I've seen them come up for sale very rarely. Good luck with your search.

The first time I ever saw them was on a Sky, never seen them on a Solstice. I've always thought they were kind of overblown.

I've seen them on both. Not a fan but don't think they're ugly.

@DaveOC, just watch Death at a Funeral and you'll see them on a Solstice...

I know someone who has them on a Redline. Just too much bling. They look clunky! They look heavy.

I just don't like them, never have liked them.

Weren't they on the Redline SE models. I think there are two different wheels, one for the Solstice and one for the Sky, but can't remember for sure. I know someone was trying to sell me a set of them, and I looked them up. Was never interested in the things. I like the stock wheels better than anything I have ever seen on a Sky or Solstice. Have looked for 5 years for something lighter, but not the squished spider look for me. I agree with Dave, way too much of a bad thing. lol

The first one was the split spoke Q9Y Saturn Sky wheels which were on the SE models, and the other one is the Solstice split spoke Q9Y wheel which was on the Street Edition model.

Because u do not want to get down and clean them...it is the getting up that gives u a problem....always fighting gravity.

I put a pillow under my tush...but moving from one wheel to another...it is a labor of love

Found this link. I saw some "snowflake" wheels recently on ebay that were inexpensive. The Sky SE wheels are totally different.
