PERSONALIZATION. Cray Wheels designs and manufactures high performance custom Corvette wheels exclusively for the Corvette owner. Cray Corvette Custom wheels - large diameters and very wide widths. Our wheels are made specifically for Corvettes and only for Corvettes. Corvette owner’s are renown for their drive to personalize their vehicles, so that no two ‘Vettes, it seems, could possibly be identical. Indeed, Chevrolet fuels this pursuit with a stupefying number of options and dealer-installed accessories.
Cray Corvette Aftermarket Wheels feeds this desire with several distinctive variants of their beguiling Scorpion, Manta and Hawk Corvette wheels, artistic statements that enable owners to achieve one-of-a-kind appearance
Cray wheels are designed specifically and exclusively for the Corvette and take their inspiration from the Corvette’s unique, sleek and aerodynamic pose. Thus, either Scorpion or Manta models in gloss black, in chrome or in hyper silver with a machined-cut lip, or the new Hawk model in matte black, gloss black with a chrome stainless lip or silver with a machine face and chrome stainless lip are the perfect complement to this iconic, purely American super car.
PERFORMANCE. As one moves up the performance curve, from the base Corvette Coupe and convertible to the 427, Z06 and top-of-the-line ZR1, increased performance is achieved, in part, through the heroic efforts of Corvette engineers to reduce weight. Cray Corvette Wheels are in sync with this weight reduction manifesto. The result is high-performance wheels that are a perfect match for Corvette’s relentless obsession with shaving weight wherever possible.
PRECISION. Cray offers the world’s widest range of once-piece, staggered Corvette specific wheel applications. Cray Aftermarket Corvette Wheels are precision engineered in every detail. Cray engineers take into account the staggered footprint common to most Corvettes. A staggered footprint means that the rear wheels and tires are slightly wider than the front, providing better traction and a more aggressive stance for the Corvette rims . Additionally, Cray engineers factor in the related concepts of wheel offset and backspace. Wheel offset means the wheel centerline is offset away from the axle, providing a wider stance. Backspace measures how far the wheel intrudes into the wheel well towards the axle, and is important to ensure that there is no interference with suspension trailing arms or other mechanical systems.
Cray Wheels for Corvettes are designed to accept the original equipment wheel center logo cap, and accommodate factory tire pressure monitoring systems. All Cray custom Corvette wheels are 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.
More Details on the PVD Chrome finish: P.V.D. (Physical Vapor Deposition) is a new technology that combines vacuum plating with powder coating as a direct replacement for traditional chrome.
The PVD chrome coating is a deposition process that provides a much more uniform deposit (up to six times greater than conventional acid bath chrome in some cases) with no toxic chemicals that must be properly disposed of or recycled.
The P.V.D. finish has been tested under the most stringent automotive industry standards by Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, and Toyota and exceeded the requirements of traditional chrome and many paint finishes even under the harshest of weather conditions of the East Coast.
The P.V.D. Process:
Application of the PVD finish consists of a three step process: First a primer paint is applied as a base coat; next, the wheel is placed into a Physical Vapor Deposition (P.V.D.) vacuum chamber where the process is applied. Multiple layers of metals are applied to create a mirror like finish with all the quality of traditional show chrome without the use of either hexavalent or trivalent chromium that pollute the environment; and, finally, a clear coat is applied to seal and protect the finish. Minor scratches can be removed with a clear coat safe polish, i.e., 3M Renewsit II. Use ONLY clear coat safe polishes and NEVER use chrome polish. Treat your wheel finish as you would the paint finish on your car.
