Nissan 370Z Forum  

Couldn't wait any longer - bought a Stingray

Anything more than 10 feet away and black wheels have basically zero detail - just looks like a black hole where wheels should be. I don't get the attraction.

I find the chrome wheels Awsome in your GS.

But I would think it wouldn't be good in some colors like velocity yellow Or white C7

This one is not so bad either on a burgundy ZO6.

But everything is relative to ones own eye. Both looks great to me.

I think the red accent did the contrast on the black wheels to make it pop out.

Plus the red calipers

You still haven't learned how to position your mirrors?

Chrome=BLING,BLING, some people like the performance without the flash. I saw a YouTube clip of an all chrome 370Z in the UK I think. Chrome in any aspect makes me wanna
Just my honest opinion but in the end if it is what you like, to each their own right?

Guys this thread is about our fellow member sharing his GRand Sport Corvette.

Everybody has the right to share his/her own opinion about whats good or bad about having chrome wheels or black wheels. I did share mine.

Lets get back to topic of congratulating our fellow member for moving up two notch higher in getting one of the greatest engineering marvel that Chervolet has given to the American people and all car enthusiast around the world.

At the end of the day whatever is our opinion about that chrome wheels good or bad, OP drives around Dallas Texas mighty and proud that he drives a beautiful C7 GS.

While the rest of us still drives an outdated 7 going 8 year old sports car. Sadly.
So who among you is bold enough to make that switch and live your biggest dreams?

Op on behalf of all the members I apologize. We are not here to bash your Corvette.
We admit most of us are envious but we are happy for you and your new beast of a C7 GS with or without chrome .

Btw do you have an account at any Corvette forum? PM me and I'll see you there.

I just felt the need to speak for myself, I am happy for Ped. The latest Vette is the only model Vette that actually appeals to me. I feel Chevy got it right for once. So, bashing? No I wasn't bashing on the Vette or our fellow forum friend's new ride. I was kind of bashing chrome while explaining everyone likes what they like.

And lastly, there are NO envious feelings here. I am happy with what I drive no matter how many times I myself have been bashed for driving them.

Cheers!

I had proper mirror positioning in the Z and also in the Vette, where you can't see any part of your own car. I'm just saying the Vette has a bit better visibility than the Z.

It has the shorter gearing of the Z51 (shorter than the Z06 gearing). Mine is the 7-speed manual.
