thx2,

I think they look great! Are you happy with the way they came out? Did you polish the whole wheel (behind the spokes too)?

Clear coat or not?

Very cool. :cool:

Where did you get them?

Polished looks the best IMO(LAE1HO)! I was thinking about cromies until I saw Yellohh's polished C-5 rims.

Now where can inquiring minds get polished Z06 wheels? Any problems polishing '02? Please tell :)

Mark,

I'm very happy with the shine. I would rate the shine a 10 (on a 1 - 10 scale) as it looks like chrome. Overall I would rate them a 9.

They hand polished these to get a really deep chrome like shine. If they used a lathe or machined them it would not be this bright, however hand polishing is not a perfect art so some of the spokes have a ripple here or there. Nothing you would see unless you looked way close or were cleaning them, etc..
I only had them polish the faces of spokes, the outer rim and the center bowl. The sides, back of the spokes and back of the wheels are done in an automotive gloss black.

They recommended not to clear coat since it would lose 25 - 30% of the shine and could turn yellow with excessive heat. Plus there is no snow or really crappy weather here other than a little rain once in a while - we get about 325 sunny days / year :D
