    I have chrome C6 wheels (4x 18x10.5 w/315s)... yet to be installed... my vote goes for those.

    Man I love those big wheels & tires up front. Do you have any clear front end shots . Wonder if 315's would fit up front?

    My vote is for what ever stock wheel came on the car. I prefer to spend my money on stuff that actually makes the car go faster, the stock look just makes it that much more unsuspecting

    Unless you enjoy polishing your wheels every 2 weeks, or rarely drive your car like me, I would eliminate the 2 polished wheel choices pretty fast.

    I think the C6 or C6Z wheels would both look good but would choose the C6Z wheels just because they are a little rarer than the C6 wheels IMO. Whatever you choose, be sure to post pics once you get them

    from the pix up there, the wheels were polished 2 years before that... I polish them roughly every 2-3 years... they are nice... the key is on the wet-sanding process before the polish.

    I initially had ordered the C6-Z06 wheels... but while i was waiting on the BO, i changed my mind and went w/ the C6... the C6-Z06 look more like the stock 10-spoke and are very pretty but in the end, i think the C6 looks more elegant and nice on the car... I'll post some pix of them next month when I install them.

    I do agree that the C6 wheels look more elegant than the C6Z wheels. I think they are a little better looking wheel, but are more populated than the C6Z wheels as well.
