Thanks for the info.
It does seem that most buyers want the shinier wheels.
I don't see many Corvettes with Competition Grey wheels on the lots.
My '84 Z28 was silver with charcoal stripes and rocker panels and it had graphite wheels with machine faced edges. I loved it, but when the dealer bought the car back from me for $10,500 they ended up selling it for $8990. A hard sell in 1985 and I guess a hard sell in 2012 for a lot of people.

There's a lot of information to absorb. ZL1 is a lot of car.

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

Sounds like a easy naming scheme to me. ZL1 - Black 10 spoke, Polished 5 spoke. (Get away from the SSX terminology.)

I'm thinking of getting rid of the black wheels when my ZL1 arrives and putting on some Vossen 20-inch rims on it. How much do you think a brand-new set of the rims could go for??

.

Both of the available wheel setups have the same weight as I recall. They are both of the same quality I deduct.

The price difference between the polished five spoke and the black ten spoke should only be the machining which the five spoke requires.

My guess is that the price difference will be around $500.00 for the set.



BTW, for me: 5 spoke, black inside and polished outside with dark neon blue accenting instead of the red. Much like this.

I wouldn't take the black wheels if GM paid me to order the car with them. Eventhough I like the look of CGM with black wheels, mine will have the polished wheels...I'm all about show, not go! (kidding)

Scott told me and at least one other person at the Frederick fairgrounds
camaro show that the Black rims would be standard. He also hinted as to
the reason why it was chosen, which is that they are less expensive to
manufacture. If your think about it you choose the less exp rim as the
standard rim to keep the price down and compete as much as possible
with the mustang's MSRP. I also thought he hinted (but could be wronge)
that the wieghts of the two rims were very close. Which if you think
about would keep the specs closer togather for testing and production
of the ZL1
Which also means if I go with the polished rims its going to possible cost
me an extra 2K or 3k. I'm trying to figure out the color I want as far as the paint, and from that decision make my rim choice. I find depending on
the color of the paint I like one rim over the other. Oredring date is not
to far from now after waiting since hearing the ZL1's introduction earlier
this year.

Not for anything...but I'd be surprised if they cost that much more. These people will fight over pennies to keep the MSRP of the vehicle down...if the black wheels were just a few hundred dollars cheaper, that'd be reason enough.

Doesn't it feel like this year's flown by since Feb, in Chicago that this car was unveiled?

MSRP for 20" Staggered is around $2500, but the vendors here will offer some great dealer pricing.

When I ordered mine, there wasn't a price difference.

I've got an IOM coming to life with the black 10 spokes, CF hood w/stripe, Sunroof etc.....

If you are replacing the rims after you get the car, I think you will have an easier time getting rid of the brushed vs black based on sheer numbers, but I don't think anyone will have a hard time unloading them for $1000-1500 with the tires.
