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.
