Default They're stock wheels

In the brochure I am looking at the Pearl Nickels look darker.

Whatever they are, they look great on your car.

I hope to be ordering very soon. Just got my GM Family Discount number from my wife's uncle.

Q8W: chrome aluminum

I went with the Black rims.



That video was shot before I had 20% tints done and the Stage 2 rear spoiler.

I have Carbon Flash side skirts going on her this week and the Stage 2 Front Spoiler in the near future

Crap, I can't afford those.

Hoping the nickel painted rims look good.

Have wife looking over my shoulder as I am putting my options together.
Trying to squeeze in the 2LT interior with PDR. May have to go with one or the other.

Can add new rims down the road, when wife is not watching.

The nickel painted wheels look GREAT. I've seen them not only on the 2017 Grand Sport but also on the 2013 427 Convertible (on which it was also the standard wheel). As far as I'm concerned, it's the best-looking wheel ever offered on a Corvette, period.

Thanks, I am feeling pretty good about getting them.

Would love to see an admiral blue vette with them before I order, but I think they will look good.

GREAT looking car! I agree about the sliver painted wheels, besides $2k plus tax for the chromes? Are you kidding me? If you have to have them, get the painted on your new car, wait 6 mos. and buy a set of chromes here on the forum for half that (and have two sets).

It does have metal flake in the paint. Just has to be in bright/direct light to really notice it.
