I'm looking for a set of camaro style ralleye wheels (1st gen style) in 18" sizes. Does anyone make these? I've seen Wheel Vintiques makes them in 17" sizes, but i need the 18" wheels to clear my c6 z06 calipers.

Nate, will those wheels offer enough hub depth or 'brake space' to clear the calipers?

Scott,

That is a good question. I know the calipers will clear 18's fine, about the rallye i'm not sure. I want to run rallyes with copo dogdish hubcaps for that sleeper look..so thats the look im going with. If the calipers will not work, i guess they will have to go on the camaro.

Something that you might want to look into is testing their fitment with a template. Baer has templates that you can print out and cut and set them in the wheel to see if your hub depth and inside diameter of the wheel will allow the calipers to clear. The Baer 6S system with 14" rotors is a direct replacement for the C6 ZO6 brakes.

Thanks Scott, that will help out a lot! I'm hoping i can find a place that makes 18" ralleye's otherwise i'll just go with a smaller size. I really think the ralleye wheel would complete the look i'm going for.

Those would be it! $520 a wheel though, ouch! I'd be painting them too..maybe i will just settle with the 16" steel wheel...decisions..decisions!:willy: Thanks for the help though. This place is great!

I know he already posted the BAER kit measurements, but I figure these wont hurt.

Actual C6Z brake measurements

And btw, I doubt those will clear the caliper face. Im willing to bet your gonna need 1" spacer or better.
