Aaauughh! Z/28 Wheels on a truck

Although a Sema one-off, it is disturbing to see the Z/28 wheels on a GM concept truck. Some of the fire just went out...

Actually, I think it looks pretty good myself.

We begged for the Vette guys to share their LS7 with us so Z/28 guys can't turn around and get mad that the wheels are used elsewhere.

Don't be surprised when people start putting them on other cars. It WILL happen.

I see no problem with it. They need to try something to help the looks of the new silverado.

That's a good way of looking at it. I don't see a problem with it. I love this concept.

Ever see the original Silverado SS concept? It was really cool, then the production version was.. well, not very cool. This will probably suffer the same fate if they build it. The concept was sleek, smooth, and cool:


The production version? Tall, cladded up, and clunky.

I'll stand with the OP in the sense that the wheels do look cool on the truck, but I don't want to see my Z/28 wheels on a truck. I don't care for that particular equipment association of the purpose-built Z/28, to trucks. I don't mind sharing some parts with trucks, just not the wheels.

You actually think that concept looks better than the real SS?

i like the truck with those wheels and since i don't have a Z/28 i don't mind. i knew when i bought my ZL-1 with the black rims that since they said Camaro instead of ZL-1 like the polished rims that i would be soon to see them on other model Camaros. a year later BAM! there they were on the SS 1LE

different bolt patterns on the wheels... will never make production as you see it in the concept... if it makes production at all.

Pretty good looking ride. Sport trucks are never really big sellers though. If people want something sporty, they'll usually buy a car over a truck. Secondly, unless you live in a warm climate, why buy a truck that can't go in the snow? I'll wait to see how this unfolds. It does look sharp!

Seems like awfully pricey brakes for a truck but I'm sure some will buy this. Not for me. My truck is a truck. My ZL1 is what I drive for excitement.

Absolutely...a TON better. The real SS was always too tall and dorky looking...not to mention all the plastic cladding and fake ducts. The concept was sleek and sporty, the way an SS should be.

The brakes won't make production, but I think putting the standard brakes from the Camaro on it would make sense, at least the calipers anyway. They would either have to change the hubs to go to a 5 lug (probably wouldn't happen) or would have to go with different wheels as the standard Silverado has a 6 lug pattern. Why go the 6.2 liter truck motor though? Put the LS3 in it along with an option for the 6 speed manual.

The SS concept was pretty radical when you look at it, but this concept is much closer to production. When you break it down, all they did was put the Z28 wheels and brakes on it, which more than likely won't make it to production. The carbon fiber bits are cool but also probably wouldn't make production. They have the standard 6.2 liter truck motor in it, so no issue with production there. The lowered suspension and stabilizers are no issue for production as well as the body kit pieces (in plastic, not carbon fiber).

They could easily produce this truck and pretty quickly too. The big question is always going to be price. I would love to have this truck for my wife, she would love driving it but she would need an automatic as driving a manual is too hard on her back (back issues).
