First, you have to call and make an appointment for them to open the locked gate so you can actually see it, THEN you talk money. It's the UD method. Lots of used car dealers are doing it now.

If your first Corvette was a C5, or earlier gen, you are probably a fan of non-black rims.
If your first Corvette was a C6 or C7, you are probably a black rim dood.
BTW, I always say rims, some say wheels, I think of wheels as both rim and tire.

As said, I like my rims to match to car, its features, nothing on any car anymore is chrome, and damn glad that is so.

To each their own, your preferences require no explanation to anyone, but I would not limit my car buying choices based on rim color.

I put black wheels on my last C7 and I loved them. My current C7 came with these gray ones that are on it. I like them but will be changing them out for some "brown" wheels in the near future....

Turning this body-off back to the owner tomorrow. Dad gave it to him at 19, a year later he hit a deer and it has sat for 35 years. The yellow has grown on us, we thought it was too bright (original 69 color) in comparison to a C2 yellow.

My first of 6 Corvettes was a brand new 1992 C4 when I was 24. All 6 of my vettes have been black, and my 2009 3LZ Z06 garage queen came with chrome rims. I effing HATE chrome rims (I'm going to have the OEM gray ones powder coated to black and start using those).

Here's what my C8 Z06 will look like:
