I don't expect the polished wheels to be anywhere near that price. I expect them to be a $500 to $1000 option, considering the Z06 machined cup style wheels are a $995 option.

Now that would be workable. I was just looking at the Camaro website and the price of optional wheels on the std models. That's a relief to know because the polished make it POP.

MUCH!!

Combined with the tires, the polished wheels are said to be 22lbs lighter (total) than the SS wheel/tire setup...The black ten-spoke wheels look even lighter than that!

Those 21" wheels are.....mmm...."expensive"?

More than many sets of aftermarket wheels...I'm surprised so many have chosen to check that box from the factory

Looks good, I do wish they had put cross drilled rotors on the ZL1 though.

Oh, they discussed it allright! Probably for a whole 15 minutes.......

Besides, they have to leave something for the 2013 Models now don't they?

Decisions decisions. The polished wheels and Ashen Grey combo sharpens the look.

Here is another angle showing just the polished spear points/flat facets along the rim.

No, it is a picture I took of the Barrett-Jackson ZL1 that was in Las Vegas. It is the Chicago, New York, Dallas red show car with a Carbon Flash wrap done just for the auction. I took a 100 pictures of that car while I had a chance to see a ZL1 in person.

That black wheel and caliper combo is sexy! I like the shape of the silver wheel better with the zL1 engraving (nice touch), but it would look so much fully polished or chromed. I don't think you can go wrong with either option. Speaking of which, I wonder if there will be options for caliper colors? Red, yellow, or blue for contrast would be awesome.

Anyone else notice the 2-piece performace rotors in the first pic? Who cares if they're not slotted or drilled.
