    c6 wheels: rivets or no rivets?

    I'm looking at these on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/17X9-...QQcmdZViewItem

    Originally I was going to get the type w/o rivets because it was cheaper, but this aint a bad price. I wish i had some pix of T/A's with riveted C6 wheels. How do you guys think it would look? Which style looks better?

    Haha, that's what I said to myself before I saw your post.

    I usually don't like the look of rivets, but they look pretty good on those c6's. The only thing I thought of was having to clean the brake dust around each rivet. Could be a PITA.

    On C5 wheels, I hate rivets with a passion. But on those C6's, they actually don't look bad. They add some interesting detail to an otherwise simple wheel.

    I think either way they'd look good on your car though.

    Did you ever end up selling the Cobra's?

    I agree. Most wheels I see rivets on they look like crap. But on those its kind of ok. I'd get more into detail about how I feel but the one nazi mod here doesnt seem to like it when I use my freedom of speech

    i like the rivet look, it gives the rims more beef.

    No rivets. It's be a real PITA to keep clean them. I'm getting sick of cleaning the 10 spokes on my wheels without rivets. Next time will be 5 spokes at the most.

    Rivets look decent... But I would say no rivets, I have the C6 chrome without rivets and they look awesome and clean, one of the best looking rims I think on an F body.
