    From the searching I did, it appears the ZR1's are about 22-25 pounds each. 10 spokes appear to be 22-23 pounds.

    This was just a quick search I did... not sure how accurate it is.

    2008 Z06 - Velocity Yellow - OEM

    2017 Silverado Z71 5.3 - OEM

    2002 Z06 - Electron Blue Metallic - D1 - E85 - 701 rwhp 687 rwtq **sold**

    2002 Z28: M6 NBM - cam and boltons - 396rwhp 357 rwtq **sold**

    I have both the 10 spokes and ZR1's on each of our SS's, but I've never broken them down and weighed the wheels unfortunately.

    I have found that the aftermarket reproductions of say,,,the ZR1's and the ZO6 wheels for example are much heavier than the OEM wheels.

    It also makes a difference if the wheels are painted or chromed. Chrome adds a bit of weight.

    Yeah I don't like chrome on a car so the heavier option wont be there for me but it looks like the ZR1's are exactly what im looking for can't wait to find a nice pair

    This is just one of those instances where I simply don't relate to the younger generation here.
    I lived through the era of big chrome bumper cars, and everything was chrome when cars had character. Which is why I don't get all that excited over new cars produced in the last 20 years. For instance, I pretty much lost interest in corvettes after 72 when the chrome bumpers went away.

    Most here were probably born during the monochrome days and just can't relate.

    Chrome is gayness and looks cheesy! Looks cheap IMHO! Plus it weighs more

    I like chrome or polished aluminum wheels..

    I'm just not a big fan of black wheels..

    They remind me of ricers that take off thier hub caps and run the factory steels..

    Can't see black @ night very well either..imho

    I can't stand the black wheels either. Why would anyone do that?? Too lazy to clean??

    The only thing I can do black wheels on would be a big 4x4 truck. Other than that,,,no thanks.

    I'm not saying chrome doesn't look good cause it does, I just prefer not to have a flashy car and like to have silver finished wheels
