Default Be honest. Are the c7 rims cool at all ? No they aren't

The atomic orange rendering with spider rims now that's cool and hott looking. What do you guys think ?

I think I don't take anyone seriously that refers to wheels as "rims" or anything as "hott".

I think the Z51 wheels are nice enough and suit the car well. I think there is opportunity for after market improvement but I believe this is the case for almost all cars. The OEM wheel is nice but generic in an attempt to be "nice enough" for a wide range of tastes.

I like the Z51 "tuning fork" wheels. The car will look good with any open wheel, however. Tire Rack will do brisk businees soon enough !

And whether folks realize it or not, folks that are new to Corvette and come to this forum, are getting turned off to the forum, if not the car itself.

The Z51 wheels are not bad, but the rest are terrible. I'm gonna go aftermarket anyway.

I like the tuning fork wheels as well. When they showed that special addition with the new wheels, I had to think long and hard if I liked those more. Then I saw the normal Z51 wheels again and I remembered right away that I like those more.

The Z51 wheels are good enough looking for me. I will not be getting aftermarket wheels.

I don't buy aftermarket wheels to begin with, so you can imagine my relief when I saw the stock Z51 wheels! I was a little worried since I didn't like the C6 wheels.

Calm down. You started your thread obnoxiously and abrasively: "is X cool NO IT ISNT!!!! BE HONEST!!"

That's not how it's done. The z51 rims are cool, yes. Especially in black imho. What's not cool is your attitude - starting an attack thread and immediately jumping down some guy's throat with "you should be popped in the mouth."

Your forum etiquette needs some work.

The Z51 wheels are fine, but if Gumbys were offered, I'd get those again.

I agree with "Z" the z51 wheels look good and I am keeping them on my car.
Again, how they look is an opinion and whether you keep them on or go aftermarket is simply your freedom of choice - no good or bad about it
The only bad on this thread is the forum etiquette.
