Putting the text on them is a deal breaker for me. I don't want to promote your race car on wheels on my car.

If it said LG or LG Motorsports I'd be fine with it. But a made up play on Z28 on a series of cars where no Z28 is available is silly. Are you that dense to call people stupid for a differing opinion of taste? Apparently.

It'll go great with some ZL2 badges I'll get made up to go on my 1LB package Camaro.

Guys,

Here's an article from 1998 that talks about the LG ZR28.....I doubt that the LG guys woulda been thinking about a play on the Z28 name and brand from that long ago for this line of Camaros personally.

http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/...rmance_trends/

It's LG's brand....you know their hood is also the LG ZR28 Hood too right?

Hopefully folks can understand why LG and other companies like them actually brand their product and name.

I think it's smart and a cool idea!
Ivan

it says ZR28 and that is the name of the wheel they want to call it just like every other wheel manufacturer, 90% of wheels have a stamp of choice on the wheel. Either buy them or dont, but asking them to remake a wheel casting is a bit much.

Uh oh it's the opinion police. Customer feedback can be taken or not, it doesn't make people stupid when they disagree with you on a matter of taste. Other companies are working on these as well and they won't have it on there. They don't have to recast anything, someone else will do it for them while helping to keep prices down through competition.

And I don't see anyone stating LG didn't come up with the acronym or that they have a history with it.

For me I'd rather not have ZR28 on the wheels.

I think these wheels look like great reproductions, and applaud LG for bringing a affordable reproduction to the market, fairly quickly too.

As interested in these as I am, I am curious if these will actually be successfully manufactured. I was a part of the original LS7 replica wheel group buy which was blown up by GM. I was one of about 70 members that had a 50% deposit for several months that ultimately did not get made.

I do love these wheels and will buy a set if they get made, but have concerns.

My fingers are crossed...

Awesome. The ZR28 wouldn't bother me also I'd prefer without. But I understand the reasoning for having it on here. Not a deal breaker for me
