Thats an awsome deal. Some people are paying over $3K for just wheels. Thats a steal.

I kept re-newing the add, and had received numerous calls about people wanting to buy my silver 5 spoke wheels and tires for cheap. Bullshit, I know!! Finally, just the other day, I received a call from a guy that worked at a Les Schwab store in Sacramento (Thanks Carlos!). He told me a guy had bought a new ZL1, drove it around for 500 miles, then wanted a custom set of wheels and tires. They ordered him a set of custom 22" front and 24" rear, and bought his factory black 10 spoke wheels/tires and applied the balance towards his new wheels/tires. Once he told me the price was $2100.00 for the set of wheels and tires, I asked if he would hold them until I could get there and pick them up. 2 days later they were on my car. Les Schwab removed the TPMS sensors for the other wheels, so I had my local buddy at Americas Tire (Thanks Justin!!) fix me up with 4 new TPMS's for $169.00, and he installed them. Not bad for a total investment of $2269.00!! I wish they were in perfect condition like my silver 5 spokes, as they do have a few light scratches here and there, but for the price, they look GREAT!! Craigslist RULES!!!

Anybody looking for a set of silver 5 spokes and tires with only 380 miles on them, they are for sale!!
you better save the tires and just sell the rims cuz youre gonna need them in less than a year.

I don't need to sell my 5 spokes, as they are doing just fine sitting in the corner of the shop. They only have 380 miles on them, so they are like new. For as often as I drive the car, the tires will last me for years. Plus, once I get my Welds for drag racing, then the factory tires will last me even longer!!

Its interesting to me that people will spend over $60K for a car, then want to be cheap with the modifications they do to the car. I know everybody loves a great deal, but sacrificing originality and function on a car that was built to be a "SUPER" car is disappointing. Your insulting the car by putting cheap wheels on it. Put cheap wheels on a Honda, not a ZL1.
I didn't want to spend $5K on wheels and tires, and I am sure nobody else wants to do it either. I even contemplated buying the cast, knock off wheels for my car, but I would rather have original forged wheels for my factory race car, so I held out, and got real lucky.
Just food for thought.....

Well you should buy michelin ss tires. Why are you using the cheap goodyears on your car. Waste of a zl1

Those zl1 wheels are kinda heavy buy some forgelines geez.

The zl1 wheels are only like 2 pounds lighter then the repro s.

Sorry but if you think that more expensive always means better you are dumb.

Hey chicagobulls,

If I wanted to take my car to the race track every chance I could, then swapping out the Goodyears for Michelins might be a option. But I am not a Professional race car driver, so the Goodyears will suite me just fine. GM spent millions of dollars on research and development for the ZL1, and I am sure a good part of that went to suspension and tires.

My main point was to ask people why they spend so much money on a limited production car to put imitation wheels on it. Forgeline wheels are a great choice, and they look awesome as well, but that is the great thing about individuality, everybody likes different things. Liking different things is one thing, but disgracing an American classic is pathetic.

And as for more expensive meaning it is always better, typically this holds true. I doubt you will ever find a Ferrari selling for less than a Yugo. You get what you pay for. If you want some work done to your ZL1, are you gonna take it to the most reputable shop around that is well know, and has a great reputation, or Joe's Auto Shop??
