Hi guys,

Looking for some more traction for your Z?

With the wide fenders on your car, you can squeeze in some wide rubber under the back (and front) of the car with help from LG Motorsports and ForgeLine.

This particular Z is running the very popular ForgeLine SP3P in a 18/19 split for street and shown here with his 'strip' setup with 18x13 rears wrapped in huge 345/18 BFG Drag Radials. (Fronts are 18x10's with the factory GoodYear tire).





There is something very right about a pair of 13" rollers on the back of a Corvette :devil:

Those look awesome!
I'm getting ready to order Forgeline's for my Z06.
What are the specs on those wheels
and what tire did you put on them?
My original Goodyear's have 8500 miles on them
and are just about shot.
I'm leaning towards the SP3P Gunmetal w/polished lip.
Thanks.

That's a whole lot of rubber! Looks mean! It amazes me that the car is still able to break traction...simply awesome! :thumbsup:

Those wheels are the SP3P wheels, black centers and chrome lips. In the pictures shown 18x10 fronts and 18x13 rears. I'll shoot you a PM with some sizes, pricing and options.

The bigger wheels/tires look awesome. I'm running CCW 19x10 fronts with 275/30/19 Michelin Pilots and 19x13 rears with 345/30/19s. John nailed the offset well. Serious rubber on the back not only performs better, but looks incredible.

Wheels For Z06

Hi Anthony - thanks for the PM.
I would like to go with the 18 x 9.5's and 19 x 13's.
Would also like your reccomendation on street tires.
I had Michelin Pilot Sports on my 03 Z06 and loved them!
My 06 Z is Machine Silver Metallic.
I like the contrast with the gunmetal/polished wheels.
The black centers are pretty hot as well but a little too much contrast.
What is the additional cost to match a color?
How long does it take for a custom color?

Many thanks,
Chris Driggs

I've seen tat car at local meets and both the car and the owner are bad ass. Definately looks a little different than when he had his 19's on but those wide ass 18's sure do look nice! :partyon:
