More about the C8 Corvette Z06 Carbon Fiber Wheels

The 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is a high-performance sports car that is available with a set of optional carbon fiber wheels. These wheels are made by Carbon Revolution, an Australian company that specializes in carbon fiber components. The carbon fiber wheels for the Corvette Z06 are 20 inches in diameter at the front and 21 inches in diameter at the rear. They are also wider than the standard wheels, measuring 10 inches wide at the front and 13 inches wide at the rear.

The carbon fiber wheels for the Corvette Z06 weigh 41 pounds less than the standard wheels. This weight savings is significant, as it is all unsprung weight. Unsprung weight is the weight of the wheels, tires, and brakes. Reducing unsprung weight improves the handling of a car by reducing the inertia of the rotating components. This makes the car feel more responsive and agile.

In addition to the weight savings, the carbon fiber wheels for the Corvette Z06 also offer a number of other benefits. They are stronger than the standard wheels, and they are also more resistant to corrosion. The carbon fiber wheels also have a unique look that sets the Corvette Z06 apart from other cars.

The carbon fiber wheels for the Corvette Z06 are a popular option, but they are also expensive. They cost $9,995 for the Carbon Flash-painted wheels, or $11,995 for the visible carbon fiber wheels. However, for buyers who are looking for the ultimate in performance and handling, the carbon fiber wheels are a worthwhile investment.

Here are some of the pros and cons of the carbon fiber wheels for the Corvette Z06:


  • Weight savings of 41 pounds
  • Stronger and more resistant to corrosion
  • Unique look


  • Expensive
  • More difficult to maintain
  • Can be damaged more easily

Overall, the carbon fiber wheels for the Corvette Z06 are a great option for buyers who are looking for the ultimate in performance and handling. They offer a number of benefits, including weight savings, strength, and resistance to corrosion. However, they are also expensive and more difficult to maintain.
