Chicken little, the sky is falling, the world is coming to an end, run away, run away.

If Chevy were to ever make AWD available, I'd bet it would end up on an entirely different car than the Camaro.

BTW i can search google for images too:
DenverTaco07 is right , many of us LOVE black wheels here on Camaro5...

ECS C6 is not spending much time on the forum (check posts number) and somehow outdated in terms of current style trends here on Camaro5.
And ALWAYS remember: don't try to impose your opinion by offending others.

I say the C6 ZO6 has a timeless design as well.
That's the beauty about opinions, because I completely disagree with you. I'd take a McLaren MP4-12C, 675LT or 650S over the 458 and that's saying something because the 458 is one of my favorite Ferrari's, ever.

I'll take the F1 for looks.
Hard to choose, the F1 is a nostalgic car for sure. However it definitely exhibits the '90's exotic look. The 12C to me looks like an updated F1 for 2011.

I'm willing to drop the AWD discussion in this thread if it stops being brought up.

Posting aftermarket black multi spoke wheels on Ferraris, etc in an attempt to refute my post only supports my point. You fail, but I appreciate the support. LOL
You can configure a ferrari, on their site, with several rims, including.....wait for it...wait for it..

BLACK ONES!

Look, I don't really care what you like - but maybe you can try and be a little more tactful instead of calling anyone who likes black rims one who has no taste, a "ricer" fan, sheep following fad of the day etc.

I don't want to deny anyone ugly black wheels, so don't try to deny me the options of 5-star wheels or AWD. We all should be offered popular options from GM that people are willing to pay for.
I realized you are member since 2009 and revised my post, but you only have a few posts here (that made me think you are new, sorry).
And I never said anything about your desire of getting AWD. Good luck with that!
But it seams you're not learning, you keep on making offending statements

Wow, 5 pages of shut the &$@$ up!! There is 10 mins of my life I won't get back. It is sad that gm can reveal some dirt that we want and yet it turns into a negative breeding ground for people that can't just put in their $0.02 and walk away.

I think a both a split spoke 5-STAR wheel, and a multi spoke wheel, offered in both a natural/polished and black finishes covers a large percentage of the spectrum.
Can we agree on that ???
I hate ricers too but love the black wheels like MANY more here, what do you make of that? Good thing is that GM started to offer wheels in many finishes so that ALL of us can be happy. And happy means I would not call your polished wheels (or whatever you fancy) ugly.

Haha, this is what I found on Urban Dictionary:

ricer
(Ricer: from the latin word Ricarius meaning to suck at everything you attempt)

A person who makes unecessary modifications to their most often import car (hence the term "rice") to make it (mostly make it look) faster. The most common modifications are (but not limited to):

- Huge exhaust that serves no purpose but to make the car louder
- Large spoiler on the back that looks like something Boeing made for the 747
- Lots of after-market company stickers they don't have parts from, but must be cool
- Expensive rims that usually cost more than the car itself
- Bodykit to make the car appear lower, usually accented with chicken wire
- Clear tail lights and corner signals
- A "performace intake"- a tube that feeds cold air to their engine usually located in areas of excessive heat (behind or on top of the engine)
- Most of these riced cars (a.k.a. rice rockets or rice burners) are imports; Honda Civics, Accords, Integras, CRXs, RSXs, Del Sols Mitsubishi Eclipses, Lancers, Subaru Imprezas, however there are some domestics such as Chevrolet Caviliers, Dodge Neons, Ford Focus; small, slow, economy cars designed specifically to go slow. Please note that some Supras, Skylines, WRX's and other higher performance imports are designed to go fast, and are therfore not always considered rice. It really depends on the severity of the case.

The "ricer" attempts to make their car "performance" by adding the modifications listed above. These ricers are not confined to any one ethnic group or color, however different ethnic groups are known for certain styles.
Honda Civics with big spoilers and 4" exhaust tips are considered to be ricers.

Never knew black rims were "rice".

I think when you see an AWD Corvette then just maybe a Camaro will come with AWD as option. Weather it'll be electric or mechanical.

As long as i can put the 1LE rims on the 6th gen camaro i'm a happy camper. They are by far my favourite rim. Timeless design imo. As far as these rims go bleh there ok.
