Wheels on the Z/28

Anyone know what type of wheel is on the Z28? Might be too early to know, but thought I'd give it a shot. It's a nice lookin' wheel.

..as per GM media.....
"The Camaro Z/28 features 19-inch diameter wheels and tires, which reduce unsprung weight by 42 pounds (19 kilograms) per car compared to the 20-inch wheels standard on Camaro SS and ZL1. In addition, the smaller diameter wheels lower the center of gravity by 33 millimeters, further improving handling.
At all four corners, the lightweight, forged aluminum wheels are wrapped in massive 305/30ZR19 tires. This is the first production application of ultra-high performance Pirelli PZero Trofeo R tires, and believed to be the widest front tire on any production car.

Shhhhhh....

I have interior shots on my Nikon camera from when I got to ride in her. Will post them Sunday if I don't get a chance before.

I can tell you though - the LS7, in a 3600 lb Camaro, has some kick to it

Uhhhh?!?!?!?!?

If that's the weight, it has a power to weigh ratio of 7.12, which is less than the ZL1.

They will offer replicas that arent as light most likely, and should be somewhat more affordable.

They might even offer these in 18's or 20. Hopefully.

Definitively looks like BBS FI. I bet they are made by BBS. Just take a look at the pic. Also BBS it is known to make wheels for automotive manufacturers

What numbers are you basing that off of though? The Z/28 numbers haven't been officially released...

Don't forget, the steering on the Z/28 has a different calibration than the ZL1. Al mentions that in his interview. The last thing you would want to do it put those wheels/tires on (which I love as well) and have your steering go odd in some way.

3600 lbs, probably 505 HP means around 7.12 lbs/HP.

BBS is the OEM supplier for the Lexus IS-F forged 19" wheels, among others. As an accessory, those BBS wheels with Lexus center caps can be purchased from Lexus dealers for le$$ money than similar-sized BBS wheels sold by Tire Rack.

Just because they're a "manufactuer's wheel" doesn't necessarily mean they have to be exorbitantly priced.

As to "upgrading" a ZL1 , or any other model/vehicle, with lighter wheels and tires will NOT have a negative effect on vehicle components or dynamics, in and of themselves. Supposing, of course, your upgraded components are of suitable quality. Which, in this case, GM's quality standards will ensure.

Talking about wheels , how come one lower the center of gravity 33mm , just by switching from 20" to 19 "
In my mind it should be by 1/2" only
