Just curious.....IF GM offered chrome or hi-polished wheels on the Z06, would you choose this option over the standard gray/silver finish?

My choice...YES!

Another YES here. The chrome Z06 wheels look spectacular.

They probably didn't want to add the extra 3 grams/wheel of weight from the chrome :)

Not only yes, but Hell Yes. I have been contemplating this for months. Pollish, chrome, leave stock, HRE's, etc. If a chrome option would of been available I would of done it in a heartbeat.

I would rather see ALL interior/exterior colors available:D

I would still have ordered EBlue, but with a Silver interior:cheers:

I tend associate chrome with cars that emphasize looking quick over being quick. So my gut says no..

But I haven't seen a black Z with chrome wheels (and brake dust ;)), so I'm witholding judgement until I've had some quality time to stare at mine.

As an autocross/road racer type, I kinda like this. You chrome guys help us get new wheels cheap :)

What I am wondering about.. How would the stock wheels look black anodized?? Black wheels don't always look as good as I'd hope, but I'm wondering..

RAT has black wheels

RAT (Ram Air Tony) on the other forum has black (painted I think:-?) wheels on his MY ZO6. I think they look cool:cool:

I too would like to see chromies as an option, but not as the standard. I'm not actually sure I like chromies better. Kinda undecided. BTW, this poll doesn't make any sense to me. What if I want to see chromies as an option and I'm also willing to pay for it?:roll:

Mr Beggar:

I agree with you 100% on the poll....this was my very first post using the "poll" option, and I was unaware of how the computer tallies the results. I'm sorry :(

Zippy :) :)

Absolutely!!

When I autocross I run my silver ZR1 wheels and they look great. CHROME Z06 or ZR1's are the nuts! WHen I sell my 17x9.5's I am getting the 11's for the rear. Think this pole is one sided eh??? :cheers:

I like the style of the wheels but would much prefer them polished/clear coated. In fact, I am going to have mine done as soon as I can give up the Z for a few days. Will have to pull the wheels, have the tires pulled off, then haul them in to the shop that does this (1 hour away), then wait a few days, go back in and get them, return here and have the tires re-mounted/balanced w/ the stick on weights. Sort of a PITA. I thought the shop doing this would peel tires/remount and balance...nope, gotta bring them in naked. My quote was $120/wheel. Only thing nice about the factory wheels is that they hide brake dust.

I'd pay for factory Chrome if I could in a second. I'd even trade in the heated mirrors for them. Heck I'm in California, what do I need heated mirrors. I only drive the thing in nice weather anyway. Oh..sorry, this is the chrome wheels thread, not the heated mirror thread... where's my head. :roll:

Would like some 19 / 20 HRE 547's or 541's but $6,000 :eek: :eek: :eek:

Anyone know of nice chromies for under $3,000 (not just Chromed OE knock offs).
