Monaro VZ's are my favorite, I just upgraded to stock 18's yesterday, and am very happy. (Since I could not justify $1500 for Monaro VZ's)

Anything OTHER THAN black. Even though they are overplayed the AZA Z-1's and CCW's look fantastic on QSM.

I am in the same boat but I just can't decide on what I want. But I am leaning towards the 19" ROH Fury's in Black Ice at least I don't have to monkey with the damn fenders.

I like my OEM C5 thin spokes! Pictures show Vette logos, but I have plain centercaps now. Spacers required to mount them to the GOAT; 12mm front and 2-3mm rear.

I like the VZ's but shipping from Aussie was crazy! I only have $300 in mine. That's why I bought them, plus they are much lighter than the stock 17's. If my car came with 18's I would of kept them and been happy. Maybe a little powder coating action!

Not the best angle, but I like my 19" Drift R's. I do like the VZ's also.
