SSX wheel standard

I was at Fredrick Friday at the Camaro show and Fbodfather said that the SSX wheel will be the standard wheel. Black finish only with the wheel we thought would be standard being the optional wheel.

and I was planning on a sizable "upgrade" charge for the SSX wheels. If true, less money out of my pocket for the wheels I greatly prefer

*gasp for breath*

Now, if that wheel were available in chrome or polished, that is another story.

pretty sure the 2 ZL1 running around are a fully loaded one and a base one. the fully loaded one being the one shown in chicago, and the base model one that was at camaro 5 fest 2.

I perfer the polished look myself. I just hope it isn't a lot more. Also I looked and the black SSX wheel dosen't have ZL1 stamped into it. Possibly it will in production with this being a wheel already produced before ZL1 was named.

Me too....I really dont like painted wheels....Wheels should be chrome or polished aluminum, maybe its just my age.

Well Scott told me the same thing at the show, I wasn't going to say anything in case it was meant to be announced latter. But since it's out now its a mute point now.

Psshhhh...lazy to click three buttons...

These are the wheels off the SSX Camaro Concept Car. As they appear on the ZL1, there's a stamped "Camaro" in the inner rim.

Well if we are going to get black wheels, how about at least cross drilled rotors?

Have you ever read a children's book called "If you give a mouse a cookie?"

If this is true.....
OUTFREAKINGSTANDING!! I would have been willing to pay extra for them....now if only they were available in Competition Gray. Oh well....if they only come in black, I guess that'll have to do!

That was one thing that he wasn't being cryptic about so I thought it would be safe to repeat.
I hope the Black Suburbans don't come after me.
