Hey guys,

Just stumbled upon this C6 tonight, and got me thinking, would white wheels look good on my Z. I did some searching and found another white Z with white wheels.

Its not too common, so I would like to hear your thoughts on this look. Thanks.

C6




C5 Z



My current ride. FYI I have nearly the same exact wheels as the C6 does.

Black car/black wheels look good, White car/white wheels are a little too much white for me besides they'd be a bitch to keep clean. The polished like you have now look great

I am not a white car fan or a white wheel fan, but the two together look pretty damn good.Well, the C6 with the polished lip looks good, the C5 w/o the polish is too much...but I agree, it's going to be horrible to keep clean, Hell a three mile drive to the store makes my polshed wheels look bad....bad enough I am going to go with black soon.

I like the top z, i think the key is the 19/20 inch combo,'with the deepest dish you can fit with the polished lip. Rain would be a killa though.

Color matched wheels, and or calipers to body is trendy, but will be old news soon.

If you are bitchin about brake dust now, pc them white! :D

I agree that the C6 looks hot; however, I think it's a combination of the rims, lowered, red calipers, clear markers in the front and white ones in the rear. I have to agree that it would be a biatch to maintain clean. On the other hand, I think yours looks bad ass just the way it is. :thumbsup:

Wow, I am literally on the fence about this, and it appears you guys are about the same. haha... its pretty much 5 for and 5 say its just fine as is. I should have started a poll.

I think your ride looks fine the way it is with those polished wheels. If it is a show car, then go with the white on white theme but it will be a bitch to keep clean. If it's a driver, then keep it the way it is now. Just my humble opinion.

I think your 'Vette looks great as-is. I like white wheels on the white car, but yeah, if you drive the car at all they are gonna look pretty crummy real quick.

First off, your wheels look great as they are, works well with the car.:thumbsup:
They would also look great done the same as the ones on the C6, basically spokes only. If you were to do the whole wheel, that would be too much white as in the C5 pic IMO. :cheers:

P.S. Ceramic pads do wonders for brake dust.
