I know that quite a few people here have used CCW Wheels on their GTM. I am planning to also.

I thought that I would have more time to order the tires and wheels, and have them before the body gets back from paint, and is ready to be mounted. But it looks like that's going to happen much sooner than I thought.

So, what has been your experience once you've ordered wheels from CCW? Are they quick to get them to you (2 weeks or less), or do they make you sweat it out?

Also, since these are custom made wheels, are the offsets correct, so that we wouldn't need to use the spacers that Factory Five includes in the kit?

I bought a set for my vette. I was very happy. I got a set that, if I diceded to put after market calipesr on I would not have an issue. they know their stuff. I think it was 3 weeks on my delivery. As far as the offsets, I would call them. i'm sure they have the specs and can tell you exactly what you'll need. nice guys..

Stage7 - you need more rivets on those panels...don't think they are secure enough yet.
Haha...they were already on the car when I bought it. They've since been removed and reinstalled.

Call CCW and talk to either Chip or John and they can take care of you. They're the ones that helped me to get the wheels for that first gray/silver GTM I built. They've already got all the offset info on file for the GTM, so they can set you up.

CCW has a great turn around. I ordered my Vette wheels custom offset for fender flares and big brakes on a Monday. They were shipped that same Friday and I had them the next Wed. :yes:

Thanks Shane - I think it was Chip that I've spoken to in the past, but I just couldn't remember whether he said that I would still need the spacers or not.

Chriswtx - That sounds like very quick turn around. A week to 10 ays is awesome!

Stage 7 - I'm thinking. I was actually thinking about ordering the C2R's or the SP16's. Are yours CR14's? They look good...

CCW wheels and Big Brakes

IF you plan to run big brakes, such as Wilwood 13 or 14" rotors, w 4/6 pistons - Need to let CCW know such that Offset could be performed to accomodate.

I sent a quick note to CCW asking them about the Z06 brake fitment, and they assured me that with the Corsair line, clearance is not an issue. But you have to let them know ahead of time if you order the SP/T profiles.

Thanks for the heads up. That could have been an issue, because I absolutely forgot to mention it when I bought them.

They clear my AP Racing BBK setup fairly easily. I can't wait to see them polished.

Regarding the trip. I'm planning on going to Va Speed soon, so it will be at "little" closer no? lol
