I went and ordered custom rims where I had to define all the measurements. They then take the measurements and machine each wheel. I was nervous as it was hard to find out what every manufacturer is exactly using for their C8 rims. I found some info on the BBS rims for the C8, so I went with their widths. They increase the width by 1/2 on both front and rear and you can still fit the OEM tires. For the offsets I combed the internet to see what other people were doing, and I made a table of offsets that would compare pics on the rims and making sure people said they didn't result in making their tires rub. The specs I went with are as follows
Front: 19 x 9j Offset 45
Rear: 20x11.5j Offset 52
Bolt Pattern: 5 x 120

The style I picked was off of an Alfa-Romeo. The clover leaf style is one of my favorites.

Well through some strange miracle, I got it right and they actually fit...phew :Hurray: However I bought black lugs from ACS but they didn't fit the new rims properly. The place that installed them had something called Track Nuts or Tech Nuts so I used theirs. I will probably sell my ACS black lug nuts in the future or try to return them...

Very nice! Those offsets are also recommended by HRE who make a set specifically for the C8

You might want to put C8 in the title of your wanted ad. Z51 applies to many generations of Corvette and for the C8, the rims are the same for Z51 and non-Z51.
