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.

Trust me, I have called everyone....Not in stock, special order only and GM won't even let me buy one cause I can still drive it, guess that's why they wanted proof of damage. Jim Glover Tulsa and Lawton tried to order some...no luck.

GM also said they are switching manufactures? So after market maybe the way to go.

There are 2 companies in the wheels section doing the 10 spoke wheels for under 2K and one said the wheels will take factory center caps. From the pics I've seen they look pretty good.

I prefer to keep my ZL1 looking like a ZL1, hence the reason for no aftermarket wheels.

Seriously doubt I'll ever put aftermarket wheels on this car. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the factory wheels. They look damn good and seem to be well made. And there's likely fewer Camaros around here running these wheels than aftermarkets. Most of the time, there are only a handful of aftermarket wheels that people go with, so they start to get old after a while. With the price and availability of the factory wheels, I doubt there will be many other Camaros with them. Plus, others buy aftermarket wheels to try to accomplish the look that the factory ZL1 already has.

The only thing I considered doing with the wheels is having them chromed.

with the silver wheel full polish or chrome would look sweet IMO. maye even accent the ZL1 in the wheel.

I am thinking about having the inner ring around the wheel of my 10 spokes shot in ashen gray.

I like the stock wheels and am not going to change them but both could use a little delta from stock IMO.

I am considering getting some SS-like wheels to put winter tires on . . . I'm trying to figure out what will fit and how much it will cost.

this is true.. and the zl1 looks great...but all cars can always be improved
and their are better looking wheels than the factory zl1 wheels..but for a factory wheel they look great thats why not many need to change them..but their are always the guys that doesnt want to look like every other zl1..
