Who writes this stuff? Performance and 21" wheels and tires? All about performance how? With it's "pretty package" on a plain 2(SS|LT) model? Cosmetic mods package isn't about performance it's about appearance.


A $6,000 appearance package with advertised 21" wheels. Correct me if I'm wrong, but "performance" wheels are usually 17"-19", right? That whole "unsprung mass" thing...yes, low profile tires are good, but a wheel isn't really a "performance" wheel unless it's optimized for weight savings, i.e. aircraft quality forged aluminum, modular designs. 21" seems like it's all about appearance and has nothing to do with performance, unless it's a lightweight wheel (unlikely).
