The bagged suspension trend has been a bit surprising to us since we don’t remember seeing many (or any?) C7 Corvettes with the airbag suspension, yet the last few custom wheel videos for C8s all seem to have it. For those that do a lot of shows and events in their cars, the ability to drop your C8 to the pavement is a pretty cool look as the video shows.
But enough about airbags, let’s talk custom wheels since it is #WheelWednesday!
Ferrada specializes in concave wheel designs and these wheels featured on the C8 Corvette are from their Concave Madness CM2 line-up. We really like some of these details on the wheels which include the 10-spoke design, the sharp edges of the spokes, and the larger curved outer lip. These are specifically called Machine Black with a Chrome lip and they are one of the five designs available. Other available colors include Matte Black, Machine Silver, Matte Graphite, and Brushed Cobre.
While most of the C8s we see with custom wheels go to a larger stance than the OEM spec of 19/20s on the front and rears, this Arctic White C8 went with a box set-up of 20x9s on the front and 20x11s on the rears. You could do a staggered set if you wish as their sizing ranges from 19×8.5s to 22x11s.
Ferrada doesn’t share any prices on their website as they will refer you to one of their dealers. But a search for CM2 wheels shows they are priced roughly between $550-$700 per wheel depending on size and finish, making a set of four very affordable.
