C5 Corvette (97-04) Wheels

As a practical matter, all cars must have wheels, but C5 Corvette Wheels are an altogether different matter. As you can see below, Corvette wheels do more than just let your Vette roll down the road. The low-slung profile of a C5 Corvette is a major factor in what makes it an automotive legend, but that is just one aspect of it. Another, is the Corvette's ready-to-take-off stance -- how it sits when just standing still, and for those who don't know, this is something that is influenced to a considerable degree by the car's suspension and course car's wheels.

A car's posture is what gets everybody's attention when it is motionless. It's what makes one vehicle stand out when we’re looking at a long row of cars parked side by side. Good posture is when a car's carriage is at just the right height. Not too high like a truck, nor too low to the ground like a low-rider. Perfect posture is when an auto is fully level to the ground and looking straight ahead, neither end diving up or down. A vehicle with good posture looks fast while standing still. It's a psychological thing. A car sitting "too high" just seems "top heavy", meaning it won't handle curves all that well and therefore to the mind's it's perceived to be "slow". It's something we instantly notice without thinking about it. On the other hand, a car sitting too low to the ground may give you a faint impression that it will bottom out over bumps in the road, making it a total non-performer.

If the perfect stance is what you are after, then know that the single most effective thing that you can do to influence your C5's mean posture is fit it with the right wheels. There are a number of C5 Corvette wheels for you to choose from, but for you, the right course of action might be to browse some stock photos of your car posed with different wheels and see which style makes the car look like it runs faster to you. When you believe you have it, come on back and peruse our full inventory of graceful and elegant C5 Corvette wheels we have right here.
