Thanks Rick for the 08 Blue pic, I was however very disappointed with the new rims. :down:

I have to agree. I'm not crazy about those wheels.

I like the new blue and the new red from what I have seen. However I need to see both colors as well as the new rims in person, or at least with the center caps, to make a judgement.

My only gripe is: why do they make the best looking rim in polish instead of chrome!?:bang

Not sure about the blue, but like the red.:thumbsup:

I agree, the new stock 08 rims look like muscle car rims on a sports car:laughing:. 05-07 Five spokes all the way.

I do like the meatier looking C6 wheels on the DC C6. I think the '08 wheels look a bit "thin". But, I haven't seen them in person, I might change my mind.

The average "Joe" won't see any difference between the 07 wheel and the 08 wheel. I have to wonder why GM even bothered.

Could it be that they found a CHEAPER vendor to make this wheel and this was as close to the 05-07 wheel as thay could make?

Wasnt all that fond of the old ones, not all that fond of the new choices. I could live with either for a while til I moved on to what I really wanted.

Holy hell! Those pics are perfect! Me no likie the new wheels either. What's up with the 2008 designs, they're kind of white trashish... NASCARish. It seems whoever is designing Chevy's sedans has their hands on the newer vette designs. The 4LT designs are funky too.

Personally, I like the new wheels...remind me of my '06 Z's factory wheels...but then again the only car I kept stock wheels on is the Trailblazer SS...and with SO MANY choices of forged sets for the Vette, might as personalize!! Check out Corvette Mag and Corvette Fever...found two dozen styles I like! It WOULD be nice to have a larger lip on atleast the rear though :)
And the steering wheel is much better looking now!!
