Default End of Chrome Wheel Discussion-see this picture-new C7

I picked up my new '17 Z51 mn7 today and the chrome wheels look incredible. I figure this picture should end the argument-chrome wins!
I traded my 2015 Z51 convertible. Incentives were great! Looking forward to driving this coupe!

Great car and congrats but that discussion will never end especially with black wheels out selling chrome wheels on the C7 Corvette.

Ok, you are an old fart

Personally, I can't wait for chrome to finally fade out. It's like a mullet on a corvette

Default Shiny wheels have been arounf since hubcaps

Polished, chromed wheels will be around as long as the average age of a Corvette buyer is over 50 !!! JMHO

I find it humorous (and a little sad) how many people seem to want to foist their opinion on others. Can we agree that all of our cars look great and that different people have different preferences??
