I am pretty excited! Do those rear wheel wells look wider to anyone besides me? I don't really care for the wheels, LOVIN the car though.

They are CCW SP550s. They are a one-piece forged aluminum wheel. Very light, and pretty strong. The company that makes them is CCW and they are very reputable and have some of the best customer service I have ever experienced.

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.

They might, if the Z28 were a limited production run. But with GM in the financial shape it's in right now, smart money says they'll try to sell as many as they can.

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!
