Wow, I haven't looked that far ahead.

That's a good idea! If I keep the stock black wheels, I'm definitely getting them pinstriped in red. That's if I can't find any forged (chrome or polished) wheels worthy of going on the ZL1...

Go for it!! That way I can tell if it'll look okay.

Oh, and I'm going to give it a hairline black outline to separate the letters from the background paint, and then clear over it all....steal that idea, too, please.

While I doubt that the ZL1's massive torque will sheer the lightweight 10 spokes, the optional 5 spokes "look" stronger with a bit more meat. Seems like there are two camps with differing opinions on aesthetics. No matter... it's all good!

If I had ordered a BLACK ZL1... I would have gone ALL BLACK, wheels too. Black L(. (. )KS great for about two blocks & then dust ruins the effect. I opted for Victory Red with the 5 spokes & exposed weave CF. I haven't had a RED car for a long time & it's EZ to match if something ugly were to transpire.

If you order the optional wheels, do you get the standards wheels as well?

That's a good question... I know that if you buy the 21" wheels, you are also supposed to get whatever wheels came with the car, so...

That is because you are paying $4800.00 for the wheels and tires. Not $470.00 for the optional 5 spoke polished wheels.

By default, the insert comes painted flat black. The only option at this time is to order the exposed carbon fiber insert. To have it painted like the rest of the car would be something you get done on your own (i.e. not from GM).
