I have finally decided to go with 18" polished C5 wheels all the way around my Impala. I know I will need two inch spacers, but are there any other factors I need to take into account? Lastly, if anyone knows where I can find these wheels I have looked all over.

I realize that I can buy sets of C5 wheels all day long I sell Corvette parts for a living. However, none of our vendors want to seperate the 17" front wheels from the 18" rears. I don't really want to buy two sets of wheels, to then have to sell two pairs of front 17" wheels. Come on now I am a little smarter n dat........cwm1

Ok, Hope you figure it out, then.

Ok. Lemme reconfigure that answer.

It is very rare to find a full set of the same size. Very rare. You'll have to troll around vette forums and build one set out of two. Or be very patient.

Are you referring to the Vette C5 "wagon" wheels or some other Vette wheels? If, so, then I have (4) immaculate with zero nicks 18" wagon wheels I would be willing to sell, if your interested. I bought these from one of the Vette forums that I never had the chance to put on. But their the light grey color ones, like below.

Ok, maybe you don't!

I presume you've checked the for sale section...

When I got mine, I was able to make bids on 4 seperate 18" wheels via Ebay in about 15 minutes.

Winning bids came to about $195 + shipping.

Yes......I do love Ebay ;) .

No, the Vette wheels are at my house in storage. I have my (4) 8x15 truck wheels sitting at your house that need to get repainted
