Ill try to find better pics but I'm planning on getting an arctic white with red interior.

Can some one shop this pic with red wheels just for fun?

Changing the rear blackout region to white will look awful in my opinion. They avoided doing that on purpose to give the car a more slender appearance.

But I found a photo of red wheels:
Im not sure how I feel about the rear end until I see it in person and I wouldn't paint the entire rear but I'm not sure how the lines of the bumper would allow for painting. I like that the car is so bold but I also like changing little things to personalize the car a bit.

Thank you for replying and posting the pic of the red wheels. I'm not too fond of those red wheels but often what looks good in my mind doesn't look good in actuality. Lol

GM wanted to get further away from the C6 design which did have the entire rear painted in the same color, giving it a tallness in appearance. There is a small region of black near the bottom "diffuser" area, however. It doesn't necessarily look bad but the new design takes the rear blackout idea much farther up into the beltline:

Corvette designers have clearly desired to enhance the "exotic car" feeling of the Corvette program by taking idea cues from Ferrari, particularly with the way the rear diffuser area is treated. This is done to slenderize an otherwise fat looking car, something you don't want a sports car to look like (fat):

This is a very sloppy Photo-chopped sample, but here is a whited-out C7 rear idea:
I don't hate it.... I would want to leave some black in it like the C6 but I don't think it's possible due to how the shape it. I was thinking of keeping the license plate area black and by the exhaust.

Thank you for the shop and it's something to think about.

Dido. I think people that don't like it will have it grow on them after seeing it a few times in person
I agree, I hated a lot of the newer cars that have come out but over time I begin to like them.... Speaking broadly about many different cars.

Case in point is the new charger, I hated the new design until I saw the new super bee and that changed everything. Plus seeing the C7 in person may change everything as well.

Dante, the blue looks great and I might paint mine.... I will most likely chicken out though. Lol
