2013 wheel options...I'm confused

I'm confused about the wheel options for 2013. I see some cars that have the newer, thinner spoke 20s in both midnight and polished. Then I see others with the wider 2010/2011 style 20s in polished. I thought maybe it was related to the RS package, but I've seen 2ss/rs with both wheel styles.

What determines what wheel style you get?

Some of the early 2013's had the older style 10'-12's wheels.

I've gone through this twice now... heres what I've gathered.

The 2013 started with the old rims, and mid year they added the new ones (photo below) So depending on when the car was made, it will either feature the old wheels or the new ones. Also dealers swap rims around to make sales all the time, so expect that not only are the wheels on your car not on the correct car, but that you can also just ask them to change it.

My car had the 2010 styled burshed aluminum 20's on it and I has them switch them to the 2013 in the midnight for free no issues.



Hope that helps

It is confusing. From what I heard when I purchased mine, the new style wheels were offered in 2013 in different finishes. I opted for the brushed aluminum (chrome looking). There was some sort of natural disaster at the location of the plant that made the brushed aluminum version, so that halted all orders on those wheels. I was one of those orders. After discovering this was the delay in the production of my car, they offered the 2012 brushed aluminum version instead. I opted for the new style midnight wheels pictured above. I was always going put aftermarket wheels on anyways, but the salesman suggested that I get the brushed aluminum because I could sell them easier on ebay. As a result of taking his advice and ordering the brushed aluminum wheels which were delayed, it took them six months to deliver my car. If it wasn't for Becky (a dealer on this forum), I would have never known about the delay and the she advised me to switch to the midnight wheels or I would have waited even longer. That is one of the many reasons why I love this forum (and Becky )!!!

Thanks for the info everyone. Went to the dealer and he said the same thing. Earlier builds may have the older wheel style because of the plant issues. Later builds mostly have the updated style. Mystery solved.
