    Not a fan of the overly wide rim and smaller tire like the import guys do it. And all that cash for a bright wheel simiar to stock.

      Not a fan of the "stretched tires" (on any car) or that particular size of wheel on the C8.

      But as the saying goes beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

        Just wait until we see the first "stanced" C8.

          The fronts are too big but otherwise i kind of liked it...

          stock rims are a little narrow in my opinion probably for aerodynamics...

          an extra half or full inch wider if it fits would be smart.

          i think going 20/21 s probably adds some unfavorable unsprung weight which Im rarely a fan of..

            agree on the unsprung weight and front being a bit too large JB ... not a fan of larger diameter wheels. But ... if the OP likes them ... go for it

                717s' car sure looks good cruzin the highway.
                Sitting stationary, the fitment of tire/wheels...kinda wrong.

                    I really like them also, I'm going to get a price tomorrow. I'm sure they are going to be pricey. The thing I like is they can color match the car.

                      I'm 99% sure that the deep dish style of wheel wont work on the C8. The offsets are all wrong unfortunately.

                      I've seen dozens and dozens of C8's with aftermarket wheels and not one with a deep dish.
