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?
