That is the first pewter I've seen with the mag wheels! Cool!

Old fuddy duddies are definitely allowed to give their opinion! Thank you!

Can't wait until next year!!! The decision is going to be difficult but fun!

MotoJB, I thought you would be pushing the F14's! I love them on your car!!!

Saw a set on Flebay that were deep dish black and chrome. They would look sweet on pewter! I have all chrome now, lot's of bling, looking to make the switch as well....

Those are my favorite so far ! They would look good on my silver coupe too. I still think the FRC C5 is the best looking Corvette

You could always go with a factory magnesium. Lighter is better.

I have been wanting some C6 chrome 5 spokes for quite some time for our pewter. I was talking with my new neighbor last week and he has a set which I will be picking up tomorrow. I'll have to check around the neighborhood, maybe someone has a set of PS2s to mount on them !!!

IMO, polished aluminum, at least on the rim lip, maybe do the center spoke area in a gunmetal metallic finish if you don't want the whole wheel polished.
