    I took a picture of my 04 Z06 at a much better angle than before. Also one of the first things I'll be doing to it is swapping out the wheels, something to make it stand out a little more vs other Silver Z06's.

    Now, I have 2 sets of wheels I'm considering...imagine either of these on the car (I would either stick with the stock 17" front 18" rear size, or maybe 18" front 19" rear). Which do you guys think would look better? Either one I get, they will be black center, polished outer lip.

    These look good. I think they are CCW's. Found those pics on LS2.com.

    The first set of wheels in the picture I posted is the 540's, only black centers, and they're on some crappy import with really thin rims so they don't look the exact same. I don't really like either of the rims you posted though, I have a friend with a Z06 with the 547's and just don't want them. No matter what I get though they'll be black with a polished lip.

  11. I would definately get the CCW's They're less than half of the cost of Fikse or HRE. You can get those CCW's in that picture for about 1900 for all 4 wheels. My Fikse wheels were 1000 a piece.

    Those look so horrendous that I can not put into words how truly horrendous they look. I am physically ill. I am now in desperate need of pepto bismol.

    I don't like any of the aftermarket wheels posted. I would just powdercoat your stockers... would look much nicer for alot less.

    Nindee has some good choices..HRE's are baller rims. CCW's don't compare .....stock Z06 rims are fugly IMO, dunno why Chevy ever made them. I'd rather have stock C4 rims, than Z06 rims.

    whatever you get, go staggered and REALLY wide ;)

    I'm not feeling chrome/silver rims on a silver Z06... Just to 'blah' IMO.

    I'd go with the black Z06's with chrome rivets, that's sex on a silver Vette.
