Finding cool wheels that fit the C6 for less than $4,500 has been impossible. Does anyone know if you can use spacers effectively so that you can buy "non-custom" wheels?

I really like the Kinesis K-88's/ But I am having a tough time justifying the $5,700 wheel, tire and sensor price.

Not usually a good idea bro. Spacers reduce the amount of thread you have to put the lug nuts on, or you'll need longer studs.

But, you don't want to use them to make wheels fit that don't fit.

Cool wheels are expensive. No doubt about that. Some are just.... :thud:

What about adapters that fit the lug pattern and extend the studs?
Then when you look through your new expensive wheels you will be staring at a big nasty spacer that puts a huge gap between the rear of the wheel face and rotor. It will look a bit ghetto. ;)

I guess I'll be writing a big check soon.
If you powdercoated your wheels a gloss black, but put a 1/4" red pinstripe on the edge of the wheel lip.... It'd look fricking incredible... and it'd run you a whopping $400 at the powdercoater. :D

Good Point

I thought about that, but I am installing the Procharger next week and I really want a set of 20's to off set the torque.
