Is it weird to want this Chevy wheel on my T-Bird?

I'm in love with the new Corvette ZR1 wheels. Would it be weird or blasphemous to want these for my Thunderbird?

If your exhaust tip is larger than your cylinder bore, then you are a Ricer.

19x8.5 and 19x10 with 245/285 rubber on a Bird would be HOT. Damn, wish we could get that wheel! I'd buy a set right now.

^agreed...

...but theres a problem, the corvette has a 4.75x5 bolt pattern, so not even a hub swap will let those fit.
