SEMA 2012: Cray Wheels’ New ‘Vette Hoops – Hawk Model

Sure, installing suspension parts, exhuast and intake can surely make your current Corvette an even faster ride. However, have you thought about what the advantages of an aftermarket set of wheels and tires could do, both aesthetically and performance wise? Not only will your Corvette handle and perform better but adding a set of new Cray Corvette wheels with tires can completely transform the look of your Corvette with a modern street-appeal.

We had the opportunity to catch up with Cray Wheels at this year’s SEMA 2012 show where we were given the tour of its new line of Hawk Model wheels. The Hawk Cray Corvette wheels are offered in four different finishes including, Chrome, Gloss Black with a Chrome Stainless Cut Lip, Matte Black and Silver with a Machine Face and Chrome Stainless lip. Of course, these custom Corvette wheels are exclusively designed for the C4, C5, C6, Z05 and Z06. Cray offers this style in 18 inch through 20 inch. Select the perfect high performance staggered wheel for your Corvette.

Cray Wheels didn’t stop there with their Hawk line for Corvettes. Touching on the Corvette owners need for utilizing the well-known and appreciated factory checkered flag wheel cap, Cray designed these wheels to accept that cap.

What’s more, the Hawk line also accepts the Corvette tire pressure monitoring systems.

Cray Corvette wheels are also hub centric, which ensures that they fit precisely over the center flange of the brake rotor so that the wheel is concentric with the wheel bearings for a truer, better balanced wheel/tire assembly and a smoother ride.

The Hawk line of wheel even has it’s own dedicated website with a Corvette configurator program. Yes, if you’re on the rocks as to which size or finish to decide, the configurator will allow the user to preview which wheel suits their Corvette best!
