The C8 Corvette is Chevrolet’s supercar-killer, offering exotic-level performance with a sports car price tag. It’s a true work of art with sharp body lines, advanced aerodynamics, and thrilling performance. Compared to previous generations, the eight-gen features better handling and responsiveness, more even weight distribution, greater visibility, improved engine cooling, and superior performance. Although the engine is now located behind the passenger compartment, it remains a 6.2-liter V8, albeit one that delivers 490 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. With the dual-mode performance exhaust that comes with the optional Z51 package, it makes 495 horses.
All that power means that you’ll surely be going places with the C8, and fast. And with that, you will definitely want some sweet wheels to give your ‘Vette a more customized look. Our customer chose the new VR Forged D01 monoblock wheels for his C8 Corvette and it’s safe to say that this was a match made in heaven. The car was first lowered on a set of VR Performance Front Lowering Collars, which gives it a more aggressive look. C8 models with the factory front lift kit have a ride height that needs to be lowered in order to achieve that bold stance that the Z51 cars have without the nose lift. Since the rear is already adjustable from the factory, VR came up with lowering collars for the front to even out the look.
After lowering his C8, this customer knew that a fresh set of wheels would really enhance the overall look of this build. The D01 forged monoblock wheels are ideal for sports cars like the Corvette because they are not only stylish but also incredibly lightweight and durable. The D01s feature an enthralling design with several “V” elements all around and spot-on machine work that shows the strict attention to detail paid to these wheels. It’s a unique design that really compliments the bold lines and angles of the C8 body. And the durable, sleek matte black finish looks great against the high-gloss Arctic White factory paint job.
For reference, this Corvette C8 sits on 20×9.5 +38mm 5×120 D01 wheels at the front and 21×12.5 +58mm 5×120 wheels at the rear. The front wheels weigh 11.4 kilograms (25.1 pounds) and the rear wheels are 13.9 kilograms (30.6 pounds). Each D01 forged wheel has a load rating of up to 690 kilograms (1521 pounds). Recommended tire size for this set is 255/30/20 and 325/25/21, respectively.
