I'm surprised more people don't have aftermarket wheels.

theres nothing to hate about the ZL1s wheels, so im not surprized there arent more people who swapped wheels.

I want to see some true forged wheels on a ZL1 first before I make up my mind though

He does lots of Viper and Corvette work. Gonna put wider tires on it, just as soon as they wear out.
FYI: The inner fenders are the same on on a SS, ZL1 or 1LE. It doesn't matter because your 12's fit.

In my taste, the black wheels are some of the best factory wheels to come out on any car. I don't know how many compliments I have received just on the wheels on my car. At least everyone in my area loves the black on orange combo. In all reality, with a car with this exclusivity in this price range, I am betting that a higher percentage of people are keeping it stock.

normally I replace stock wheels because
A. they look horrible
B. they are boat anchor heavy
C. higher procudtion car so you see that wheel everywhere.

A. on this car I like the 10 spokes

B. they are factory forged so they are not too heavy even though there are lighter wheels out there.

C. I have the only one I have seen in the area so far.

to be honest 50% of the people think my car is just an SS I modified so they think the wheels are aftermarket ha ha. I figured by now I would have seen another one around and maybe that would make me want to get different rims but not yet.

I love my stock black wheels on my orange ZL1. Those wheels make the car look mean so I was told.

Stock rims run about 1k per wheel, no tire either. After market is cheaper and maybe better

They're $649.

I've had my eyes on some iforged equip v3s concave series in a 11 front 12 rear. Matte black center with a carbon lip.

I have my winter tires mounted on TSW Nurburgrings and I just put them on this week. They look good, but I still think the stock wheels look better.

It's not the best quality, but here's a few pics:

Ok is it just me but every ZL1 I have seen with aftermarket wheels seems like it sits higher than with the stock wheels? Racebum's car looked the same way. Does anyone else notice this? The car looks lowered with the stock wheels but aftermarket not so much.

Try a visit 'round Rolex 24 time...busy as a behive!

We broke 2 wheels (doing some "agricultural work"!) in practice for the 2006 24. Dropped off the CCW Classics at the shop on Friday nite (late). He delivered the repaired units to the pits, first thing Saturday AM, in lots of time to make the grid. Service with a capital S.

Same deal, after a rim-eating pothole excursion on a freeway in the Deep South during the One Lap in 2008. Air-freighted a replacement, overnite, to the next track in time for the next day's event.

John Purner is TOPS! And so are his wheels...
