Exclamation Black wheels or powder coat silver ones???

I need some Help follow ZL1 owners!!!

Should I get the stock 10 spoke black wheels or powder coat the silver ones black? I own a black M6 ZL1. I have till saturday to decide which ones I want. I like the way the black stock 10 spoke wheels look, but then again the silver one look great powder coated black with the ZL in silver and 1 in red.

I would really appreciate people putting up pictures of the wheels on the thread! Ive searched some previous threads about this and the pictures were not that great. But anyway I LOVE my new ZL1!!! The break-in period is gonna be tough tho!

The 8 spoke. Looks much better when the wheel is open and you are able to see the calipers. Looks much more sinister IMO.

my .02 is is buy the one you like the look of better and finish how you want.

I wanted black wheel and happened to like 10 spoke wheels better as well so it was easy for me. I have though about finishing the inside lip in gray or something to give a little contrast but won't do that till I add HP.

If you prefere the 5 spoke to the 10 get them. some people liked the carbon concept wheel which was teh 5 spoked finished black and polished.

wheels and color things like that are so subjective from person to person just go with what you think looks best.

I think depending on color you could chome the 10 spokes and it would look good.

The black factory standard ZL1 wheels are 10 spokes not 8.

I would get the ZL1 5 spoke wheels black powder coated or black chromed.

ha I edited my original post right before you posted that!

But I was wondering if anyone had any pictures of the 5 spoked wheels in black?

The younger crowd says go black 10 spoke and the older crowd is saying get silver then powder coat them if you want to.

Thanks for the posts!

Lol it does seem that way. I have the 5 spokes and get compliments on them all the time. I'm going to order the black wheels and get them powdercoated titanium which from what I've seen is a metallic dark gray look. I personally like the 5 spokes better because they look more aggressive in person and plan on keeping them. I'll probably flip flop wheels from time to time.

I wanted the polished wheels, but settled for the black 10 spoke which I'm glad because of the sinister look and how well they hide the brake dust.

Black looks way better imo. Polished just makes the car look like more of an SS.

Exactly, the polished blend in and look like all the other SS's out there. Those 10 spokers stand out and makes people look twice. Most of the compliments I get from people are in regards to the rims.

5 spoke looks easier to clean...10 spokes makes any Camaro look racy. I like both of them.

The 10 spokes! I get people asking all the time if they came with the car since they look aftermarket. They can't believe GM would put such an awesome wheel on a car as a stock component.

Question, you said you owned a black one, shouldn't you have already made your decision? Personally I like the design of the polished, but am thinking of getting them Black Chromed.

I'm inquiring about them now. It's hard to find anyone to powdercoat wheels in my area.
