Which do you guys find more attractive on an SS, me personally i like the ZR1's which is why i am currently working towards a trade.
Any opinions and input are appreciated, just would like to get a consensus!
Thanks,
Austin.

10 spokes all day everyday, i have had zr1s and they got old fast, if your going for c6zr1s i can see doing a trade but 10 spokes look perfect on camaros,

ZR1s no question, they are much better looking in any finish (painted or chrome). ZR1s are the best looking factory wheel ever issued on a 4th gen Camaro, IMO.

I would trade off the 10-spokes in a heartbeat for comparable condition ZR1s.

i have c5z rims on my car and would trade them for some zr1 real quick...theres a reason the simple 5 spoke design of an FM5 is every1's favorite on here...

I have a set of chrome Zr1's on my 99 SS that are factory, and I've been trying to trade for a set of chrome 10 spokes for over a year. If you lived closer you could have mine, but it's my dd so I can't ship them.

unfortunately, i've been at college the past 4 years and have left my dad in charge of keeping the car clean :eyes: so the rims have oxidized really bad since they were cheap ebay rims i got when i was 15.

But to the OP, do you have a spending budget or are these you 2 main options your looking at?

i love the 10 spokes... just wish they made them wider in the rear. maybe a custom deal or something.. so i'm going with the ZR1's

The 10 spokes scream "I'm an SS"

17x9 10 spokes > 17x9 zr1
17x9 10 spokes < 17x11 zr1

Pretty much every camaro has the zr1's because they are such a simple good looking wheel, but are way overplayed. Only reason I'd swap to zr1's would be for a good budget wheel that you can stuff some huge tires on.

If you want chrome then the ZR1s look better. If they're painted or polished then the 10 spokes look better.

I have never cared for zr1s. To me they Definately show they came out in like 1990. I have chrome 10 spokes on my truck and anniversary 10 spokes on my camaro. To me the zr1s look to much like the 97 to 99 16" 5 spoke that were on regular camaros.

I think the zr1's are nice, but a little outdated :mullet: and plain. The 10 spokes look more updated and look very good on a f-body

my car came with silver ten spokes and at first i thought they were ok until i got new wheels now i think they look like crap. However i have always thought the chrome ten spokes look 10X better for some reason, if my car came with them i would have probably left them on until i could afford some ccw's or other decent wheels.

As a bonus, this pic actually gives a side-by-side comparison. See what wheels the other car has? ;)
I may have to retract my previous statement, the 10 spokes look pretty good in chrome as well.

ZR1's over the 10 spoke wheel any day. I never really looked the look of the 10 spoke wheel on a Camaro. Just doesn't cut it for me.

Thanks, and I'm not a fan of silver/polished in either of the wheels. Chrome all the way. That's one of the reasons I bought my car was because of the stock chrome 10 spokes. 5 years later I still have them, plus 4 more. I run ET Streets some times, and street tires other times.

Yes they do!

The 10 spokes do look a lil nicer but I wouldnt say 10X nicer. Either way you cant go wrong choosing they both look badass in chrome.

The only way i would go zr1s is if there were 11inch rears, i keep telling oe wheels they need to make a 10 spoke in a dd, and offer them in bigger sizes like a 18, but if they didnt come on a vette they wont make them lol

Generally I like 10 spokes on LS1 cars and ZR1's on LT1 cars.

I feel with an LT1 SS hood and a set of ZR1's my car would be legit.

That being said....I dont mind my wheels ;)

Group your off topic, find another thread to slut out your car lol, i dont mind the z06 wheels but i only like them in a 18,i still stand imo though the c5dd is the best looking budget wheel there is, a simple 5 spoke that looks better than the zr1s,op have you thought about c6zr1s? I think those are killer
