I agree, it really makes those wagon wheels go from blah to huzzah-huzzah. Those are simply some stick ons that make them look like that too. If I remember correctly, weren't the wagon wheels pretty lightweight also? If that's true, you'd think you could take those wagon wheels to a wheel shop and have them CNC'd to remove that section of the spoke and make them even lighter.... of course, I'm not an engineer so it might compromise the strength of the wheel if that was done but they do look really terrific afterwards don't they?

Yeah, I'm not a big fan of the Z06 wheels, I like the idea of modding the wagon wheels if it proved safe.

I guess the only way to find out is for someone to do it. Best part is that you can usually find these wagon wheels for sale for about $50/wheel. Not sure what the machining would cost but I do have a couple of companies I do work for (big industrial machine shops) that I might ask the cost. Would be very cool to have some good lookin' lightweight wheels, ie... "the revival of the wagon wheels"...

Another fan of the FRC here as well. Sweet looking ride there!!! I too am amazed at the change those little stick ons make. I have passed on the info about those stickers to wagon wheel owners in the past.REALLY changes the look. Luck for me I have an 00 and got the thin spokes! FRC's RULE!!!
