Carbon Concept Wheels - Powdercoated

Here are some pics of the wheels I had powdercoated and installed today. They are the 5-spoke Bright ZL1 optional wheels with all the dull silver powdercoated gloss black in the style of the Carbon Concept wheels.

These were done by Joe at CHICAGO WHEEL and I must say they FAR exceeded my expectations for quality and detail. The polished aluminum sections are almost chrome-like. I LOVE THEM!!!

(the last pic is a wheel lock pic for Old Jedi)

Kinda curious how they look in motion. I bet it's a cool effect.

Nice work!

Congrats.

I really like those! If those were available from the factory, it might have made my decision a lot harder! Great job!

magnificent! I just love the 'personal touches' that many of our enthusiasts add to their new Camaros. (...other than the 28 inch wheels.......:( )

your powder coating the wheels gives your new ZL1 a GREAT look!

On behalf of everyone at "Team Camaro" - we hope this is the best car you've ever owned! Thanks for choosing a ZL1!

I'm doing this same thing to my wheels right now the only difference with mine is that I'll have the center and lug nuts in black and the zl on the wheel pinstriped in red and the 1 completely in red to match the rest of my car. I also did the matte black spoiler, bezels, and gills on the side. I will post picks on Tuesday when I get my car back on Tuesday. I saw it two days ago and must say that they matte black spoiler for those of you that have matte insert is a must have.

Thanks everyone! (wow, my first reply from Fbodfather!)

I LOVE THESE WHEELS and thank the Chevy Concept team for the original design that I fell in love with and simply just had to have!

I have my very first C5G club cruise tomorrow and the Demon looks tip-top! I am the first ZL1 in the club and I am looking forward to all the attention!

I will bring a cam and take pics and post!
