[PICS] Forgiato's 800-HP Widebody Corvette Z06 with Custom Red Wheels

We’ve been documenting Forgiato’s love affair with the C7 Corvette since the beginning when a widebody Stingray was built for the 2013 SEMA show. Over the last two years, we’ve seen about a dozen different versions of the widebody Stingray built in all kinds of colors and wheel selections.

Now that Chevy is building their own “widebody” in the form of the Corvette Z06, we wondered what Forgiato would have in store for the 650 horsepower super car. As these pictures show, we are not disappointed.

[PICS] XO Verona Offers Affordable Concave Wheels For the C7 Corvette Stingray

It’s been a little while since we’ve browsed custom wheels for the Corvette so when I saw this C7 Corvette Stingray in Arctic White set up with custom Wheels by XO, I wanted to take a closer look.

And I’m glad I did. Not only do the XO Verona Wheels look great in Matte Brushed Silver against the Arctic White Corvette Stingray, I found the price to be surprisingly affordable.

[PICS] Here is the New Motorsports Wheel for the 2016 Corvette Stingray

One of the new wheel options available on the 2016 Corvette Stingray is called the “Motorsports” wheel and it’s available on the new Twilight Blue and Spice Red Design Packages as well as through the Genuine Corvette Accessories catalog.

The Motorsports Wheel made its debut at the Bash back in April, but only in the Corvette’s presentation of What’s New for the 2016 Corvette seminar.

Thanks to our friend Rick “Corvette” Conti from Ohio’s Coughlin Chevrolet, we are finally able to check out the new wheels on a Stingray.

[PICS] C7 Corvette Stingray Rides on Classic Five-Spoke HRE Wheels

We know that the Chevrolet Corvette has certain design points that are hallmarks of the model, yet look closely and you will also pick up certain design elements that are carried throughout the Chevrolet brand. One of the design hallmarks of a Chevrolet is the inclusion of five-spoke wheels. Whether it’s a Corvette Stingray, a Silverado pickup truck or a Chevrolet Cruze, most likely it comes from the factory riding on five-spoke wheels.

It’s also known that Corvette owners like to personalize their rides and one of the fastest and easiest ways to give your Corvette a new look is with a set of custom wheels. When it comes to Corvettes, HRE Wheels knows that sometimes owners want their wheels to have a little more bling, yet they want to stay with the classic stock look. If that’s how you feel, check out this Velocity Yellow Corvette Stingray riding on HRE’s RS105 forged wheels which feature the classic five-spoke design.

[PICS] Corvette Z06 Looks Stunning on Matte Black ADV.1 Wheels

We’re sure this Torch Red Corvette Z06 looked great just as it was when it came off the assembly line in Bowling Green, but a new set of wheels can add that extra personalization to the Corvette owner’s new ride. It’s been a little while since we’ve featured a Corvette showing off custom wheels, but when we first glimpsed this Corvette Z06 wearing these matte black wheels from ADV.1, we knew we had to share these photos with Corvette owners.

Back a few years ago, I was restoring my dad’s 1970 Impala and had taken it to a friend’s house to have the motor rebuilt.

The paint was rusty and the interior was musty, but I had splurged for $1,819 worth of new tires and wheels just to spruce up the old girl.

While my car was there, though, in the dark of night, out in the country of North Georgia, somebody jacked up the car and stole my tires and wheels, leaving the first car I ever drove by myself (at age 16) sitting on top of concrete blocks.

I thought that was a depressing sight.

But then I saw this posting on Corvette7 and changed my mind.
