As promised, here are a few pictures of the SS with the new chrome wheels. I should have bought these months ago. The pictures don't begin to show how good they really look.

SS,

Your right about the pictures not doing them justice. I have seen them in person on a few Z's including FUBA's white one and they make the whole car look great!

Looks Great! Really changes the look of the car.

Have considered lowering it a little bit?

Best Regards,
Chris

Looks real good man.
I never saw that picture of the rear end. Looks nice, kind of like that Specter Werkes car. Love the stripes, totally retro.

For a minute there I thought I was going to see a chromed Z06. I like the chromeillusion color, but a chromed car would be a real eye cathcher.

I think chrome wheels looks best on lighter colored cars with white beiong the lighest.

David...I had to laugh. This is a previous post of yours dated 2001-03-13 04:14:00. LMAO JK


I was really looking the car over this weekend and have come to the conclusion that the wheels make the Z06 look like the exotics of the 60's and 70's. I've always liked them and would not want to change them. I haven't seen a wheel that I think would make the car look any better except maybe chrome for car shows, although I wouldn't want the chrome on the car all the time.

Frank, that is the way I felt for the longest time. As I stated in my original post about getting the chromes, I wasn't a big fan of them until recently (yesterday). Looks like I was wrong for quite a while, but I have seen the light./phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks for the complements. The car looks 1000% better with the wheels. In fact, I was thinking about painting the car or even trading it as it was just looking too plain. The wheels saved me a lot of money./phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif I think the car now looks as good, if not better, than any of the show cars I've had.

VPRKLLR, that is the Spectre Werkes rear fascia. Another good mod. It better be with all the hassle and expense that was involved with it.

Chris Y2K FRC, the front of the car is lowered as far as the stock bolts will take it. The back was lowered, but it was lower than the front so I raised it back up. I think it looks better this way.

Mr. SS:

Very nice! You have one of the best looking white Vets I've seen! Where did you get your chrome wheels?

The chrome wheels are very nice. Can you guys start a rumor that the stock ones are defective so I can convince the girlfriend to let me get a set. Oops she just walked up.
Bye

One of the greatest aspects about being a VETTE enthusiast is that you can change your mind and it's KEWL! I have enjoyed changing my mind a few times. FUBU69/LES
