I have always liked the 5 spoke black mags that came on the '96 Admiral Blue GS model Vet. My thought is what if GM offered similar wheel as an option on the C5? Bet it would look great on white, red, silver, black, or any color C5 for that matter!
That way one could get the silver/gray finish of the stock wheel, the hi-polished option or a black wheel for that race-car look. For the Z, keep the present wheel and add the black mag as a choice. What do you think?

FIKSE Wheels has a killer black 5-spoke racing wheel. Super light 3-piece forged.
I was thinking of having a second set of tires/wheels for the Shark. If I do, the black Fikse will be the one. My $.02 (will be $.05 after the tax cut!)

Hey Harley...

I have those FM/5's that you're referring to
I even took a few pictures of them on my black Z06 when I was testing them out to see if the 17's from my Camaro SS would fit. The rears fit fine, but alas, the fronts didn't clear the brakes.

Even still, looked pretty good. I'm just not gonna shell out 3k+ again for rims/tires. Specially since I have to sell these now at a substantial loss.

Sit tight Zippy. I'll be rolling out my new beast in a couple of weeks. I just mounted up BF Goodrich TA Gforce KDWs on 547 HREs with black anodized spokes. 20" in the rear and 19" in the front. Very NASTY.
