The 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 offers impressive performance right from the get-go, but for those customers that need a little extra customization and a little extra speed, optional upgrades like the carbon fiber wheels are right on target. The question is – how much do the 2023 Corvette Z06’s carbon fiber wheels actually cost?
As it turns out, the optional composite rollers don’t exactly come cheap. New Corvette Z06 customers are offered two carbon fiber wheel sets, including RPO code ROY, specifically the 20-inch front, 21-inch rear Carbon Flash-painted carbon fiber wheels, and RPO code ROZ, specifically the 20-inch front, 21-inch rear visible carbon fiber wheels. Pricing for the 20-inch front, 21-inch rear Carbon Flash-painted carbon fiber wheels (RPO code ROY) is set at $9,995, while pricing for the 20-inch front, 21-inch rear visible carbon fiber wheels (RPO code) is set at $11,995.
However, opting for either of the 2023 Corvette Z06 carbon fiber wheels also requires opting into the Z07 Performance Package, which in turn requires selection of one of the Carbon Aero packages. The ROY carbon wheels are only available in conjunction with the Carbon Aero, visible carbon fiber package (RPO code T0G), while the ROZ carbon wheels are only available in conjunction with the Carbon Aero, carbon fiber, Carbon Flash-painted package (RPO code T0F).
Add it all up, and it takes a pretty penny to get the 2023 Corvette Z06 with either one of the factory carbon fiber wheel options. For reference, the Z07 Performance Package is $8,995, while the base-model 2023 Corvette Z06 1LZ Coupe is priced at $106,395, as GM Authority covered previously.
It also bears mentioning that, for now at least, 2023 Corvette Z06 production is heavily constrained at just 10 percent of accepted orders, per previous GM Authority coverage. Add in heavy constraints for the two Carbon Aero packages as well, and the odds of actually getting a new Z06 with the factory carbon wheels are chancy at best.
As a reminder, the 2023 Corvette Z06 features the naturally aspirated 5.5L V8 LT6 gasoline engine for motivation, while under the skin is the GM Y2 platform. Production takes place at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky.
