C3 Corvettes came with factory steel wheels from 1968-1982. Aluminum wheels were optional from 1976-1982. Over time, your factory 15"x8" Corvette wheels are subject to wear and tear from curbs, driving, and the elements. As a result, your clear coat can discolor, stain, flake off and your wheels can become scratched and pitted. You could have them professionally refinished but doing it right is expensive and takes a lot of down time. In reality, refinishing them can easily cost you more than buying a new set. This 15"x8" wheel set is constructed of one piece cast aluminum and features a new advanced wheel finish called PVD chrome. PVD Chrome is superior to traditional chrome plating because it won't crack or peel, its proven durable in all climates, it's easy to clean, and it's environmentally friendly. Like the factory wheel, this wheel set accepts O.E. valve stems, center caps & emblems, and lug nuts (not included and available separately).
PVD Chrome Benefits:
Note: Requires Lug Centric Wheel Balancing (NOT Balancing From The Center Hole). Does Not Include Valve Stems, Center Caps, Emblems, Or Lug Nuts (see Related Items above). We Recommend Using Tires With The Same O.D. As The Tires You Have Now To Maintain Speedometer Accuracy. Use Self Adhesive Wheel Weights On The Inside Of The Wheel For A Cleaner Look. Cleaning With Soap And Water Is Preferred. Wheels Are Not Returnable Once Mounted.
