With the exceptions of body shape and paint color, wheels are arguably the most important factor in establishing a car's personality. The right set can do wonders for the looks of even an average vehicle, or turn an attractively styled ride into a bona fide knockout.

Looking back at Corvette wheel designs, it's hard to believe that the first three generations' base models rode on stamped-steel rims. In fact, it wasn't until the car's 11th season that buyers had any wheel choices at all. The '64-'67 knock-off and knock-off-style wheels were a stunning complement to the C2 silhouette, setting a design standard that would endure for years to come.
