Running 18" rims all around? I want CCW Classics.

I saw a post a while ago with someone running stock Z06 rear rims on the front and back with a 315 tire on all four corners. I really like the idea because I could rotate the tires on the car.

Would this cause any issues in drivability? Does anyone know what the stock off set is on the C5 Z06 rim. I would like to get a set of CCW Classics with the centers black in the 18x10.5 size on all four corners.

And lastly, would the new C6 Z06 brakes fit inside a 18x10.5 CCW Classic rim?

Thanks.

Dude It's not worth it. Stay with stock offsets. I learned you can't rotate the same rims sizes with differeant offsets. I'm going threw this mess right now. I sent back rims that were all 18's with the same offsets, which made my rear too skinny. You could go with the same rim but different off sets I guess, but I have talked to more that disagree with this than say it's ok.

I have found the thread where someone is running the rear Z06 rims on the front and he said he hasn't had any issues.

I'll post the thread when I find it again.

I'm not saying it can't be done, but man I was having a hard time getting macthing tires. I decided to go with 18 frt and 19 rr and I'm still having to search for a set that I want with a good price. I may have to forget about the discount and break the piggy bank, or like my girlfriend says suck it up and deal wit it.

Its not about the money for me, and I haven't had any problems locating 295 tires, and thats what I was planning on running on all 4 corners.

I just don't want to make a several thousand dollar mistake buying rims that won't work.

A while back I had the first CCW 505 18"s all the way around, my Z tracked the road grooves bad, needless to say, I went back to the CCW 18/19" combo and that issue was solved.
