Hello, I have a question for the tech boys out there. Will the cross drilled / slotted brake rotors fit a 2005 XLR that also fit a corvette C6 2005. This website has them for $249.00 URL below. Also will the Corvette Wheels work on the XLR 18"x 8.5 for the front and 19" x 10" for the rear? Corvette of Houston has them in chrome.

P.S. I plan an keeping the O.D. of the tires close to stock 27.400" high for both front and rear so the computor don't go nuts.

corvette wheels will NOT fit the XLR. while the bolt pattern is the same, the off-set is not. The XLR trunk is much wider to accomodate the roof, leaving too little room in the wheel well. The corvette wheels will also hang out about 2".
Don't know about the rotors, but you can buy aftermarket slotted/drilled made for the XLR.



BTW...not really a tech boy, just been there, done that!
when I ordered my custom wheels, the manufacturer just assumed corvette wheels would fit...............

1_XLR, Nice pearl red XLR. Mine is the same color. Thanks for the heads up on the wheels. What brand of wheels are yours? Also what are your sizes? and tire combo. About the rotors for an XLR who has them for an XLR.

20" 3 piece alloy.... tires are 245 front and 275 rear


there's a few guys here with the rotors that may be able to tell you which ones to get. I've seen 2 or 3 makers on Ebay.

Local Iowa I am. Will you give me the wheel width and offsets? They look expensive did you buy direct? I will have to save. I just put on the Corsa Exhaust.

width is 8.5 and 9.5 don't know the offset.
I went direct to the manufacturer when my local dealer threw his hands up after the third fitting. Ended up paying the dealers price
