Yikes, someone stole the wheels off this C8 Corvette

© Car and Driver The poor thing is now resting on cinderblocks on a street in Detroit.

  • Someone sent us a photo of this C8 Corvette with its wheels and tires stolen.
  • The car was parked on the street in Detroit, Michigan, in a neighborhood called the West Village.
  • We assume this is a GM-owned car, as the C8 isn’t on sale yet at Chevy dealerships.

Looking for a set of Corvette C8 wheels and tires at a steep discount? Check Craigslist in Detroit, because we can verify that there’s a set missing from this black 2020 Chevy Corvette C8 that someone spotted on the street in the West Village. The poor mid-engined Corvette is now sitting on cinderblocks with its rear end resting on the ground, so it’s likely that the criminals inflicted some damage in the process of swiping the wheels.

Wheel thefts are common enough, especially for high-end vehicles with expensive rims. We had a set of wheels and tires stolen off a Ford Fusion test car in 2014. After all, a set of new Corvette tires—even a set of all-seasons like on this car, which appears to be a non-Z51—costs around $1000 alone, and the wheels are likely worth thousands more on top of that.

Oh, and if you’re thinking of buying a Corvette C8 yourself, let this be a lesson to opt for the wheel locks that cost $90 from Chevrolet. You can even get black-painted wheel locks for an extra $30 on top of that. Trust us, it’s worth it.
