Thanks so much for this update Doug. Really appreciate it.

I hate to even ask because I'm sure you've dealt with enough wants over these rims but if its possible to consider a nice looking polished option I think that would be a good seller.

Looking forward to more!

We intend to offer a polished/clearcoat finish. Things could change but that's the plan.

The replica place here in Houston can't keep them in stock they sell so good.

We are looking into a 18 drag wheel. What width are you interested in?

Man, this sucks. I was looking forward to throwing a set on my car this coming year. I hope you can make some that look close to the real deal without GM busting your balls!
