  • C7 Rims on F-body

    Anyone know if the C7 stingray rims will fit an F-body? I know they are 19/18 combo. Any fitment issues or spacers required?

    Also, does anyone have photos of these rims on an F-body. No matter the color…

    They’ll fit, Goggle C7 rims on Fbody, it brings up LS1tech, has some threads and pics, looks good. Later on I might do some 18’s but it will be awhile. They say OEwheels is a good place to look. Just reread your post, don’t know about Stingray rims. Might be in those threads on LS1tech.

      Must be my internet I can't find anything on google and I can only find a few threads on LS1tech with none of them giving any confident answers. I made a post over there too but it's been crickets.

              This what I gathered from reading a few posts, C7 Stingray rims have a different bolt pattern but aftermarket companies make them for F bodies.

                That one link you posted Steve had the exact rims on the TA. Looks like they needed a 1.25” spacer to do it. Question is where can I buy a high quality 1.25” spacer that isn’t cheap chinese crap…

                  I got my 1” spacers from Summit, I think it’s been over 10 years, not sure.

                    Ok, from what I can find out the base model C7 rims like the one pictured above is the following size:

                    Rear Wheel - 19x10 79mm offset
                    Front Wheel - 18x8.5 56mm offset

                    I have read that for rear rims with that offset to work I would need to run a 1.25" spacer - is that true? I think these sound like they might be similar spec to the OEM C6 rims? What size bore/hub would I need to get for my spacer?

                    Am I correct in assuming that the front will not need a spacer to work? Did anyone that runs this type of offset wheel need to eliminate the rear bump stops?

                      I had a factory Vette 17 and 18 combo on my 2001 Bird and I needed to remove the bump stops I also needed to remove the brackets with a sawzall.

                        really? My 18/17 setup is fine. I never needed to remove the bump stop or brackets. Did you have an adjustable panhard rod?

                        I am going to look at and hopefully grab the C7’s tonight. I need to order the 1.25” spacers for the back. Probably going to order the spacers to the states so test fitment will need to wait.

                        Excited for the setup…

                            Almost didn’t grab them, but came to a deal and I pulled the trigger. Now they sit ready to be installed when I fetch the rest of my parts…
