The GS +40/+59 offsets would look bad on a C5 IMHO.........
You are correct, I wasn't clear on the +79mm offset issue
It would be to deep for my C5 any way as a +74mm is what I run to be near flush depending on tire manf & size. I would need to run a 5mm spacer.....
I understand offset VERY well as this is what I have played with to date:

Interesting fact.........I love my MAG wheels for this reason:

* The Exports have a different offset measurement at the mounting point so as to bring the wheel and tire in-board under the fenderwell approximately 1/2 inch. These wheels can be identified by a Black Line drawn around the circumference of the wheel between the beads. This Black Line will be seen only when the Tire is removed from the Wheel

Domestic / Export Magnesium 5-Spoke RPO N73 **
Front - 17" x 8.5" - #9592638
Rear - 18" x 9.5" - #9592640
** These wheels have always had the offset to meet Export requirements


C6 non Z06/GS

Front 18 x 8.5, +56 mm offset

Rear 19 x 10, +79 mm offset



C6 Z06 & GS (SPEEDLINE is the manufacturer for the GSs)

front: 18 inch x 9.5 inch, +40 offset

rear: 19 inch x 12 inch, +59 offset



FWIW, here are a few photos I've seen from posts on the forum of OEM Z06 wheels and tires mounted on a non Z06 C6. I may slap some GS wheels on one of my C5s for some pics just to see..........


















Here's a pic just to give you an idea of the GS wheels on a C5 look..........there was a set for a good price and I was looking.......but they will not fit right and look poor on a C5 IMHO
