Default About these chrome wheels...

Just want to say they really don't look all that bad:



Also, im a fan of black wheels, comp gray wheels, silver wheels, black chrome, etc. Just don't mind my chrome wheels either. That is all. Fixing to go wash here again as I think there a few bug spots from driving this week.

I don't like anything chrome on a Corvette: too 50-60's. Sorry.

I have a new C7 on order - first thing on the list: Remove all chrome: i.e., Stingray emblem and rear "CORVETTE" lettering.

I have the same wheels but in polished aluminum. I was going to buy ZR1 wheels but I really like the look of the 5 spoke and they are easy to take care of.
