There's the ones on eBay, can't think of the name of the company though... I think Thunder Racing sells those exact ones too.

But If I order them off e-bay they will at least ship them some place I can use them

Thunder sucks anymore. can only ship to address on card. Makes it a PITA when the customer lives 500 miles away!

Thanks man!


Hmmmm.....

Check discount tires direct. I used them for mine when they were still a site sponsor. They have them but you have to look for them, they won't come up on an fbody search.

Yeah, I don't know what's up with Thunder... I used to be able to email them a question, but now, they don't answer most of the time. And when they do, it ain't for days... seems their service has gone down hill.

Those will look SHARP Ellis! I bought my ZR1s from Schwab. I think they are American Replicas or something like that. Nice quality, price matched, with warranty, mounted & balanced.

Well Unfortunately they do not make that wheel in the size I want so I guess black Ten spoke C-5 Z06 wheels will have to do

I think the Z06 wheels look better anyways, the C6 with rivets on C5's I've seen are not impressive.... There is a new Camaro mag in the stores with A SWEET LS1 car with black Z06 wheels I WISH I could talk the old lady into a set they look mean!

There are a couple of styles of Z06 Wheels. Mine are Z06 Motorsports and have a sharper or edge to the lip. The style Howard has have more of a rounder edge lip.

I purchased mine from wheel store in LA. Les Schwab carries the sharper edge lip style, available with or without rivets, in Chrome, All Black, Black with polished lip.
