Nope. But when people mention it enough it happens. You never know, could be a future option for future releases.

Didn't realize the Hot Wheels edition had it or the other model. Becky had it done to her rims that's what came to mind.

I like the ssx wheels polished. I hope we can see some surface options with it. I would like to see more polished relief areas in both wheels and a little less black paint though.

...I like the HW wheels and hood, looks cool, perhaps for a Z28??? (Ooops, sorry, that's OT) The wheels are sharp though...

When I was at Carlisle a few weeks ago for the GM-Nationals,there was a guy there that had the stock Black SSX wheels chromed on his Ashen Gray ZL1,they looked sharp,the only thing was that the inside of them was filthy with brake dust and road grime

Is it possible to do the Black SSX wheels and outline the spokes only? Do the 5 sets of two spokes together? Bring to the rim and blend there or tie that together?

I've been visualizing some red highlights or piping on the black SSX standard ZL1 wheels. Also, perhaps a silver center cap with red bowtie, or something similar to break up the solid black form in some fashion. Of course the red would be more color specific to match and go with the victory red paint.

Can it be "Torch Red" or "Guards Red?" Does it have to be "Victory Red? All the time Victory Red? Of course it does, Thats the Coolest color on the planet. My ZL1 will be SIM but thats only because I need to keep it on the down low. LOL Try to maintain that low key presence when I'm doing a buck fifty.. But god knows I love that red!!

I added SSX wheels with polished spokes only to my original post. Take a look.

BTW, I'm no photoshop expert so I'm doing these in low res and just quick hackjobs so don't expect too much if I try to respond to some requests.

Thats exactly what I envisioned. Looks the best of the black IMO. Thank you for the work
