I would like to see what they look like as well, but I am not sure I am willing to let anyone else drive it, so it is a real dilemma

There have been a number of videos made now with the ZL1 on the track. I would imagine some would have some clips of the black rims in motion.

Flat black wheels don't show up really well but glossy black will because they reflect light still. Machined face is the best of both worlds, stealth and yet still have a touch of flash. I had ZR1 gloss black repro wheels on my C6 but I also had bright blue calipers to make them pop.

Drake,
Check out the Road and Track GTR vs ZL1 post for a shot of the black wheels in motion.

I think they look pretty cool, but then my order will include them so I may be prejudiced toward them.

Don't tell him that... Drake seems like the type that might actually try that.

I hate black wheels. Everyone runs them because,well,its what they think everyone else likes and also to be different but,if everyone runs them how different can you be? In the end its "to each their own".

I love black wheels. I think depending on what color car they are on, and the fitment, they can look amazing in a subtle way.

I find that black wheels draw in people who care about wheels and cars. They want to see what the details of the wheels are. They are not flashy. It just depends on your perspective. They also don't look dirty as quickly. I had white wheels and they always looked dusted with brake dust. It was a bitch keeping those looking clean all of the time
