I'm on the hunt for a pair of OEM Speedline C5 Z06 rear wheels, 18x10.5. I'd be willing to buy an entire set of C5Z wheels if the price if right. I'm located in Central Texas and willing to drive to Houston/Austin/Dallas for the right deal.

Yeah, I've heard they are selling new ones, but I'm cheap so I'm on the lookout for some used ones!

Me too. You'd think as played out as these wheels on Camaro's are there'd be more of them for sale.

I did buy a set of 4 fronts for $400 a couple of years ago. I'm hanging onto them (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I bought a set of 4 rears for $450 a few weeks ago, and scored a set of 2 fronts/2 rears for $450 and sold the fronts for $225.

I've been checking CorvetteForum but there are several WTB ads over there as well, so they seem to be moving fast. I have a lead on 2 rears on Craigslist, so I might have all I need.

Same here, trying to find two rears. I have two right now, and don't want to buy brand new fresh ones from house of wheels since we pretty much race where it's all loose gravel anyway.

Ebay, craigslist and various corvette forums are best. Also, check LS1TECH.com
Most of the time, they are listed as a set of (4) with 17" front and 18" rears. If you find a complete set of front and rears priced reasonably, buy it. Then list the fronts on this site or CMC or American Iron sites, and the fronts will sell quickly.

Generally , yes. Most replicas, are pretty cheaply made, and are typically very heavy.
Personally, I would not trust "replica" wheels on track.
I would only consider OE/factory wheels and genuine race wheels for track use.

That's what I thought. How do you verify the wheels are OEM?

OEM wheels will have the GM stamp on them, will say Alcoa or Speedline on the back.

I am interested in a pair for fronts if anyone looking for rears end up with a full set.

I picked up two more rears this weekend for $250. I don't need anymore, but I'm still interested if anyone finds some that are cheap (and by cheap, I mean under $125 per wheel).

Where are you finding them? Are you finding them locally or having them shipped?

I've found all of mine lately on Craigslist. I had to drive a few hours to pick them up, but the gas was still cheaper than shipping (and I got to inspect them before I bought).

So you are the reason there are a bunch of lonely Corvettes on jack stands without wheels. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/2thumbs.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/2thumbs.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/2thumbs.gif)

What tires are you running on them, and what size spacers are you running?
