It's not the best quality, but here's a few pics:





Ok is it just me but every ZL1 I have seen with aftermarket wheels seems like it sits higher than with the stock wheels? Racebum's car looked the same way. Does anyone else notice this? The car looks lowered with the stock wheels but aftermarket not so much.

So I told him whatever, make them however you want, just want the same 540 pattern to match the other car. I have dealt with John for about 15 years and trust him a lot. They are one-off wheels, he doesn't make them till you order them. He has quite an operation in Daytona and does first class work. He can make whatever you want....3 piece, 2 piece, 1 piece. He does lots of Viper and Corvette work. Gonna put wider tires on it, just as soon as they wear out.
Try a visit 'round Rolex 24 time...busy as a behive!

We broke 2 wheels (doing some "agricultural work"!) in practice for the 2006 24. Dropped off the CCW Classics at the shop on Friday nite (late). He delivered the repaired units to the pits, first thing Saturday AM, in lots of time to make the grid. Service with a capital S.

Same deal, after a rim-eating pothole excursion on a freeway in the Deep South during the One Lap in 2008. Air-freighted a replacement, overnite, to the next track in time for the next day's event.

John Purner is TOPS! And so are his wheels...

I will say that my photos were taken immediately after lowering the car off jack stands that it has been sitting on for a week. Once I drove it a little it settled back down. However, I do agree that it does not look as good as the stock setup.

I think they are around 23lbs for the front, 24.5 for the back. I know they were substantially lighter than my stock SS wheels, but I couldn't give a comparison to the ZL1 10-spokes. Mainly this is because I have heavy winter tires mounted on them now, so it's hard to judge. The combo is definitely heavier that the stock wheels and tires.
