Poll: Which wheel do you like more?

LS7 wheel from 2 years ago or the new ZL1 wheel. I like them both but LS7 wheel is the bomb for me.

LS7 wheel:




ZL1 wheel:

ZL1 for sure. The differing textures give it a hi-tech look.

ZL-1 Much more texture, better overall design IMO.

I kinda' prefer the more trim look of the LS7 wheel, and if they would cast (or forge ) ZL1 into it like the ZL1 wheel I'd be more interested, but, I've already fallen for the ZL1 wheel, so that's what I'm voting. It'd be cool to have LS7 wheels as an option though!!!

LS7 wheel for sure. It has a leaner more muscular look to me.

I really don't like either, but between the two the ZL1.

Although I voted for the LS7 wheels because I like the brushed finish better and they seem just as detailed but less bulky looking that the ZL1 wheels.

See how you are

Being the ZL1 wheels are forged, they're lighter than comparable cast wheels, however, since I don't know if the Z06 wheels are forged, I can't comment. Even if they were cast, because the Z06 wheels look less bulky, I think they'd be a little lighter. Regardless - I'd be willing to be the forged ZL1 wheels are stronger.

I still like them, too. That would have been a nice addition to the poll options.

Thanks for pointing out the bulky-look. I couldn't quite place it, but after you mentioned it, you're totally right
