Corvette Z06 Wears D2Forged Wheels for SEMA

SEMA 2012

The Corvette Z06 gets some new wheels in time for the biggest tuning expo in America.

Chevrolet is preparing to debut the next-generation Corvette C7 in January at the Detroit Auto Show, but until then the current Z06 remains a favorite among performance-obsessed enthusiasts. D2Forged Wheels is using the outgoing 2011 model as the base to show off its CV3-LP wheels at the 2012 SEMA Show. The five-spoke LitePack wheels on the Corvette Z06 seen here measure 20 inches in diameter, with 10-inch widths up front and bigger 13-inchers at the back.

The former weigh 20 lbs while the latter come in at 21 lbs. They have brushed aluminum centers and a chrome lip to play along with the Vette's white paintjob. The new wheels have been prepared specially for fitting on Corvettes and have reduced lip depth, a deep concave center disk profile, step lip construction and have had the excess forging material reduced. All said, D2Forged's wheels add an "aggressive aesthetic" to the mighty Corvette Z06.
