I know about these wheels because I have some very similar SP600s on my CTS-V. I absolutely love the wheels.

But the bottom line, I would bet lots 'o money that GM will not use these wheels (from a fairly small aftermarket wheel company like CCW) on the production Z/28, which is a shame. If I ever get a Z/28, I will just pay the $700 per wheel and get these anyway.

See pic below (found on the CCW website):
I really like those wheels in chrome!!!!

With all of the coverage and spy photos being published these days, I think this is all part of GM's marketing campaign to build hype for the car. In the information age, nothing like this happens by accident...IMO.

That all being said, I'm sure enjoying the ride!

Thanks for the props and you are right they won't be the production wheels. We just do pre-production runs for GM, just to help with size and offset numbers.

Would you rather GM spend the time to engineer and perfect the car or do you want them to put it into production now, completely half-assed so that you'll run into a thousand problems down the line?

Can anybody tell us what are the two fittings with the red caps next to the exhaust, I live in Denver and I saw three black and two gray Camaros parked right next to each other at a hotel out by Denver International Airport today. The Camaros did not have all the markings or front bra as the ones in the photos but they did have the fittings with the red caps on all of them.

EDIT: Scratch that...if you look at some earlier images of the Z28 prototype...you'll see it wearing Eagle's....they were testing different tires for this car. Fantastic!! They'll pick the best!!

Goodyears are awful tires. I really hope they don't ever put that garbage on these cars again. Michelins would be great though. The Pirellis really are a good tire.

the caps on the end are for exhaust gas temperature. Helps in tuning.

I'm sure they're beating on them hard in the heat to make sure they have the tune right. ;-)


I'm not a red guy normally but I think it looks tougher in Red.

Thanks Melissa! I was hoping that they would be using the SP550's on the final production car but I guess that is not going to happen. Hopefully it will be be a nice design to go with the rest of the car. Did Troy get any pictures of the rear tire or does he remember what size they were? The largest tire listed on the Pirelli site is a 305/35-20 for this type of tire.
