How about some chrome SS wheels in ZL1 sizes and offsets??? I would buy! Factory Reproductions already makes the 20x8/9 and 22x9/10.

20x10 +35
20x11 +43

Great idea if I wanted to buy in quantity and go into business for myself! I think I'll just wait until a manufacturer comes up with a wheel set I like.

Doug, can you post the actual ZL1 fitments? I thought they were 20x10 +23 and 20x11 +43?

The actual OE offsets are 20x10 +23 and 20x11 +43 but Doug's original post also offered a 20x10 +35 rear wheel in conjunction with a 20x9 front. I know this as I sent an e-mail to ask if the 20x10 +35 offset would clear the Brembos on the front because I didn't like how the OE +23 offset made the front wheels stick out past the fender lip.

Cool thanks. I like how they stick out and I may just order a set of Forgestars with this offset.

Any doubts view the manufacturers stamp on the back of these polished ZL1 wheels.

Yes! That is awesome. Finally someone has the facts! I'm so annoyed by most wheel vendors treating these numbers like they are NASA secrets.

I am not sure if the +35 20x10 will clear Brembo calipers on the front. The +35 offset was intended for the rear with a 20x9 front.

I will have to overlay the +35 CAD drawing against the Brembo caliper to determine if there are clearance issues. I will post the results. I will take a few days.

If you are referring to Factory Reproductions I am confused. I posted all wheel specs. If you need any additional info just give me a call. We have no secrets.

Doug I was in no way referring to you. You are the first wheel vendor that I know of on this site that is willing to give out offsets. For whatever reason other wheel vendors on this site treat these numbers like only they can know them. Which is why I would never give one of those venders my money. Thank you for sharing as much info as you can and I'm excited to see what you guy come up with. Im looking for a wheel that fits like the ZL1 wheel. I like the really aggressive offset the factory offered.

Agreed.

I'm hoping I can run the 20x9s all around that you guys will be offering. According to a calculator I've used, it looks like it should move the fronts out around 15 - 18mm and the rears 8 - 10mm using the offsets posted in the original thread that got removed. Thats if my memory is correct.

By the way, not sure how much longer before you guys finish up the tweaks to the mold design, but LG motorsports is also making a change to their mold and I believe are going to patent the design (at least I think I remember reading that?). Would hate for you guys to get out of the gate after them, and then have to change them AGAIN!!
