I heard from an insider today that the new Z06 wheels may go into production soon (before the end of the '01 model year). They will look like the '01 forged wheels, but as you know they will be cast. The spokes will not quite be as sharp because the cast wheels require a more rounded spoke. He said hang on to your forged '01 wheels, they are way superior in strength and will be more valuable. We will see I guess.

I also heard that they are now producing close to 20% of production in Z06s, which is supposedly a sign that the known wheel shortage has been remedied by a switch to the new wheel either now or imminently!

There are many for sale in my area, a few sales people told me that several customers have cancelled their 01' orders and are getting 02's instead.
