I wonder who is manufacturing these wheels for the Enclave. They have what appears to be 21" on the concept but we are stuck getting offered 19's. Obviously they are manufactured but they are not available to purchase (yet). Anyone know anything about these wheels?

I'm particularly looking for this exact wheel that was on the concept car.

It is the exact same design as the 19" 7 spoke design that we can now purchase.

Tony, do you have the brochure? Mine is not readily accessible, but I believe that a 20" style is also shown. I think it may be available as a dealer-installed option.

Centurion, Yeah, I saw those and they do look nice. They're a 6 spoke design. I do prefer the more agressive stance of the larger 7 spoke wheels pictures above.

They could be prototype wheels. I doubt they'd put wheels you can buy on a concept, it's just not usually done.

I don't find the six-spokes attractive myself. And the price is likely high.

In general, with wheels you want either five or seven spokes. An odd number of spokes looks more dynamic than an even number. But three spokes looks funny, and more than seven gets crowded and loses a sporty edge. It also helps if the spokes taper, as they do with the seven-spoke designs but not so much with the six.

Get any suitably elegant 5 or 7 spoke 21-inch wheels on the Enclave, and it'll look hot.

that would be your opinion. it all depends on the person and their tastes not everyone want to do or have exactly what everyone has. perhaps he would like something different. anyway, the ones he is speaking of are a 7 spoke rim. i saw the very same ones in the caddy dealer today and they look nice. imo
