A nice set of aftermarket wheels can make a huge difference in the way a vehicle looks, especially when applied to a vehicle as eye-catching as the 2022 Corvette. Now we’re checking out this particular example running a set of Vossen HF-2 alloys.
As posted to the official Vossen social media channels, this 2022 Corvette is equipped with Vossen HF-2 wheels finished in Anthracite. The wheels rock a split-spoke mesh design, as well as Vossen’s hybrid forged construction process for low weight and high strength.
The Vossen HF-2 wheels are offered in a variety of colors, including Brushed Gloss Black and Tinted Matte Gunmetal as standard, and five other custom finishes (including Anthracite, as seen here) as optional. Wheel sizing is set between 19 inches to 24 inches in diameter, and 8.5 inches to 12 inches in width. Wheel pricing starts at $599 per unit.
To note, the 2022 Corvette Stingray is the third model year of the mid-engine Chevy Corvette C8, introducing just a few changes and updates over the preceding 2021 Corvette Stingray. For example, the latest 2022 model year debuts three new exterior colors, namely Caffeine Metallic, Hypersonic Gray Metallic, and Amplify Orange Tintcoat.
The 2022 Corvette Stingray is powered by the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 gasoline engine, with output rated at 490 horsepower at 6,450 rpm and 465 pound-feet of torque at 5,150 rpm in standard trim. Add the optional performance exhaust, and those figures increase to 495 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. It’s also worth mentioning that the LT2 in the 2022 Corvette ushers in updates to the Active Fuel Management system and a few small alterations to the engine calibration.

Output is sent rearwards through an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, while under the skin is the Y2 platform. Production takes place exclusively at the GM Bowling Green facility in Kentucky.
