Thanks, great job on the photoshop. There was one picture of a polished 10 spoke at SEMA. It was just the wheel on display and not on a car. It was in a display of wheels next to the ZL1 Carbon car.

I prefer the satin black version, but it's a fantastic wheel design regardless of what finish it's in.

Don't think so. That should be the polished option instead of the 5 spoke.

You can always do it yourself, or pay someone to strip and polish them.

I'd love to see it, but in a more matte finish and not quite as shiny as a chrome finish. That should be hot IMO.

Polished wouldn't be bad I guess but I prefer the black look. It gives the car an aggressive, all-business look.

Sorry it took so long, but I found the picture. Polished 10 Spoke Rims from Chevy at the GM booth at SEMA this year. I like these better than the polished 5 Spoke rims.

Wow I'm loving that!!!! I prefer this wheel polished. I hope chevy will make this an option later. Excellent wheel....dare I say that I like it better than the current optional wheel(?). This is a gotta have!

Edit: If chevy doesn't polish this wheel I might have to do it myself (if, of course, I get the zl1).
