The Spare?

silver 80,

Welcome to the Corvette Action Center Community..

I have a 1981 and I would think they would probably be the same. I'm not exactly sure of the tire size, but the rim is 15"x5" wheel. I just looked it up in my GM Shop Manual. The owners manual was no help.

C-3 backspacing is 4".


The spare tire rim itself is a 15" x 5" wheel. The factory supplied spare tire mounted up under the rear. I've never thought of using a bigger wheel size or tire size.. so I'm not sure what would fit up under there and still allow the cover to close back up under the car.

Well my 79 has a 4 inch backspacing it also has the 255 tire option, but I'm not sure about a 80.
