Would You Get the Optional Black Wheels if......

They were a dealer accessory and you had to pay $4-5000 for them and you would also NOT get the wheels that originally came on the car from the factory?
I know I wouldn't.
I hope they are a factory installed option.

Mods: please put this in the ZL1 section. thanks.

B4z. The black wheels are Standard on the ZL1.

No longer are they "the SSX wheels"....they're the ZL1's wheels.

With a dark color paint job they take on a whole new life IMHO. I was pretty high on the cut, flutted 5 spoke polished wheels originaly, and then with after thought only if they came in a powder coated midnight finish option. But, with the advent of the CGM and IBM color shots shown recently, it's almost a foregone conclusion for me on these wheels. Unless of course they offer as an option the 5 spoke ZL1 etched wheels in a powder coated midnight black!

Hells yes. If it is available I will definitely be placing an order. It looks nasty.

I really think that NOT that many people will be rocking the black wheels on their ZL1s. I feel as if the dealers will most likely order them WITH the polished wheels to appeal to the regular consumer. Just like some gt500s sitting on the showrooms have the optional SVT package with the different rims and such.

I like the SSX wheels the best. But it depends on the price and if I get to keep the chrome ones or not too. But I do it for $2,500 with the existing wheels. But if it is $5,000 and no existing wheels; I have to think good and hard because you have to price in the standard wheels into the price since they are taken from you and replace with the SSX wheels. So if the default wheels I think might be price at $2,000 and you are charged an extra $5,000 for the SSX wheels; the total cost of the SSX wheels are $7,000.00!

"SSX wheels" are standard. A more appropriate name for them would now be the "ZL1 wheels".

Where are you getting this info from? Do you have connections to GM or something?

It's been stated earlier in the summer, and it's been pretty common knowledge since then. I think Oshawa's Open House was when they said it.

Have you noticed that nearly all ZL1s shown since then have been wearing the ten-spokes shown for the first time at the Camaro5Fest?
