ditto, ditto, and ditto.
I'd like to find a set that are black with polished face for my black SS, or possibly all polished. All black is too much for my black car, IMO.

As soon as I sw the SSX concept I stopped looking for wheels and started waiting for GM to put them into production. The wait is almost over, now they need to hit the streets!

This just doesn't make sense. Take the lighter-than-stock SSX wheels and make them standard, so that people pay more to get heavier wheels and slow down the zl1? Yeah. I'm preeeety sure these are gonna be on the zl1... with a price.

Umm I will most likely get flamed for these opinions so here
goes my thoughts.

1) No official statement has been made as to a weight
difference between the two rims. I believe Scott informed
me at the Frederick National Camaro event that they
weighed the same. If I mis heard him then I would
be first to apologize to everyone here, that I gave misinformation.

2) If indeed the SSX rims do in fact wiegh less then the polish
ones, then this would help to reduce the stock ZL1's
weight. I would imagine that they have a target weight
for the finished product, which could also help to avoid the
GGT.

3) Perhaps the mostly is that the SSX rims costs less to
produce then the polish rims. Thus helping to lower
MSRP on the stock version of the Zl1. I'm sure that GM
is hoping to keep this car as affordable as possible

4). Lastly GM does read these threads concerning the ZL1, and
perhaps they felt from the feedback here that the SSX rims would be the most popular of the two.

I imagine in the coming months we maybe given some
additional insight from GM concerning the rims and thier
choice for using the SSX rims for stock.

Chrome wheels weigh more but people are still willing to pay more to buy them, even on cars designed for all out performance like the Z06 & ZR1.

I've said it before, but an all-out, take no prisoners car such as the ZL1 (and the Z06 & ZR1 for that matter) should have an "all business" look to it and the SSX wheels fit the bill perfectly. Flash not required.......in fact, flash would look out of place in my opinion.

I agree. I was just scared that these ZL1 wheels would be something you'd have to pay for extra. I love these wheels.

Then you and I can consider ourselves lucky. However, I'd consider myself VERY lucky if they're available in Comp Gray

I started to post this as a separate thread but opted against it. Chevrolet website states 305/35R20 tires on 11" wheels (for the rear). When I did some research on this tire it states that they can be mounted to a wheel up to 12" width. So, here is my question about the stock ZL1 wheels/tires - Wouldnt it be better to get the standard 11" wheel then replace it with a 12" wheel of your liking since the tire supposedly fits and it gives you another inch of rubber to the road? What is your opinion?

Agree, black just isn't my style either. Need something to break up the black/black my wife and I anticipate ordering.

From a selling standpoint, I would not offer black wheels as standard, because I think most people like polished, chrome rims. However, I am a fan of the ssx wheels!

Simply explaination they changed thier minds between the time of the camaro fest and the camaro nationals. I believe the reason being is the SSX rims cost less to make then the polished rims.

It just occured to me, it may also be a continuity thing. The ZR1 and Z06/Z07 come with black wheels standard, and the other finishes are upgrades (the GT500 PP also comes with Charcoal wheels). Just a random thought that made sense, no clue if there is any validity to it.

Thanks for information

Typical forum. One post out of thirty gives usable info and 29 of 30 give useless opinions and babblespeak. I thank the guy that tells us of the new black wheels and the guy that provided the picture. No, I won't tell you if I like them in black or not. Why would you care? What is important is finding out what is available standard and optional here. Thnx again for that!!! Now to search this forum to see what the latest is on timing/availability, etc. Oh, okay --- just one opinion --- I hope the new eight speed tranny GM is developing becomes ZL1 available soon.
