How C5 Corvette Rims Affect Your Vehicle
As a practical matter, all cars must have wheels. However, C5 Corvette wheels are an altogether different matter. A good set of wheels does 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. 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 a 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 automobile is fully level to the ground and looking straight ahead, with neither end diving up or down.
To put it another way, 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. Therefore, to the mind's eye, 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, the single most effective thing you can do to influence your C5's mean posture is to fit it with the right wheels. We sell several types of C5 Corvette wheels for you to choose from. Base-style C5 wheels, as the name suggests, are a direct replacement for the OEM wheels. If you drive the Z06 sport trim, then C5 Corvette Z06 wheels will complement the body perfectly. Cup-style wheels have a more refined look for those who take pride in their car. You can add C6 ZR1 wheels and C7 Stingray wheels that have C5 fitment, blending the 1997-2004 body style with more modern rims. Corvette Mod C5 custom wheels, such as Bullet Series wheels and Cray wheels, stand out from anything else you can buy.
With so many options, the right course of action might be to first 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.
