Does anybody have a part number for the optional GM wheels shown below? I thought someone had posted it on the board a while back but I couldn't find it.

I would also like to see some better pictures if anybody has them.

ctsvwannabe,
Pics would be awsome! Also, what did you think of them in person?

I have the photos (low res) but don't know how to attach them to this post. Help? I'm still undecided regarding purchasing to replace the stock wheels because of the sunk cost. Called the dealer where I saw these wheels and asked for part number and cost. I don't believe that they new what I was asking for as the part number was way different than that posted earlier in this thread and quoted price was a $1000 bucks a piece! I guess I will check out the wheels at gmpartsdirect. Can anybody verify that the wheels listed at gmpartsdirect are really the optional wheels?

Polished aluminum. Additional research indicates that the wheels advertised on gmpartsdirect.com are the standard wheels (RPO P32). The optional wheels may really be 1000 bucks a piece. Anybody else have any information/ideas?

I love the design but I don't like them in polished aluminum. I would love to see them powder coated black or maybe even just painted the same color as the stock rims.

P/N - 17800210 is a set of 4, 7 dual spoke polished aluminum wheels. This is in fact the correct part number for the "upgrade" wheel package. The cost through GMPD is $356.40. That makes a set of 4 - $1,425.60. With shipping from GMPD it's $10,842.36 cents. :cookoo: I'm sure you can do better at your local dealer.

The question that bares asking is why? If you're going to upgrade your wheels, why not go with one of the aftermarket companies and get a wider wheel?
