21" Wheel Package Price

Just got back from dealer to order my 2SS. After I convinced him that prices were indeed available, (He had to go to his laptop before he would believe me, but that's typical of some of these info-deficit dealers).

Anyway, he saw the cost of the 21" tires and wheels and said they were about $4,500! Um, I think 20" will be good enough for me!

21" is only 5% bigger than 20". Regardless of price, how much of a difference does that really make?

Seems outrageous to me, but I didn't discuss it any further as I had already decided on the stock 20's.

yeah i dont think so, probably around 1k dollar option. as a option from the manufacturer they save and you save because you dont have to pay for a second set of wheels like you do when you buy aftermarket.

That is sounds correct to me but like headpunter said they need to subtract your stock wheel price. I would think that the 20's are not cheap either.

As an example, I did ask him about the Hurst shifter option. He said he "thinks" that since this option is replacing the original factory shifter, and it is dealer installed, I would be paying for the Hurst shifter outright, they would install it and give me the original shifter. It works out to be more expensive since you are effectively "buying" two shifters, not like when you are adding something, like the ground effects.

I would imagine that's how the wheels would work too. You are paying the full cost of the 21" wheels and will have the original wheels too after they are removed. There is no paying the difference like a factory installed option would be.

At Indy they said you will get some kind of a credit for the stock wheels on the wheel upgrade. But it is probably not worked out yet.

I ordered my car today - Actually work for the dealer.
The 21" Wheels are a dealer installed item. $4680.00 is the MSRP and the car would come with the 20" wheels and then they would swap it out at the dealer and the dealer would get a credit when they returned the 20" wheels back to gm performance.

The cost on the 21" wheels is $3744.00
Hurst shifter is also a dealer installed option MSRP $380.00 cost is $304.00

I was going to order the 21" as well - just way too much imho.

If we could get more cost vs MSRP pricing that would be most helpful.

When talking to my dealer, he said going from Painted Aluminum wheels to polished wheels would be about $1,295. I was like...whoa... no thanks, I'll stick with the standard ones.

These upgrades can get spendy!

If you want the Porsche dealership experience at your Chevy dealer, then go ahead and order the $5k wheel package. There are only two options that I would pay $5k or more for on a Camaro: [1] forced induction, [2] LS7 engine

Yea, the wheels are pricey with a doubt. I would just stick with the 20's.

It will probably make a difference in the ride quality as well...the new Tahoe's ride great with the 20's, but once you move to the 22's, it vibrates and is nowhere near as comfortable.
