Does anyone know if the 2001 c5 Z06 front wheel will clear the calipers on the 09 Cadillac?

It is a full 2 inches smaller diameter. Just wondering if our caliper will fit in the 17inch rim.

c5 Z06 is 17X9.5

V2 is 19X9

I would say no. I can't get my fingers in the clearance let alone 1 inch...

someone should try it.

I'm going to try and get my front c6z rims on their this weekend, just ran out of time last weekend.

I thought so as well. Thought I would ask. Good luck this weekend.

I just took a peek at the vehicle. It is pretty tight in there with the stockers.

Sorry for the post.

It's also the spoke curve too. I was at Tire Rack over the weekend, and a lot of smaller "tuner" wheels fit. They have the spokes that curve out specifically for bigger calipers.

From what I was looking at was if the caliper would fit inside the 17inch barrel. I do not think it will.

I would just about guarantee that a 17 inch wheel would not fit (front end). When I tried mounting up the 18 inch spare the clearance was extremely tight at the barrel (requires machining to make it fit).

Thanks for the confirmation. I should have looked at it before putting up this thread.

Thread: clicking wheel tsb?
I think herein lies the answer. The stock V Wheels have this ongoing proble frequently reported.:stirpot:
So! Choosing a smaller diameter wheel will likely only exascerbate this.
More important than wheel diameter would be wheel offset spacing clearance to the brake calipers.????????:suspect:
