putting deposit down for '15 nonz 2lt. really wanting to go with 20/21 rims. Im thinking this would look good LOMA Lector Custom Forged Wheels on a laguna blue with red calipers. not sure if this is more a euro dealer but can't really find anything that looks close to it. im new to after market wheels, can anybody recomend something similar. what are most rim dealers return policy. if we put them on the car and they look hiddous are we stuck with them? Also, what dimensions do i need to make sure there is adequate clearance?

thanks for any help,
matt

I suggest 20/21 or 20/20
The 18 or 19 on the front looks too small, IMO.

I'm running 265/30/20 and 305/30/20 which is almost exactly the same difference as stock diameter wise front to rear but only a bit larger the stock so it closes fender gap. The look is great less expensive for tires with better choices and gives the looked of being lowered.

We played around with the 20/21's as I've always liked big wheels, but unlike the camaro, I think with lowering on the bolts, the 19/20 size fits the C7 the best. These are cray brickyards, about $475 a rim:


19 x 9 cray - 1990CRB505121F70 machine face 50 offset
20 x 10.5 - 2005CRB655121F70 - machine face 65 offset
Stock size z51 tires

In that price range, I like the TSWs better.
not me - had the tsw's. Liked them but too hard to clean and not aggressive enuf for me...but as they say " to each his own" - but for those that like them , these are the exact same size as the brickyards above. They are also about $100 cheaper per rim.

Ordered car built. Wrong wheels dealer error. Anyone know where can get z51 wheel chrome.
West Coast Corvettes will swap Z51 painted wheels for Z51 chrome wheels for $995. They will only swap the same wheel size and type.

Thanks Nightracerick. They have no cores and although I am the only order waiting they told me yesterday could be 6 weeks or more.
