c5 rims on c3


grease monkey

was curious to know if c5 rims would fit on my 1981. If they don't does any one sell adaptors? Any help is greatly appreciated.

1981 Brand New, Bone Stock

Hey Monkey,
Welcome to the CAC, you'll find lots of info and friendly people here. I don't have the answer to your question, but someone here will. I just wanted to welcome you!

Hey Grease Monkey,
It's very unlikely that you'll be able to put C5 wheels on your shark. A number of companies sell adaptors to put 16 inch wheels from the C4s on sharks but most I've seen require offset trailing arms. Until you have a rear wheel bearing rebuild scheduled, the money you'll spend on offset trailing arms is a lot of money just to be able to move to bigger rims.
