Bad ***!!!! Are those 505A's?....I'm tossing around the idea of getting mine coated black....Polished wheels are just too much of a PIA to maintain....Did you buy them like that, or did you have someone else coat them?....Any more pics???

Has anyone ever though of hyperblack rims on silver? I think hyperblack painted stockers would look sick.

Wow what a beautiful car. The chrome wheels really make it pop. IMHO black wheels don't do the car justice.

my opinion, keep your stock chrome or get chrome spyders.......chrome just looks good on silver. Def'ly would not do black, the details disappear......and if you go aftermarket, concave monoblocks!!

Long time lurker...finally registered because of this thread from a google search.

I hate to resurrect a dead thread but I have to thank Chopper1. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!! I recently purchased a C7 and have a silver C6. I've been stressing out how I wanted to mod the outside of my C6 to get a unique but conservative look and your example is PERFECT. All the extra pis nailed it. It entails many of the things I wanted to do but wasn't sure how'd they look. Now I know and they look positively AWESOME! Thank you again.

BTW, ALL the silver C6s in this thread look great!
