I'm going to be buying two new rear tires soon, and want to keep the old ones to sell, and am wondering if they'll fit in the back hatch of my C5 coupe (it's not an FRC, just a regular coupe) and will I be able to close it completely? It looks like there is enough room but I figured someone on here must've tried it out and can confirm it for me.

Yes, but you might need to fold the passenger seat forward at bit. One tire will go on the front right, the other on the rear left.

I think 26" tires fit fine. I've carried drag radials many times.

Excellent, thanks! These cars do carry more stuff than people give them credit for. They just don't carry too many people. :)

I have fit a set of 4 in both my coupes several times 3 in the back one in the front. There is a lot of room in the back!!

Never happen in a convertible.

But you can fit all four C5-size wheels in the trunk. (Z06 sizes wouldn't make it though.) If you don't mind the odd looks, you can even manage a set of fronts in the passenger seat too. :)

HAHAHA Yes, I imagine you could and I can imagine the looks! :D

As for the tires, as you know, there's not enough depth. ;)
