From the Chevrolet ZL1 page,,,,, Only the 5 spoke design list being 11lbs lighter than the SS model.


WHEEL OPTIONS:

ZL1 offers two 20-inch wheel options, both tested and engineered to the highest standards.

The first wheel option is a 10-spoke design
Standard 10-spoke wheel is black with a low-gloss clear coat, forged alum and has the CAMARO logo.

The other wheel option is a 5-spoke design:
Forged Aluminum 5-spoke 20-inch wheels (20" x 10" front / 20" x 11" rear)
Polished face with a high-gloss clearcoat.
These wheels are 11 lbs lighter than the current 2SS model wheels.

I believe when it says "these wheels" it's referring to both sets.

The black wheels 'look' lighter to me. Both are forged and it has been said they weigh the 'same'. I'm sure they aren't exactly the same but probably very close. It will be interesting to get actual weights once somebody gets the wheels on a scale.
