Arrow Photo Shoot - Cyber Gray Z06 on HRE Wheels

It finally stopped raining in the Houston area, so I ventured out today and snapped some photos of my 2009 Z06. I recently put on the HRE 893R wheels. They are color-matched to cyber gray, and have a silver pinstripe on the lip. They came out a shade darker, but look very close in direct sunlight. 19x10 fronts with 285 tires, 20x12.5 rears with 345 tires. I went with Nitto Invo tires, same ones I have on my Viper. It makes an appearance in the last few photos.

Enjoy!
Tony

Nope, the firetruck got a call and was moving out. I timed it just right

The pics are sick!!! I just ordered that same profile from modular concept in brushed aluminum for mine last week. Now I really can't wait. Are you using a rig in the first shot or riding shotgun in another car?

I was riding in my 1970 Chevelle on the rolling shot. I guess it is as big as an oil rig

Great pics, great cars!

When is a blower going on the Z06? I have heard the LS7 is not too friendly with blowers. Maybe a 5-6 psi only kit?

Z06 can safely make ~650 rwhp with a blower or turbos. Since this is my daily driver, I may wait a while to do anything like that. The car drives so nicely as-is. 11.55 @ 125 mph 100% stock is fun.

Thats too funny I meant a camera rig. But in any case to pull a shot off like that while rolling I have to give it to you that is some good photography!

Z06 traps 125 in the quarter. The Viper goes 135. It wouldn't even be a contest.
