I would trade you my silver for your black!!! Mine is also a 2013 and they are in perfect condition. I want black and plan to powder coat mine if I have to.

Jet Hot has a finsh that would give you the look that you want. I have been thinking about doing mine in Black Chrome but have been hoping to see a set first.

I don't want 5 spoke, like I said, the wheel design itself is cool, I just prefer a polished aluminum look. Black chrome might be cool to. The flat black is just for the younger crowed I guess, call me old school, or just old fart.lol

Here is a ZL1 wheel in Gunmetal Grey which was done on the shop car from Livernois. Hope this helps.

Check out the Pace Car for the Daytona Nationwide 300 Race next weekend. It is a Blue ZL1 with the ten spoke wheels polished. You may be able to get them from your local dealership. Cause they are just like the black ones have Camaro on the lip and the same center cap.

We have decided to powder coat the wife's 5 spoke wheels to black, and I am looking to probably do the same for my 10 spoke black wheels. The factory finish on the 10 spoke black wheels are pathetic. Its the only thing I think Chevy failed on with this car. Since my car is black on black, the only choice i really have is "black"... LOL. Just looking to do something that the average viewer will notice is not factory.

Hi, I should get my painted 10 spokes on Friday, but I get some first pics about it, one about the wheel alone and another one front of the Camaro owned by a friend of mine, just for fun.

Black Chrome /PVD would look sexy as hell on this style wheel.

Yes you're right, it will look very similar as Touring model, except that on this car, rims are locally polished on some faces.
