just so you know,...... those are replica wheels not OEM, I can't speak for the quality but the casting on these looks a bit rough from the photos

Just ZL1 *style* wheels, not replicas.
AND, the fronts require a spacer to clear the Brembos.

Lose/Lose. No thanks...

ok just wanted to be sure you knew, I'd do a little research on the manufacturer before buying and like other posts here state, the offsets need to be correct

They are replicas, not OEM. They are cast aluminum and not forged, which means they probably weigh alot and the build quality won't be as good.

for 799 they don't look bad... Sure they aren't OEM, but i bet a single ZL1 wheel costs nearly that much through GM.

I'd be curious about the weight....and I'm not sure what they were thinking putting out a wheel that doesn't fit the SS without a spacer.

Otherwise, they are probably pretty decent wheels and they look fine to me.

What i REALLY want to see is the standard ZL1 wheels in a polished finish.

Yes they will fit on the SS. The wheels are about $950 EACH from your dealer.

Id buy them if

They didnt need a spacer to fit the brembos

They offered it in the freaking factory finish, machined/silver!

I only see black or chrome all over the place.

I saw these wheels on ebay weeks ago.

They are ZL1 "style" wheels and only 8" and 9" wide (like SS wheels).
