The 2017 Corvette Grand Sport will start at $66,445 for coupe models and $70,445 for convertibles when the new trim goes on sale this fall. These "starting prices" are always a little deceiving. With options like the Z07 package which includes carbon ceramic brakes, five custom wheel choices and available carbon fiber ground effects prices can quickly climb. Still, $70K for a track-ready Corvette is bargain. The Grand Sport uses the LT1 V8 with 460 hp. For more details on the newest Corvette Trim for 2017, please see our prior story.

      hello everyone im a long  time lurker, ive been trying to find answer but cant find a clear one or even remotely, the question is surely beaten to death but here we go.
       
      I have a 2017 silverado LT, i already have 285r70/17 M/T im looking to buy newer rims the one i like have a 10 mm offset, im looking for a more aggressive stance i was wondering if i put 1.5 inchs spacer or 1.75" will the whole thing rub everywhere i have a 3 inchs level kit in front and 1 inch in back.
       
      Also would it be preferable to have an negative offset wheel instead of spacers ?

      Hello, I have tried called my local dealerships parts department and cannot seem to get an answers so I thought I might have better luck here. I have a 2017 silverado but I think the tail lights on the 2018 look way better. will the 2018 tail lights swap directly with the 2017?
       
      any help is appreciated

      How’s it going,
       
      Was wondering if anyone wanted a quick guide on installing cab/clearance lights.
       
      thought they look nice.
       
      have them wired up so that they only run when your headlights are on.

      Alright so I have this idea and I don't know if its possible or not. Camaro's have an option where you can have illuminated door panels, I would like to do something similar in 2017 silverado. I have already added interior door piping that matches the exterior color of the truck. I would like to take that same concept but use EL wire instead of the silver piping to create illuminated door panels. I dont want to do too much but I think it would add a little more to the interior and be different. 
       
      My thoughts are to get some EL wire with the welting attached to it and place it where the current piping is. But the part I am on the fence about would be what to wire it to. These doors have the lights in the handles that dim with the main dimmer for all of the dash. I was wondering if it could be wired into the circuit that way it would be the same brightness as all the other illumination on the dash. But if you have ever messed with EL wire before, it runs of AC current. You need a 12v driver for them to operate off of a 12v system.
       
      Would it be better to run 1 inverter that would power all 4 doors and then have to run the wire through the whole cab or purchase 4 smaller inverters and place them in behind the door panels. If I was to only use 1 inverter I could possibly connect it to the main dimmer switch instead of the doors circuit. But these lights should not pull alot of current so I'm unsure which would be the best way.
       
       
      In these picture on my door panel the silver line coming from where the window switch is, is the piping. Thats where the EL wire would go. If i used 1 driver i would need to use a 4 way splitter to go to each door. I have attched a picture of multiple drivers, these things come in all different sizes. The driver i would use if I did 4 different inverters is used to power up to 2 meters of wire. The amount in would be powering would be way shorter then that and the inverter is about 1 inch by 2 inch, so very small. The 1 big inverter option is pretty good size and also is rated to power up to 15 meters.
       
      This should be relatively cheap
       
      4 drivers = $28
      EL wire= $15
      connectors= $15
      so about $60
       
      I believe I have found a color that matches the chevy color, the aqua color is pretty dang close if not identical. For the sierra guys, they make red as well. 
       
      You would need connectors so you can cut the EL wire to length for the door, It is pretty easy to wire the connector to the EL wire. Most use a 2 pin JST wire connection and you can get a kit with 10 connectors and heat shrink for like $10. I am just wondering if anybody has thought of this or done this and how. If you have any experience with EL wire please chime in.
