Black/Chrome Composite Rims

I found this picture of these rims I really, really like. I'm getting a Victory Red SS/RS with black stripes so I think these would set it off nice:



The problem is...I have no idea what brand these rims are to check them out. That looks like a "G" on the centercap. Can anyone help? If not the exact brand does anyone know rims that look similar?

I'd also like to hear what you guys think of these and how they would look on the new camaro

I did a little more research. They're Gianna rims. I think they'd be worth their weight in chrome

Why? Do you think it would affect performance?

Do they come in a size big enough to fit around the Brembos.
The pic looks like 17" wheel.
the wheel probably needs to clear 17" internal diameter.

Those rims are horrible. Ugly as hell

Quote from the Camaro brochure "Use only GM-approved tire and wheel combinations." I'd listen to them.....

I think they look nice, but if its chrome i think something simple needs to happen. Just five fingers.. maybe with black face and a chrome lip.
