I love those f'king wheels....

It just hurts my chest to pony up a good chunk of cash knowing I have to settle for flat faces. Those are some of the best looking wheels for the C7, period.

Ben, talk Forgline into hopping on the HRE bandwagon and making a cheaper flow formed version for 2-2.5k

Fred having already added the power to his C7 wanted more traction so he asked me to do a road race setup on the GA1Rs as well as a drag setup on the GA3s! Here are the GA1Rs in matte bronze

HREs for your Saturday viewing pleasure! I'm a sucker for brushed tinted wheels with a polished lip

Lots of beautiful cars and pictures in this thread. But I keep wondering why so many people want to black out wheels, which makes them hard to see, and why so many people want to see calipers and discs. Which are functional and necessary but not particularly attractive visually. When I look at earlier Corvettes with aluminum wheels, like the slotted wheels on the C3, or the 17" 1988-1990 wheels, I see really beautiful wheels that stand out while also contributing to the overall look of the car.

All the cars in this post are beautiful, but I think might be more so if the wheels were more visible than the brake assemblies...IMHO.



In the more recent times, I see mostly wheels that are almost not there, blacked out or with thin spokes, so visually one is looking mostly at calipers and discs.

Although the spokes are thin, you might like these more

How about some Modulare's today? I almost did a set of these for my C7 last year

[[email protected];1590336891]Although the spokes are thin, you might like these more

They do look good. One thing I've been wondering about these more modern, open small spoke wheels...is whether the open design helps with brake cooling. Going back to the C4s, those wheels had openings and spokes arranged to act as a kind of fan. The 84-87s were directional fan like, the 88-90s were also like that, and then the sawtooth wheels from 91 to 96 also seemed designed to facilitate air flow across the brakes. As these wheels rotated, the fins pulled or pushed air over the brakes. The newer more open designs might do that, but don't look designed for that purpose (in that the spokes are not angled or aerodynamically tapered the way the ones on the C4s were).

I wonder if anyone ever actually did any tests to see if this mattered from an air flow and brake cooling standpoint? With the very open designs today, I'd imagine the brakes get plenty of air, but that's a guess. If the spokes were tapered and angled to form more of a fan, the effect might be even better.

The aero of the incoming air with the brake ducts takes care of all of this now. I have wondered how much directional wheels might help promote brake cooling too though.
