(2) OEM GM 17x11" 50mm Grand Sport (ZR-1/SS) wheels

(2) OEM rear wheels from a 1996 Grand Sport. These are the A-mold (JWL) ZR-1/SS wheels that everyone wants for their F-body/Corvette and extremely difficult to find these days. Not replicas/aftermarket, not the "deep dish" style that all of the manufacturers sell now. These are the deep lug 50mm (not 36mm) offset 17x11" wheels. Extremely lightweight (21lbs).

The wheels have the original paint from GM (black w/machined lip). Physically, the wheels are in excellent condition. No damage, no curbs, no repairs, no cracks, not bent. The paint has a few small marks here and there, but aesthetically are still very nice. A refinished set of (4) of these recently sold for $2500.

I also have a pair of 315/35-17 Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3 tires for these wheels that I would entertain selling with the purchase of the rims for an additional $500. These are currently $420/each from Summit. No damage, punctures, or repairs. Purchased new in 2017. Less than 400 miles with essentially full tread depth. No burnouts or track usage. These are as nice as a used tire gets.

Can email or text pictures.

$1000

Are these wheels and tires still available? I don’t know if you remember the name George Baxter from the early days of the LT1, but he is recreating his 9.0-second 30th SS convertible, and is interested in a real set of the GS 17x11 wheels. Would require shipping to FL. Might also want the GY tires, since he already has GS-C's for the front.

Hey Fred! Good to hear from you. Of course I remember George! I had no idea that he was recreating that car....that is great! I remember first seeing his car at a GMHTP shootout in E-town right after he first bought it back in 1997.

The wheels are still available and I have no issue at all shipping them to Florida.

Thanks Fred, I appreciate it

Is he chronicling his new build? I'd love to see some pictures. Did he find/buy a 30th SS Convertible already?

He found a 30th SS convert with 23,000 miles. At this point his “re-creation” is appearance, hence the 17x11 wheels. Car had some mild mods (head work, cam, gears, headers), but the (recently rebuilt) A4 shifting was screwed up (his original purchase had the T56). He was looking for a tuner, and I set him up with Moe Bailey. Moe really delivered with an excellent mail-order tune.

At this point, he's happy with the car, but knowing George, he'll be doing more when he gets the urge. I gave him a link to this thread, but I think the $$$$ set him back. I told him to contact you direct. I'm at the point where I want to sell my Formula, and I have a 17-year old set of the AFS GS replicas. I could sell the car with the Pro-Stars/slicks, and part out the AFS replicas, I guess. Problem is they have 17-year old tires on them, hardly used, including 315/35-17 BFG G-Force Drag Radials..... useful for shows, not for driving.

To the top. Price lowered to $800 for the rims. I also have another set of Grand Sport wheels (2) mounted with 315/35-17 Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3 tires with 95% tread life (2015 date of manufacture). Iím asking $1200 for the set of wheels with tires.
