After seeing how great the Z06 wheels look on Ocool's XLR I decided a new look on my XLR-V was needed. Problem is I can't even find the offset for the standard V wheels...let alone the range of tire sizes, wheel widths and offsets that will fit.

Other than Lund and Mallet with their pricey offerings, nobody seems interested in offering even a picture of an XLR with some bling.

Can anybody offer up a suggestion of what sizes might work, where to look or even a pic of the wheels you put on your car?

Does anybody know if the tire pressure sensors on a C6 are the same as what we have on the XLR?

I think Bob ("standby" on this forum) or Mike ("1_XLR"on this forum) will jump in on your question. Both have other wheels and tire sizes on their V`s.

I got Bob`s V wheels on my XLR - I love them:thumbs

Here are two, one from my 04 and one from my 06-V. Also Check these out on wheelwarehouse.com.


20' DUB dirty dogs..........These are also known as dedicated TPM rims which mean they have one location in the rear for the TPM and one in the front for the air stem.

Custom rims for the V which leaked air and I crunched one front and rear while spinning out against the curb, so I went to the DUBS.


20" Foose Stars that I had on the 04. They are still a favorite of mine.
These all will clear the calipers and do have a hub ring.

Some great choices; it sure helps to see them on the car. They all look great! Looks like the XLR with the Foose wheels has been lowered a bit, be careful in my neighborhood with all the speed bumps!

Actually I never touched it. If you look at the XLR on the stand, which is at the Corvette plant in BG, it to is setting at the same height as my platinum. The guys at wheel warehouse will ship and make sure they fit your vehicle the first time and will also send you the hub rings to match up. Ask for Brett Peters and tell him Robert Blackman, the owner of a platinum 06-V sent you. He will know just what you need. These 20" rims will need new tires and you will have no spare or stay with the odd size rims for the V and you can keep your run flats.

You can avoid the middleman so to speak and go directly to the supplier of most of the high end dealers in the Phoenix area. http://wheelspecialists.com/

The same wheels the Lexus dealer wanted 2900 for were 850 installed. Also a great source for chromed OEM wheels for all makes.

After seeing pics of Ocool's XLR with the Chrome Z06 wheels I started checking out the Corvette Forum website again. A set of four wheels runs on average $1000 - $1200; takeoff tires/wheels with fairly fresh run-flat rubber in the neighborhood of $1500 - $2000 with sensors.

Although the stock sizes from a C6 (18x8.5F and 19x10R) might cause a fit issue; there seems to be non-oem copycat wheels that are close enough in size that would work.

A bonus here is on the take-off packages; I believe the C6 sensors are the same p/n as the XLR!

I called my local Caddy dealer to find out what the offset is on the XLR 19" wheel, must be a tough question because he hasn't called back.:nono Still trying to figure out what range of sizes will actually fit.

Thanks for all the feed back in this post, you've made picking a wheel that much harder:thumbs
