For those readers who may be unaware, Callaway Cars is headquartered out of Old Lyme, Connecticut, and has made a name for itself designing, developing, and manufacturing high-performance components for a variety of cars, pickups, and SUVs, with a specialty in GM vehicles and in particular the Chevy Corvette.
Now, Callaway Cars is offering up these attractive new nine-spoke forged wheels for the C8 Corvette. The wheels feature an open design that will go a long way towards displaying whatever brake package lies underneath, and are available in a variety of finishes, with the example seen here done up in Matte Bronze. Further finishes include Ceramic Polished, Satin Black, Gloss Titanium, and Black Chrome PVD.
Wheel sizing is set at 19 inches by 9 inches in front, and 20 inches by 11.5 inches in the rear. Critically, the forged aluminum construction also provides considerable lightness, with the Callaway rollers cutting 26 pounds of rotational mass as compared to the original equipment.
Pricing for a set starts at $6,490, per the Callaway Cars website. The wheels also include custom lug nuts finished in either bright chrome of black chrome PVD, plus a set of carbon fiber center caps.

As for the greasy bits behind the cabin, the C8 Corvette Stingray is motivated by the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 gasoline engine, which churns out 495 horsepower at 6,450 rpm and 470 pound-feet of torque at 5,150 rpm when equipped with the optional performance exhaust system. Output is sent to the rear wheels via the eight-speed dual-clutch M1L automatic transmission, while under the skin, the C8 rides on the GM Y2 architecture. Production takes place exclusively at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky.
