    New Rims? Can't Decide...

    Hi everyone! Just looking for some feedback to help me make a decision. I am very interested in purchasing some Z06 rims for my 2001 white Z28 but I can't decide between black or chrome. I like them both, but I'm not sure which I would like more in the end. Any help/advice/thoughts would be awesome. Also, if you happen to have a white camaro like mine with either of these two specific rims (or just black or chrome in general so I can see the color difference), some pictures could really help me see what both would look like. Thanks to everyone!

    +1, just search to all the threads about members re-polishing/re-finishing their rims.

    No one with Chrome (besides cheap rims peeling) complains...

    Been Huntin' Rims....

    Dang it, I can't find any choices, so I'm not at all even close to that "black or chrome" question. I've read the posts here, and contacted TomzWheelz, who's been kind enough to provide some folks here with wheels, but they say no one has what I want any more.... 18x9.5 and 18x10.5 for a '97 WS6 T/A. No one seems to have stock any more of the 10-spoke Z06 motorsport wheels, which would be a bargain... and the ebay sellers just have 7.5 and 8.5" wheels.

    I'd really hate to have to drop $5k on modulars, I mean really.

    Who sells/makes wheels in the right size?

    Thanks,

    whats going on man..I have a white 98 z28. I just purchased a set of rims from O.E. wheels on ebay (sarasota, fl). These guys were awesome. I bought 17 x9.5 hypersilver w/ a machined lip. Go to ebay and search for O.E. wheels under members. They were 558 to my door.

    Thanks for all the info! I am now leaning towards these the most:

    http://www.wheelhq.com/corvette-c6-z06-ms-wheels.html

    But how do I know what size will fit the tires that I already have on my car?

    17x9.5 Wheel = 275-40-17 or 295-35-17

    17x10.5 Wheel = 295-35-17 or 315-35-17
