I'm always looking to upgrade and restyle my cars especially for something that is different . That said I've got a deal on some OEM C5 Corvette wheels staggered 17.8 front 18.8.5 rear (nice wheels, cheap ) I know the bolt pattern is different and I would have to run a wheel adapter anyone done this and if so any issues clearance etc. I know the speedo will be off . thanks for any info !

Pass on the staggered Vette wheels. Wheel plus tire plus adapter price will be close to just getting the proper wheels/tires that fit in a style you like. Sometimes a deal isn't a deal.

I can pick these up ,the set ,for close to the cost of one wheel and no matter what I do I'll still need tires .I have a set of 15 x 8 Vette rally wheels with flat caps in the big bolt pattern to fit which I'm going to have powder coated to match my paint .This was just a thought as again I've never seen a wagon with Vette wheels .

Know the offset, and make sure it is right. I put drop spindles on my car, and they widened the front track by 1/2 inch one each side. I must use +18 offset to get the tires back where they belong. That is 12 mm (1/2 inch) more than the +6 offset for the stock wheels.
