Since a lot of folks are still unsure of the difference between Satin Graphite and Carbon Flash Metallic wheels on the ZR1, I thought I'd take some closeup photos for comparison.

The first three photos are Satin Graphite, followed by the last three which are Carbon Flash Metallic.

Satin Graphite is basically a black matte finish, where as the Carbon Flash Metallic, is a black metallic, glossy finish - just like the carbon flash metallic finish on some C7 Corvette body parts.

Hope these help!

Carbon Flash :nono

If I was to buy one, I'd want it to look like this....

I ended up with Corvette Racing Yellow, but the wheels...I like the Satin Graphite color but hate the design. In fact, I ordered a set of Forgeline GS1Rs and will put my Satin Graphite ZR1 wheels up for sale.
