I finally broken down and painted my calipers this weekend. I used a dupicolor kit and was pleased with the results.





Please note the extreme cleanliness of the wheels, I busted my arse cleaning and waxing them while they were off. Has anyone noticed it is a PITA to clean these things? Painting the calipers was easy by comparison. I am hoping the wax will make it easier in the future.

I also noticed it is hard to see the calipers behind the stock wagon wheels.
Question: Will C-5 (not Z06) wheels fit on this car, particularly the thin spoke wheels after 2000? They are easy to clean and show off the calipers nicely.

Other people have tried C5 and C6 wheels -- without luck. The offset doesn't work.

If you decide to get aftermarket wheels -- get something with a little dish depth. 18's will look great, too! You will surprised at how well your car will look with them.

:agree The best way to clean the wheels is a soft wheel brush, one comes with the Mr Clean car wash system. They are the hardest to clean that I have seen!! Nice color by the way.
