Like I mentioned earlier on this thread it's nice to
have options. Just looking at the two rims i'm thinking
the it depends on the paint color of the car I would
choose. The lighter colors I would probably choose
the SSX and the darker colored body paints the original
concept rims.

Add me to that list. As many have done, I have the CGM/flat black concept going with my SS. IMO these are the best looking black rollers I've seen.

The wheel design is OK, just not a fan of black wheels. If it has other finish options, I would consider them. Also would need to know the weight difference between the 2 types.

I remember the display from the sema reveal of the SSX Camaro and the small print that stated the wheels were from the Z28 wheel block, and we all know that the ZL1 was rumored to have been originally the Z28 internally from gm. The wheels biggest difference seems to be in the spoke area where the ZL1's are solid the SSX's are hollowed out to make them even lighter in weight from the already light forged beginnings which are the ZL1 wheels.

to each his own I guess... I prefer contrast... A white ZL1 with the flat black front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser would go nice with black rims ... and maybe black havoc racing stripes

Interesting.......currently the weight of the "normal" ZL1 wheels & tires are 22lbs lighter (total) than the SS wheels & tires. The SSX wheels look to me that they would be lighter than the "normal" ZL1 wheels. is it possible that you misunderstood him?

Black or Machined according to GM

They might offer the same color options for the SSX-ZL1 optional wheels...



New Michelin Cup ZP tires elevate Z06/ZR1 performance

Corvette’s greater performance for 2012 begins with the new, optional Michelin® Pilot® Sport Cup Zero Pressure tires, which are available on the two highest-performing models, the lightweight, 505-hp (377 kW) Z06 and the maximum-performance, 638-hp (476 kW) supercharged ZR1. They are competition-oriented tires, optimized for warm, dry conditions to increase cornering and handling capability.

When combined with the Corvette’s exclusive Performance Traction Management (PTM) technology – which manages torque delivery for maximum performance – the tires are expected to help set new benchmarks for Corvette performance. Engineers estimate an 8-percent gain in maximum lateral acceleration, to more than 1.1g, and improved braking distance. Testing at Virginia International Raceway has demonstrated improvement of approximately three seconds per lap.

The Cup ZP tires were developed by the same Michelin engineers who develop tires for Corvette Racing in the American Le Mans Series and are essentially street-legal versions of a racing tire. They are included in the optional Z07 performance package on the Corvette Z06 and a new PDE performance package on the ZR1. The 285/30-19 (front) and 335/25-20 (rear) tires are matched with all-new aluminum Cup-style wheels in satin black or machined finishes. They are about five pounds lighter (2.2 kg) and stronger than the 20-spoke wheel offered in 2011.

I thought the red stripes looked GREAT on the Camaro Convertible, too bad they didn't offer it on the production Camaro. I think they would set the SSX wheels off even more.

Whoever at Chevrolet is driving the ZL1 project should get a raise. The black SSX wheels are a perfect compliment. As they did with the '97 SS Z28's, I'd like to see Chevrolet allow us to purchase the SSX wheels with a set of race tires as an option where we end up with two sets of wheels and tires. Oh baby I can't wait to play with the ZL1!!
