Default forged wheel decision

Today, I begin the 4-5 week wait to have a set of forged wheels machined and shipped. Trying to time their arrival with hitting 1500 miles on the odometer-the proper break in to start tracking. Chose design EH176 that looks compatible to oem. Getting a stronger wheel reduces concerns over the widely reported cracking/bending Z06 wheels. Ordered gloss black. Keeping fingers crossed to post pics early July.

keeping factory sizes 19x10 and 20x12

Should look nice - I did the same thing and replaced the OEM wheels with forged except I had to go with a simpler design (and easier to wash - I get OCD with wheels and the stock were a pain to get all the nooks & crannies).

Looking forward to the pics when you get them - or better yet, in person since we're both in Kent!
