Two Great Tastes in One

HRE Wheels and Ringbrothers have teamed up on a limited-edition series of high-performance Corvette wheels. The first to roll off the production line is the RB1 (shown), which utilizes HRE’s proven Monoblok technology in a contemporary, asymmetrical theme. The RB2, meanwhile, is a forged, three-piece wheel with a chiseled, five-spoke design that conceals stainless-steel ARP hardware. Both models are offered in 18- to 21-inch diameters and 8- to 13-inch widths. Custom bolt patterns and centerlock hubs are available.

Bright is Right

Philips’ new line of X-tremeVision LED Replacement Bulbs give ’89-’12 Corvette owners the ability to add more style and increased illumination to their vehicles’ interiors and exteriors. These direct-fit replacements deliver high-power LED illumination in two light-color temperatures: 4,000K, for an effect much closer to daylight than a traditional incandescent interior bulb; and 6,000K, which delivers the bright-white look of Xenon HID, yet consumes 1⁄13 the energy.
