That color is hot. But the wheels are screaming "aftermarket".

The C7 feels a little tighter when sitting in it compared to the Z. I am a big man however the Z feels roomier.

You've never heard of black cherry or burgundy as colors? Because that's essentially what this is. And an up barge premium paint it has tons of metal flake in it too

Except they're not. They ar the normal Grand Sport wheels in chrome. And they're bitching. You black wheel folks are going to wake up before too much longer and realize what a silly fad that was. These wheels show so much more detail and look so more engineered/mechanical than black or gray wheels...

They feel about the same inside to me. The visibility is better in the Vette, too. Those small back windows on the Z are useless since the headrest is always in the way, but they're usable on the Vette.

A fun, multi-page, debate on the fad of black wheels.

When will the fad of having all black wheels end?

I suspect when the "fad" of manually-driven cars ends, then most of the associated car "fads" will go to the wayside.

Fad? If anything chrome should be the fad when it comes to wheels. Chrome was cool late 90's early 2000, but its really tired and played out with the exception if done right on a sedan. Do you see Ferrari's or Porsches with oem chrome rims? In my opinion they look tacky on a sports car.
