A new alloy wheel option was recently added to the 2020 Corvette configurator. Sporting a five-open-spoke design and painted finish, the new alloys are offered as a Genuine Corvette Accessory item.
For those that may be unaware, the Genuine Corvette Accessory designation means these new 2020 Corvette rollers are not equipped from the factory, but rather are shipped separately to the dealer, and are included as a “second set” of wheels in addition to the standard wheels.
As is the case with the other C8 wheel options, these new 2020 Corvette wheels are made from aluminum. Tagged with RPO code 5DG, the new wheels get a familiar five-open-spoke design, but unlike the C8’s Q8P wheels with a Bright Silver-painted finish, these new rollers come with a Performance Pewter-painted finish, lending it a slightly bronzed tint.
Sizing is staggered, measured at a standard 19 inches by 8.5 inches in front, and 20 inches by 11 inches in the rear. Pricing is set at $2,695. Center caps are sold separately.
Buyers that want to customize their 2020 Corvette have a rang of optional wheels to choose from. Beyond the new Performance Pewter finish covered here, alternative wheel finishes include Bright Silver-painted (Q8P), as mentioned above, as well as Carbon Flash-painted with machined edge (QEQ), Machined-face with Sterling Silver-painted (QES), Machined-face and Spectra Gray-painted (QET), and Black-painted (5DF).
We think the new Performance Pewter finish would make for a nice complement to any of the black, white, or silver paint options offered on the 2020 Corvette C8. We also think it would make for a nice addition to the Zeus Bronze Metallic paint option.
