19/20 inch wheels without Z51?
 
Does anyone know from past experience if you will be able to order the 19/20 inch wheels as opposed to the 18/19 inch without paying for the Z51 package?

It is possible... wouldn't rule it out just yet. On pg 10 of the Sales Guide there are two available options for wheels in machine face or chrome w/o the Z51 package, although the sizes aren't provided. Eventually we'll see for sure... :stingray:

You couldn't do so on a C6.
But it would make sense (at least IMO) to offer just a wheel upgrade - as an accessory purchase if need be.

I don't see that we'll be able to from GM initially. I'm definitely loving the Z51 wheels and spoiler but want to make sure that the suspension part of the package won't beat me up too badly. Here along the East Coast's largest parking lot (I-95) there are some really crappy roads. Baltimore has monster potholes, lots of concrete seams, grooves, etc. Even my GTI gets a little jouncy at times so if the MRC really helps soak up all the bumps & lumps then I'm all for it. Otherwise, I'll probably get the spoiler aftermarket and then get wheels on my own. Honestly, for the 95% street driving I'll do probably, dry sump and the gearing would be overkill.

MRC would be amazing for you. I had it on the last Corvette and it did wonders on the side streets of Detroit, which at the time were often not in good shape. And that was second generation MRC!
