It was back in October 2020 that a reader who wished to remain anonymous sent us a photo of a lightly camouflaged C8 Corvette Z06 that was testing at Michigan’s Grattan Raceway. That photo showed the car to be wearing a unique spoiler, front aerodynamic canards, and black wheels.
So far that photo remains to be the only pic of the upcoming Z06 with its wheels exposed, allowing us to see the unique spoke design for the upcoming performance version of the mid-engine Corvette.
Today, we’re taking a look at a new forged monoblock wheel for the C8 Corvette Stingray that pays tribute to those spied last October on the C8 Corvette Z06 prototype, and the best news is that they are being sold at an “absurd value” (not our words, but true nonetheless!). To give you an idea of what “absurd value” means, these AEROLARRI true forged wheels are offered with a set of four starting at $1888 plus shipping.
As CorvetteBlogger’s spy photo was the inspiration for the wheel design, our readers get an exclusive offer to save an additional $50 using the Promo Code FIFTYOFF521 or receive free center cap lettering with Promo Code CAPCOLOR521. That’s a $99 value. These offers are only good through Friday so act today! Visit aerolarri.com for ordering details.
The publication of the Z06 Corvette spy photo caught the attention of our friends at AEROLARRI and they immediately went to work with their suppliers to offer a similar wheel design for the C8 Corvette Stingray. AEROLARRI added their own innovative flourishes to the design including structural bridges between the spokes and sharper angles that suits the sharp lines of the C8 Corvette Stingray. And that’s how the AEROLARRI Z06Z monoblock forged wheel was born!
The Z06Z is a very contemporary wheel design that lends itself well to the C8 Corvette. We have always liked that “tuning fork” design, and it’s a nice departure from the traditional five-spokes offered on Corvettes. We also like the fact that if you’re paying for one of the caliper color upgrades, the openness of the Z06Z wheel allows the painted calipers to really show through.
AEROLARRI true forged monoblocks are available with multiple finishes and colors. Buyers can choose between one of the included colors as well as a large number of premium colors and finishes for an additional fee. As for our favorite choice, you had me at “Chrome Ultra Polished.” There is even a custom color option should you find the need to color match the wheels to your favorite pair of sneakers.

AEROLARRI’s Z06Z wheels are available in multiple sizes and widths so you’ll get the exact look you want. The C8 Corvette’s stock wheel sizes start at 19×8.5 and 20×11 and AEROLARRI wheels feature proprietary offsets which offer a perfectly flush fit with the fenders. For the same price, you can also upgrade to the 19×9 and 20×11.5 that’s .5 inches wider and offers a larger contact patch with the road utilizing your same factory Michelins.
Every set of AEROLARRI’s forged Z06Z monoblock wheels are numbered and limited to just 299 sets and through this special offer you can save $99 on the center cap engraving colors. Of course, your standard C8 wheel caps will also fit AEROLARRI’s Z06Z wheels.
AEROLARRI manufactures custom-made-to-order forged wheels in multiple designs, and their unique design and manufacturing process allows them to pass off the savings to you. Each wheel starts from a solid block of aircraft-grade 6061-T6 aluminum which is then milled in a CNC machine to exact specifications. These are true forged wheels that are lighter and 60% stronger than “cast” wheels. A number of videos from AEROLARRI’s website show exactly how the manufacturing process is completed.
Like all custom-made-to-order forged wheels, the time from placing your order to receiving your wheels is generally 7+ weeks at the minimum. Once your set of wheels are completed, you’ll receive photos from the manufacturer and then they are boxed and cargo shipped to the USA.
AEROLARRI’s Z06Z true forged monoblock wheels for the C8 Corvette Stingray offers the freedom of wheel customization with a set of four starting at $1888 plus shipping, so you won’t feel like your breaking the bank.
