The C6 Corvette was the sixth generation of the American icon sold between 2005 and 2013. While the proportions were similar to that of the C5, the C6 boasted distinct changes to the fascias and wheelbase, making it instantly recognizable. While purists weren’t too fond of Corvette breaking the 40-year tradition with the C6’s new exposed headlamps, their nerves were settled after learning about its roomier cabin, improved aerodynamics, powerful LS2 engine, and overall enhanced performance. For decades, the Corvette has been the go-to car for enthusiasts looking to get the best performance value for their buck in America. And the C6 is no exception to this!
Our customer Perry Burnett, the owner of a 2008 Corvette, was looking for a way to ramp up the look of his sports car. Investing in a new set of wheels is really one of the easiest and most popular ways to personalize a vehicle and help set it apart from the rest. Perry didn’t just choose any wheels, though, he opted for the Niche M186 Misano one-piece cast wheels. Niche Wheels is an industry leader and manufacturer of custom aftermarket wheels. From big brake clearance to concave profiles, Niche’s cast monoblock wheels are offered in the widest variety of vehicle fitments and attractive finishes.
Niche’s Misano wheels boast the very best combination of strength and lightweight using the most advanced technology available. They are catered toward some of the most high-performance vehicles on the road. The high-end Misano racing wheels from Niche will give your vehicle the aggressive look and sporty feel it craves. With five Y-spokes extending from the center to the outer edge of the lip, these cast wheels provide superior concavity with staggered fitments and clearance for large caliper upgrades.
This customer’s 2008 C6 Corvette was fitted with a set of 18×8 5×120 +40mm wheels at the front and 19×8.5 5×120 +35mm wheel at the rear in a head-turning Candy Red finish. The lustrous red paint contrasts the black factory paint beautifully and goes well with this ‘Vette’s red calipers, stripes, decals, and accents throughout (including the steering wheel). While the Corvette itself doesn’t need much to grab the attention of passersby, this C6 will now dominate everywhere it goes with these sweet Niche Misano M186 wheels.
