i've seen that spacers are needed for c5 rims on a c4 to acheive the "look", but i haven't seen a thickness discussed. does anyone have them on and remember what it is? thanks chad

I believe a 9.5" wide C5 wheel has the same backspace as a 9.5" wide 88-96 C4 wheel.
That being the case, bolt-on spacers for 84-87 cars should be 3/4" thick. 88-96 cars wont need spacers, the wheels will bolt staight up.

You shouldn't need any spacers for an '88 and up car. I use C5 ZO6 wheels on my '95 and they fit like they came on it.

Used a 30mm spacer on the rear with the C6 Wheels.



Didn't need anything with the C5 wheels shown here.

Don't need 'em

I just mounted some 2000 z06 wheels to my 95 coupe. I was pulling hair wondering which spacers to use after reading all the threads. I just bolted them on and they sit as perfect as did the sawblades. No Problems.

:partyon: :cheers:
