Are you going to submit this for the calendar? I think you should...

I was thinking of that too. Get an awesome shot with some good lighting, and you may make the calender!

Those wheels though. Ugh what was Chevrolet thinking?

Either they were trying to annoy you specifically... or they merely wanted to offer a wheel that was better looking than these awful rims:

Balthazar, you're crazy. Thin-spoked rims will always be sexier than thick-spoked rims.

I don't know, those RSX wheels are pretty blah. The Cobalt's are as well, though.

Funny how opinions work, eh?

Seriously, I've never cared for the spindy-spoke rim look, esp those where the spokes get narrower towards the outside. They look weak & dainty/effeminate & expose too much of the brakes. Maybe on an exotic with big rims and big expensive brakes, but it's posing on a FWD econobox, IMO.

The Cobalt's are a bit flat, but I prefer them proportion-wise over the needle-thin spokes on the acura.

Love the red calipers, and the sexy car they're attached to.

Where in NY are you from?

I'm not a fan of those rims too much, but I do like them better than the Cobalt's. The Cobalt's are just too flat, boring, and chrome, for my liking.

Actually the ones on the SS/SC aren't chrome - they're a gunmetal finish. The Cobalt SS with the 2.4L has the polished chrome wheels.

I can't put my finger on it, but that marina looks awfully familiar.

The color of the SS wheels doesn't really come across well in those pics. In person, the effect is much more pronounced and looks great with that blue. I love gunmetal/black chrome finishes on wheels.

That is one hot and blue baby you got there, ChevyGuy. I too love the dark wheels on the SS/SC. For '07, you can get the polished version of the 18" rim on the SS/SC. To tell the truth, I think I prefer the darker version.

My wheels are much lighter than other SS/SC wheels i have seen....I think i have some of the most lightest color SS/SC wheels in the US.

ChevyGuy, how has the car been for you? Is it still tight? Any squeaks or rattles? Warranty issues?

I love those wheels... same as I love the wheels on

the late 90s MB AMGs & the 1997-2001 Infiniti Q45t.
