Customer Spotlight: Derek’s C7 Z06 x BC Forged KL11 19/18″

We do A LOT of C7 Corvettes and we do them a number of different ways. Derek’s car is a great example of a different rendition based on his goal. Drive-ability with extreme traction requirements. Upfront: You see essentially a “stock” size wheel and tire combo, with a touch more offset to make it flush. This keeps the car driveable on the street. Street driving a 18×6 or 19×6 is not ALWAYS what people want to do. In this case its a BC Forged KL11 forged monoblock. Coming in at a very light 20.5 LBS in 19×10 +30!

Out back, we see a different approach. BC Forged KL11, but not in the standard 20×12 most C7 owners run. This time 18×12 +50 at 20.1 LBS each, wrapped in a Mickey Thompson ET Street SS 345/35r18. One of the stickiest tires we carry for these high horsepower C7s. Derek’s car is what I can call best of both worlds. Drive it to the strip, make a few passes so fast you get kicked out, and comfortably drive the car home after!

Now, onto the details:

Corvette GIVEAWAY! Ruckus Company C7 Z51 X RSR R902

Who doesn’t like a free car? Especially when that free car is a modded C7 Z51?! When we got approached by Ruckus, we didn’t know much about them to start. We quickly found out these guys are rad, and love to have a good time! Mark Chance and the team at Ruckus Company (formerly Drift Flix) contacted us for the right wheels for this giveaway, we knew the options would be limited due to time and also the fact that this is a Z51. The Z51 is one of the HARDEST cars to find wheel options for. The brakes are huge, offsets are high so not a lot of wheels work off the shelf, or even custom for that matter.

We knew RSR would be a great choice. The R902 is fully forged and ready to ship. So we knew with a time constraint like Marks, these would be a killer look and not set back the giveway at all. More importantly the quality of the wheels matched that of the car.The RSR Forged R902 is exclusively designed to fit Chevrolet Corvette and is true forged at a price point no one can beat.

Wheel Design:
RSR R902

Finishes:

Customer Spotlight: Julio’s C7 Corvette Z06 x BC Forged HB29 x Toyo R888R

The C7 corvette is no stranger to us. We actually at this point in time OWN a C7 Gransport (feature coming soon). The Z06 is the big brother to our own car, sharing MOST of the same parts minus the heart of the beast. The Z06 and and C7 for that matter is what the term “bang for the buck” shows you in the dictionary when you look it up.

There is NO better car for the money that can take on Mclaren, Ferrari, Porsche, ANYTHING you can really think of. The Corvette IS competitive. One thing all of us Corvette guys really love is traction. This set up is a different look/take on the R888R set up we run on our own car. The R888R is basically a street legal slick.

Enter Julio’s C7 Z06 in a very unique color and add some SERIOUS wheels/rubber and you have truly a winning combination. Now onto the details! (look how meaty that is!!)

Wheel Design:

Customer Spotlight: Jason’s C7 Corvette Gransport x BC Forged RS45

The Corvette is a car we hold near and dear to heart. I grew up around them and I happen to own a 2019 Corvette Grandsport while I write this article on one of my Corvette brothers! The C7 is the pinnacle of the front engine Corvette. It does NOT get much better than the Grandsport either. More details to come on my feelings of the car in our shop C7 feature post coming soon.

The one flaw, the wheels. Chevy really dropped the ball on the factory wheels. The factory are a known issue (cracking, bending, etc). Jason trusted us to make his wheel woes go away. Enter the BC Forged RS45. A lightweight fully forged set up with a TON of concave for a Corvette, and shown here fitting OEM tire specs. For the money BC Forged cannot be beat.

Now onto the fun part, the specs:

Customer Spotlight: Alan’s C6 Corvette Z06 x Forgestar F14

When you think about the C6 Corvette, the 7 liter Z06 stands CLEARLY out in my mind as one of my favorites. In fact, I went into a dealer to look at a used one this year and left with a C7 Grandsport! (Story for another time).

The factory wheels and specs leave a lot to be desired. When Alan came to us for a great fitting, lightweight and all around quality option that didn’t kill his wallet, the Forgestar F14 was a perfect match. The specs we did 19×10 +30 and 20×12 +50 allow for a wide array of tires. 285/30r19 and 335/25r20 are the norm for this set up. Customer’s can and will try other sizes as well like the 345/30r20 shown here on Alan’s car in back. The color Alan really wanted something cool and different. We decided quickly on the brushed DDT.
