I've never really been a big fan of the Z06 chrome wheels, but I have a chance to pick up a set of OEM wheels that have been chromed at a very reasonable price. The more I see them, the more I like them, but something in me still says to keep the originals.

Any opinions are welcome. I'd like to know what you like and just as important, why.

Thanks.

I like the looks of both quite honestly. My personal preference however is stock. The dark grey finish looks more business-like to me. Tough decision. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif

Keep it stock.

The gray finish makes a great contrast with all of the black on your ZO6.

I picked up my OEM chromies from COH last Friday. They look great. I don't know your deal but I was $857 out the door trade - tax, etc.

Are OEM Chromies the same stock forged rims that have been chromed, or a look alike z06 chrome rim? I would stick with stock unless its the same forged rim. Another option is to have your stock rims polished for about $1000. Craig

$1000 seems a bit high for the polishing. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_confused.gif
I believe I could get you a better deal if interested. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif
To me, that money could be well spent on aftermarket wheels. Just my thoughts /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_cool.gif

David - BurkeSS here in Missouri City (my twin with a QS Z) says he just bought a set of chromed wheels last weekend and says they look striking with the quicksilver. I have not seen his new wheels yet. I prefer to stay stock and save my coins for a future 425 HP Z.

I have seen the chrome on the fcalmes and FUBU' s car and it does look very nice, but I prefer to stay stock. Hopefully you can see some on a car in person. I agree with AgentZ06

David or Frank,

Could one of you guys send me the pics of the White Z with the chromies? I am trying to decide what I want to do and this would be a big help. Thanks!
