Remanufactured wheels from Transwheel?

Anyone know anything about them? Insurance wants to give me a reman wheel made by transwheel. Is it going to be OEM equivalent/have the same life as an OEM wheel?

I dont know how you reman a wheel except to sand down a damaged wheel below the damage and refinish it? Just thought I'd ask.

I also swapped the body for a C2 Z28. (In short I traded it for three cars, a Corvette Z06r, a C2 Camaro Z28, and a Cadillac CTS Summer Performance package 3.6L DI with Aisin 6spd.)

i dont know anything about them... but if your insurance wants you to do this then you have put in a claim... i would accept a substitute for oem... why take the chance...

if it one of these remanufactured wheels or nothing i would look at the for sale section on this site... there are always sets of stock oem wheel there.. good luck

Is there a cash alternative? You can pick up used RS wheels for $800-$1000.

Cash they want to give me $300 - the price of the reman wheel. Can I demand a OEM wheel?

I was not at fault... I wasn't even in the car.

+1

Or, as someone else said, take cash and buy a used OEM wheel. You might be able to pick one up in the members for sale area here. (I just sold my stock wheels last week that way.)

If it's an oem wheel with no issues there really isn't a problem. Just make sure it's correct, and in as good of shape or better than the other 3 on your car. On another note...
Depending on Ohio law, mention diminished value, your car now has a carfax history and you'll take a hit on it when you sell. Insurance may owe you the difference.
