  • Six Different 2020 C8 Stingray Wheel Choices

    With help from CorvetteBlogger, we have identified six different wheel choices for the 2020 C8 Stingray — that is if the alleged specs that Jalopnik posted a couple of days ago are actual.

    Based on what was reported by Jalopnik day before yesterday, it is believed that the 2020 ME wheel choices are literally six in number. Does that lead to the thought that perhaps what was leaked in the wheel area is not a complete picture, especially as there are more than fifteen (15) C7, currently-available wheel options (counting colors and finished for all four models)? True, that a 2019 comparison is for four models, yet only two, the entry and the Z-51 models are so far expected for the 2020 C8 (albeit in a coupe and a HT spyder for each).

    Might what Jalopnik leak be an accurate, but not a full picture of internal GM ordering wheel options? We do not yet know, for according to what we have seen in every one of the 250+ spy pictures, there are only these two, distinctly different wheel choices for the 2020 Corvette.

    There is, first, the “split five spoke” wheel we have thus far only seen in either a black and/or maybe a dark, Spectra Gray metallic color that we have seen on some C7 wheels.

    Yesterday’s maybe-GM-material calls them “5-Open Spoke” wheels, and labels their color as “carbon flash” (again on those we have seen and as pictured above).

    Second, we have the wheel we have up to now called the “Mickey D” wheel:

    The alleged GM leaked material calls them “5 Trident Spoke Wheels.”

    Is that is a complete picture of all 2020 C8 available wheels? Might there not be also available dealer installed, LPO, other options, or even some yet hidden, factory-orderable additional wheels, or do we would only get to choose among these six total 2020 wheel options?

    No surprise late-announced third wheel shown to us later? Maybe more color finishes on those two above basic wheels? A chrome option?

      If not, we are down the road getting some first class vendors that sell Corvette wheels.

        I'll also be looking for the checkbox for "chrome" ....
        A thought if I might ...

          I would hope that there would be flashier wheels than what we have seen.

            Wonder about the bolt diameters and offsets. I have some Cray wheels fitted with all season tires that I use as a second set on my Z51 C7. Think they would work on a C8 ??

              Good question. I doubt we would know those answers until the reveal’s press release.

                Looking forward to the offiical release as the photos shown are not quite as attractive as I would have thought

                  The wheel photos are mules running on the roads; probably never been washed and been road debris sandblasted.
                  Enjoying my Shadow gray C8. What a car it is.

                    According to the recent "leak" the front wheels/tires are the same as current C7 but the rears are wider so the offset will be different. I don't see GM deciding to change the bolt pattern from what they've been using for decades.

                      I would like a wheel with the main spikes of the trident ones and nothing else. Simple and easy to clean.
                      There is a madness to my method!

                        I agree that the Mickey D wheels are going to be a xxxxx to clean. I am working with one of the biggest brush companies in the U.S. (been in business for almost 150 years) to have them develop a triangular shaped wheel woolie brush for those of us who own them. Of course doing so “gratis,” just wanting all of us who buy those wheels to not have a cleaning nightmare each time. How nice would it be if they were to end up making such a brush!

                          That would be cool but the other wheels with that narrow gap look worse to clean to me.

                            Hey now. I'm not that old and like the high polish chrome rims.
