Question GOOD DEAL ???

Alright all you Camaro folks, I am looking to get a new set of rims for my 2011 SS and I like shiney chrome rims. I have friend here in town that owns a custom rim -tire and auto shop and owns a Corvette, he showed me a set of American Racing forged alloy GT5 rims for a Corvette,20x8.5 and 20x10.0 with lugnuts included for 249 each. They look awesome and closely resemble the stock ones, except very shiney, I like. What I need to know is this a good price for the rims as this is the only set he has left. Thanks guys and gals..And will they fit my Camaro.

They are true forged, they are stamped on the rim lip.He said when American Racing was having financial problems he bought many sets for about 50 cents on the dollar and has the 1 set left, also said that I would be getting 4 for the price of what 1 would have cost, I just hope they fit.

Sounds too good to be true, IMO.

And it generally is.

But, I hope you lucked out!

I looked over the rims, they are forged aluminum, American Racing, and have stamped on the edge "forged alloy"..And they are light weight.
