Adding a set of custom aftermarket wheels to your ride is a great way to stand out from the pack, but the end result isn’t always an improvement over the standard running gear. Luckily, that’s not the case with this particular C8 Corvette.
As we can see from this series of photos recently posted to social media, this C8 Corvette looks neat and clean riding on a set of Vossen Hybrid Forged HF-5 wheels. The wheels appear to be finished in a custom shade dubbed Satin Silver, which does well to complement the Vette’s crisp Arctic White paint job.
Set against the C8 Corvette’s handsome body panels, the wheels make each splash of color on the mid-engine superstar that much more dramatic. Under the wheels, the Vette’s red brake calipers really pop, as does the red lighting in the rear. Add in the stark black-and-white color scheme seen elsewhere, and the end result looks custom, but subtle as well.
Further wheel paint options include Matte Gunmetal and Gloss Black, both of which are offered as “standard” colors, while Gloss Silver, Anthracite, Matte Black, Satin Black, Satin Bronze, Textured Bronze, and Gloss Gold are all offered as part of Vossen’s custom palette.
The wheels rock a split-spoke design that’s somewhat reminiscent of the C8 Corvette’s 5-trident-spoke wheel set. Sizing for the new rollers seen here is set at 20 inches up front and 21 inches in the rear. The Vossen wheels are also available in 19-inch and 22-inch sizes.
Pricing starts at $649 per wheel, according to the Vossen website. Vossen also offers optional Billet Sport Caps in 24 color combinations to complete the look. We think a black-and-red cap would be the ideal combo for this particular C8 Corvette, but the white cap look nice as well.
