    Which corvette wheels to buy?

    hi, i just wanted to get a few opinions on corvette wheels for my black 00 ws6? im torn between polished z06 or black painted c6... and ive looked for photos of both on the car to help influence my choice but couldnt find any good ones. if you have or can find any pictures of these wheels on the car and have an opinion it would be greatly appreciated! thanks, Pat.

    you'll find deals including four new installed/balanced 375 Nexus tires for around $750, that a deal. also know any replica wheels are considerably heavier than real vette wheels
