is wanting to change the look up.


    He went from a 19"-20" setup to 18"`s all the way around. Car looks very good with the new hoops on!


    I also adjusted the coil overs to level out the ride and it is sitting pretty now!

    I like the wheels, shiny looks good with that blue. I`m not sure I`d have changed the wheel diameter, he`s probably grown accustomed to the short sidewall. He`d almost certainly notice it if he`s running it hard. Now if he`s driving it like Grandma and Ron, no big deal.

    Looks great. One of my favorite C5`s. I like both wheels. Owner can switch them out like shoes

    Would love to see some bigger calipers and rotors on it. C6 Z06 brake upgrade would make that car perfect.

    Beautiful car! Was there a big difference in the weight of the wheels?

    I`m confused. Why did he drop ship you a set of tires & wheels? Just to mount them on the car?

    Nothing earth shattering...the polished set are a bit lighter.

    So I could polish and coat them for him and then do the install.

    Re: C5 Corvette wheel day!

    I like the black on that car but not necessarily the design. The new wheels step it up well...more of a custom look! I had two vert 5`s and they are great cars. Is that original paint on the car?

    Original paint on the fenders, doors, rear deck. Has a new aftermarket hood installed and had the rear valance re-shot as well as the nose.
