LS7 Wheels??

I have a friend telling me those are the Polished Wheels on the LS7, however I thought Chevy just said they were Custom Wheels?

Can anyone confirm or deny this? I know they are not the standard SS wheels, nor are they the Midnight Silver.

I agree, they are much nicer than the optional 21" wheels that are offered IMO.

SEMA LS7 Wheel Clone available.

A good substitute, looks very similar to the LS7 wheels. Thought you all may want to know.
