    I would ordinarily agree with you regarding liking titanium finish over other finishes; however, the ZO6 has so many dark carbon flash exterior accents that I think a darker wheel choice makes sense and better blends with in with the overall theme of exterior, IMO. That said, the titanium satin do still look dark enough to work and I think would look especially good on silver cars.
    I like that it’s dark enough to blend, but has enough silver in it to be able to see the detail in the design vs. the standard black wheel.

      Absolutely. I am leaning toward Satin Graphite at the moment but may change to Titanium Satin for that reason. Want to see in person first to 100% confirm they are dark enough for the look I am going for.

      I eliminated the black wheels from contention when they decided to make them gloss.

          Front splitter with standard rear spoiler may be my favorite look.
          Love the graphite wheels!

            Confirmed by Harlan that these are Titanium Satin. It is a good looking standard wheel.

                To answer the OP's question, though, I really like the Titanium Satin in post # 2 and # 4.

                  So do I. They look just like the wheels in post number 1.

                    Regardless, this picture in post number 1 is not a true representation of the titantium wheels. One only has to go back to the original photos of the Z06 tour where pictures were taken of the wheels on the wall and almost everyone of them were incorrect in the manner they were shot. Post number 4 is an accurate photo of the titanium wheels vs the satin graphite.
                    Trying to judge this based on photos is always going to be a problem. The exposure in the camera can make the wheels look much darker or lighter than they do to the naked eye.

                    I think the other 2 photos give a better representation of what the wheels actually look like to the eye. The exposure in the first photo makes them look darker than they really are.​

                      The wheels on the blue car in post 35 look just like the wheels in post 1.

                      Regardless:

                      The original purpose for the post was to show people various looks at the standard titanium satin wheel. That is all the post was trying to accomplish, then somehow the thread turned into a debate about what the wheels actually were (titanium satin vs Satin graphite) and caused confusion all around. The point is and was that these are titanium satin wheels and showing different examples with different lighting. Again, you will not confuse titanium satin with satin graphite because satin graphite basically appear black, especially at any distance.

                        These are not Titanium Satins but for those still debating whether the extra cost for the polished ones (option “S0D”) are your choice?
