Default New Chrome Wheels on my Grand Sport

I've had stock Gray painted, then Black Z06 wheels with the yellow stripe, and NOW Chrome. Pretty sure I like these best yet.

Look great, best of the three styles in my opinion.

I agree that they look great. I'm a big chrome fan but have to admit that your black wheels with yellow stripe looked pretty good too.

Glenn, those wheels look fantastic! The stock silver wheels weren't bad and the black with the yellow rims were, ugh, boring, but the chrome ZR1 wheels gives your car one thing none others can do...CLASS!!! Where'd you get them and were they expensive? Just asking.

^^^^^ Damn I hope those are ridiculously priced so I won't NEED them too. Only have 1 yr left to pay off '16 Z & wouldn't be worth it just give them to next person when I move on to the next BEST THING.

Indeed...I've liked those ZR1 style wheels since I first saw them. Where did you get them? I think they'd look superb on my Little Blue Vette...especially since seeing them on that Admiral Blue ZR1 that unfortunately crashed a couple of weeks ago.

They are from Bob at House of Wheels. They are GM wheels, NOT reproductions.

Coincidentally I was at the Indy 500 this year and when I saw them on the Pace Car thatís when I realized I needed them. The Indy 500 Pace Car was the same car used at Detroit a week later that you saw crash
