Look at the label inside the glovebox. It should say Z85 or ZQ8.

ZQ8s have 17" for '04 to '07 & 18" on '07. If you have 15" wheels you have a Z85.

the rims are 15 inches and you're riding sky high...that's how he can tell, plus you have the chrome bar across the front which is not available on the zq8
