Just sharing along the way of my search for wheels but I really like the Forgelines.

On a side note, the racing stripes on the last picture looks really nice especially with that lighting.

Thanks Kyle. I actually like the OEM wheels in the second image (the one in front of the NCM) better than the Forgeline. To my eye the OEM is cleaner looking on the C8.

I actually told by Buddy had he consulted with me and not his wife and 15yr old son (Happy Wife Happy Life) I would have recommended the wheel you reference as that is the best OEM wheel for the C8.

Also, although GM is saying only 10% of the wheels are impacted with the latest issue it makes you to not want to consider and if the wheels are going to be swapped might as well go up a notch.

I totally agree with you Kyle. IMHO, the bronze ForgeLines are a stunning combination with the Zeus Bronze paint.

From a visual perspective, I like these the best! I think they are lovely. However, they would be difficult to clean. There are 20 points of contact from the forks to the outer rim...

Nevertheless, if I were in the market for choosing from the wheels posted in this thread so far for this car, these are the ones I could choose. I personally like them the most.

I like these a lot as well and have the same concern about cleaning them although this will likely be a garage queen but you could have ceramic coated.

I really think the body color boomerang on certain colors looks more integrated and lines flow better.... Do you have a side view and who makes those?

I think this thread has gone off track. It has become a C8 wheel thread and duplicates C8 Aftermarket Wheels Photos . This thread is now closed.
