Default Z06 wheel option question

I did a search on this first and canít find anything. Iím somewhat seriously looking into trading in my Ď17 Camaro SS on a Z06. A local dealer has a Z06 with the satin black wheels with red stripe option. Personally Iím not a fan of them and just want the regular pearl nickel painted wheels.

On the Camaro the most expensive optioned black wheels also come with the standard silver 5 spokes which is why I ask. If this is the case Iíd probably either see if they could knock it off the price and keep them or just try to resell them. I know it may not be quite that simple though as the options are tied to the VIN from my understanding.

I know I could probably ask a dealer this but im not looking for a sales pitch. Thanks in advance.

Just from memory (forgive me I'm old) I believe the pearl nickel wheels were a fairly expensive option.

Pearl nickel wheels are standard on the Z06.

Yeah there is a different "blade" wheel that is pearl that is an upgrade but I like the standard one. This is on a new leftover 2017 btw. I was hoping someone with one would chime in.

I think you would be able to find someone on here that is in your area to do a trade. They get optional wheels and you get the standard ones that you prefer.

If you were local I'd trade with you. Unfortunately I'm in CO. My holdover '17 Z07 is being delivered Friday and I tried to get them to trade them out for black wheels but they wouldn't...

you could get the wheels painted or powder coated. Ask the dealer if they would throw that in for nocharge. i Was looking at a c7z with black wheels and the dealer offered that. But I found a better deal on a car that was equipped exactly the way I wanted
