Are the Chrome wheels worth $2000 MORE, than the silver painted ones?

I am new to the board, and getting my list so I can place an order tomorrow.... (hoping to find a dealer) But $2000 for Chrome wheels seems really expensive. I dont want to be cheap here, but cant you just get the silver wheels and pay someone around $600 or less to dip them? It looks like the same design. What do you guys think.

Welcome! I don't know enough about dipping to give you advice there but I would say it's worth the $2,000. If you're going to spend the money for a Corvette them you might as well make it how you want it.

Can not speak to value, but per my memory, the chrome wheels are at times on constraint, particularly at the beginning of production. A caution to keep in mind.

I had my 10 spoke black wheels from the ZL1 chromed dipped and that cost $1300 and took 30 days to get completed. I opted to get the chrome wheels on the vette for the extra $2K.
