Venaci wheels 9 spoke Concave 20" 1 Piece forged

Here are some pictures of my new Venaci wheels 9 spoke Concave 20" 1 piece forged wheels. These are prototype wheels made just for my camaro. But Venaci will sell these at one point. These are SUPER LIGHT! These can be made in 19,20,21,22 inch wheels, in concave or non concave and just about any color you want.

Here are the some specs of these wheels:

Made by: Venaci
One piece wheels
9 Spoke protoype
Concave
Fronts: 20x9.5 Tires: stock 245/40/20 Weight: 20.1 pounds (no tire)
Rears: 20x10.5 Tires: Stock 275/40/20 Weight: 21.0 pounds (no tire)
Color: brushed aluminum












These are so light!



We are planning on using different tires later, but for now I used stock tires and it works ok.

These are very light and I can feel the weight difference! They are great! The offset are great as well. No rubbing what so ever.

Thanks for looking!

You mean the gills right and not the side skirts? I got the stickers from Xmicro_SS here on the board.

They do look similar but different...Notice how the holes are drilled out between the lugs..(saves weight) And where-ever metal can be removed from without affecting integrity has been done. =]..
I also do know for a fact that these wheels are a lot cheaper than the $$$$$ Pur Forged wheels :P

As long as the price is right, and as long as I can get them in a somewhat reasonable amount of time.

Nice looking wheel.

Cheap wheel shoppers are probably dreaming about price here, but I'd estimate these would be well over $3K a set since they are 1-piece forged wheels and those blank forgings aren't cheap to begin with. I'll take a guess: Over $3500/set.

These do look good. Though very similar pattern to a dozen other mesh. Hard to believe so many wheels with this pattern can sell?? Would like to see in black.
