YouTuber Street Speed 717 picked up his 2020 Corvette Stingray last week and on Saturday he takes a drive to have a set of custom wheels installed on the car. It’s a great video on multiple levels as Mike still can’t believe he is driving a C8 Corvette, and his enthusiasm and excitement are fun to watch.
Going on the Black C8 are Brixton PF8 wheels sized 20″ in the fronts and 21″ in the rears, a step up from the Stingray’s 19/20 stock wheels. But here’s the kicker…these Brixton’s were originally on a C7 Z06! As the 2020 Corvette is wider, the wheels appear to (mostly) fit but the C7 lug nuts are smaller than the C8s and that required a run to Pep Boys where they found lug nuts that fit the 2020 (FYI sized M14x1.50 thread).
So let that sink in a minute…C7 Z06 wheels fit on a C8? Oh, the aftermarket possibilities! Okay, so they aren’t a perfect fit as Mike takes a closer look at them when he is back in his garage at the very end of the video. But they work, and for some, that’s good enough!
