Yes the price and these are powdercoated and are painted all over.


seriously though unless the car was parked and you were on foot then you wouldnt tell. Driving you shouldn't know.

Now think about this, 90% of the population does not know what the zl1 wheels look like.

Now of that 10% maybe 10% of them know what the exact look of them is and know which spoke Bends which way.

That's 1% of the population that can tell the difference standing next to your car stationary.

Driving your car 0% chance since your wheels will be spinning.

Imo as long as the wheels look as good as the real ones I could care less how close they look but noone is going to say hey those are fake.

The first thing when I see a camaro is admire it not look for replica wheels.

Honestly I've looked at these and the ZL1 ones side by side in pictures and I actually prefer the replica wheels !

I wanted them in chrome or polished anyway so that makes it replica or nothing, but I think the design of the spoke is better in these........never would have thought I'd say that

Wouldn't Replica indicate, Exact? So wouldn't these be ZL1 Inspired Wheels?

I like these wheels better then the OEM's as well.. Factory Reproductions hit a home run with them.

The best part about these wheels? They AREN'T exactly the same. Do I want the ZL1 wheels? Yeah. But everyone's got them. Not everyone has THESE wheels... And when I pull up to my three buddies...all who have the ZL1 wheels, MINE will be different.

That's exactly the point I wanted to make
If one goes to the American tires ( I think ) website , they say , Camaro Replicas wheels , and they look darn like it
Not on this ones , but that's okay , or GM would have cut the Lawyers loose by now .
