I need some clarification on black rims. I really want some black Z06 rims, but I heard that some of them weigh a lot more than the stock rims.
Does anyone sell a black rim that weighs the same or less? (Painting/powder coating mine is not an option)

Thanks everyone.

Shameless-- I will sell you my '01 stock rims that are painted black for $500. They have a little track rash but not too bad. Includes black center caps. I'll get a picture to you if you would like. Steve.

The stock wheels painted aren't any heavier than the stock wheels. ;) It's just the reproduction Z06 wheels and wheels like the Motorsports. It's cheaper to make a heavier wheels and since most people buy the wheels for the "bling" factor, they probably don't care.

I have chrome wheels on my Z. I was wondering how you can tell if they are OEM's chromed, or reproductions that are chromed. And what is the weight difference?
