ZR1 style wheels?

So I had all but decided on a set of 20" TSW Nurburgrings for my ride, but now I'm not so sure. I'm a huge fan of the OEM ZR1 wheels, but I know they won't fit; has anyone found a good replica/knock off that will?

Thanks in advance!

I know a member here has a set of custom Venaci's on his ride, but it seems that they have gone under... I can't find anything about them, but regardless here is a picture of his ride for reference:

The TSW Max is what I've found so far... it's CLOSE, but a ten spoke instead of 9... still not a bad looking wheel.

No, I meant USW. Not TSW. USW forged made a replica one for Mindz's car but I have never seen another set. Not sure if it was a one off or what. You could talk to them and they might make you a set but it's probably not going to be cheap. Here's the wheel I'm talking about:

USW only made 2 sets of those wheels. I don't know of anyone else that makes a non-forged wheel like them. Mine are still for sale, but it seems that no one wants to pay for forged wheels that doesn't already have them.

The rims are GORGEOUS man, your car is too, I love the color and just your car overall, very impressed.

Unfortunately your price is out of my budget, ever though it's already A KILLER DEAL! I'm getting 20" F14's in June to complete the Black on Black look for my 2LS

These wheels do look nice, good luck on your search.
