Z28 wheels

I've seen a number of ZL1 owners saying they wanted a set of the Z28 wheels on their car. I think the wheels look awesome and the weight savings is a definite plus. However, I think the wheels could look funny on a ZL1, because when I saw a closeup of the wheels, it looks like they say "Z28" on them, much like the silver ZL1 wheels say "ZL1" and the blacks ones say "Camaro".

I wanted a set until I saw that. You are correct they do say Z28 and they are also only 19" rims, oh well.

Tires cost a shit load for 19"s. Same with 21"s

Yup, they are 19s....they're EXCEPTIONALLY light-weight...which means $$$$....and they say "Z/28". They'd fit....the Carbon Ceramic brakes use similar front calipers as the ZL1...but they're definitely different, and more expensive.

Are they the same calipers that are on the new Cadillacs?

I believe they're 6-piston...but that's about it. The hardware is all very similar to what's used on the Carbon Brakes on Corvettes.

A lot more expensive.

Also, 19" tires aren't that expensive anymore. Still over priced. But they're coming down.

if they are 42lbs lighter I could give a crap if they say Z28 on them. Pilot SS are cheaper for 19's than they are 20's.

Now who knows they may be spendy but I am sure I could get a decent chunck of change for the ZL1 wheels.

people discount undsrung wieght. the ligher rotors and lighter well are some of that 3 seconds a lap.

Now if the 42 lbs is bs then then I don't know what I think.

I agree, I am trying to figure out if I plan on putting my 10 spokes up for sale after this year also.

Really depends on $, I am not a fan of the design, might look better polished, chromed, painetd, etc.

Also, is most of the weight loss in the wheel or the tire, or both. It is a new tire also

I would really like to have the wheels/rims. I like the way they look and the less weight thing is a bonus. 19's look pretty good on the car even better with a drop of an 1''or so IMO. I have been hunting for a set in the aftermarket but nothing is really close.

sorry i know this is a huge bump but which black wheels say camaro on them? the 18" ugly ones? or are you talking about the 20" wheels... i looked for an image of what you're talking about. my wheels are 20" black and I don't see the word camaro on it anywhere

The black 10 spoke 20" wheels that come on the ZL1 and 1LE have the word Camaro embedded on the inside lip.
