We’ve learned quite a bit about the upcoming Z06 variant of the mid-engined Corvette since its debut, including hearing it start up and rev in person and taking a close look at all 12 available exterior color options. Now, we’re diving into all of the available 2023 Corvette Z06 wheels.
Overall, a total of eight options are available as far 2023 Corvette Z06 wheels are concerned. Six of these eight are represented by different finishes for the standard double seven-spoke “spider” wheel design. Of these six, four are factory-installed wheels while two are classified as accessory wheels.
The remaining two wheel options are represented by one five-spoke carbon fiber wheel design in two finishes – exposed or painted carbon fiber. Both of the carbon fiber wheels are offered as add-ons on models with the performance-enhancing Z07 Performance Package.
The C8 Corvette Z06 features 20-inch wheels up front and 21-inch wheels out back. The standard wheels are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S ZP tires while the carbon fiber wheels are wrapped in stickier Michelin Sport Cup 2 R ZP rubber. All models feature a size 275/30ZR20 tire up front and 345/25ZR21 in the rear, regardless of the tire.

Even though Chevy only offers two general design options for the 2023 Corvette Z06 wheels – one being for the forged aluminum “spider” wheels and the other for the five-spoke carbon fiver wheels – it still has managed to broaden the scope of personalization options for Corvette customers.
Pricing for the wheel options has not yet been announced, nor has the actual C8 Z06 price. A recent poll on GM Authority shows that the majority of readers expect the starting price of the 2023 Corvette Z06 to land in the $85,000 – $89,999 range.
Which 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 wheels do you prefer, and how would you spec your own mid-engine beast? Sound off in the comment section below.
As we already know, the 2023 Corvette Z06 is powered by the all-new 5.5L V8 LT6 gasoline engine, which features dual overhead camshafts and a flat-plane crankshaft. This engine makes an impressive 670 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, making it the most potent naturally aspirated V8 engine ever installed in a production vehicle.
The result is a 0-60 time of 2.6 seconds, while the aerodynamics upgrades as part of the optional Z07 package are capable of generating as much as 734 pounds of downforce at 186 miles per hour.
