Because my wheels are stock & I think a C5 would look better with some after market wheels like Matte Black Machined Face w/ StainlessLip would look kick A$$ on my C5.And besides that I couldn't afford them at that price $2300.00 .Now if I was to win them I could get the tires .But if I don't win I would still be happy for the winner .............

Those wheels would definitely look a lot better than the stock ones I have on the car now. I have saved for years for this project and due to unforeseen problems I spent so much extra money on the interior/engine/trans/differential that I used the money I had set aside for paint and wheels. Thanks for the opportunity and it is the contests like this that make this the best corvette site on the internet.

good luck you guys. I hope to be able to get on the internet while I'm deployed to see who wins. I would enter my Vette, but I may get rid of the 99 for a Zo6 when I get back. I think I'll be able to do more with that than my 99 C5. (performance wise) Anyway, that's my 10 cents. Good luck.

I believe I should win a set of these wheels because I have NEVER had a hand out in my life. I would be extremely grateful and proud to show off a nice set of wheels like these. I am also very involved with Corvettes and the community, as the shop I work for strictly works on Corvettes, so the exposure might generate future sales for Vossen Wheels!

Well I made a stupid deal with my wife before I got the vette. I told her I wouldn't spend any money on the Corvette until I finished paying off her car($10,000.00 left) that a good 2 years. The only way I have "bought" any parts for this is through gift cards. Looking back this was a stupid deal and sense I told my wife one thing I have to stand by what I said.

I have only had the Vette for a couple months. I plan on buying or at least cleaning up the break calipers and painting them with my birthday money gift cards (which is 2/22 ) I love to look at the brake calipers through the wheels. Plus it's better because it helps keep the brakes cooler, which reduces brake fade.
FYI I know it's not a real good pic my wheels but there are no holes in it at all.

What a great way to
1) Give me a b-day present ;-) LOL
2) Me keep my word to my wife
3) Keep me motivate and restoring. With out thinking about the big gap between My bday and Christmas. LOL
4) Bring some cool new style to an old classic
5) I could sell my old rims and use that money to buy other stuff for the vette!!! (if it's ok with the wife)

I would also be happy to put an advertizment sticker on my window as I plan to do a lot of cruises and car shows.


Thanks for the consideration!!!
Need your help with getting this. I think we have all made stupid deals in the past with our wife/girlfriend....what ever. Help bail me out LOL and keep the wave!!!

p.s. This was pics the day I picked it up from the guy. This is my first and only vette. I don't want y'all thinking I have 3 vettes. ( which would be really cool)
