I have to work nights this weekend and I'm not looking forward to it. I will look forward to seeing pics posted of the LG "ZL1" rims

Hi Folks,

Just so you know, GM does have a design patent on their wheel designs. OUR ZR28 wheel is not a copy of anyone's wheels.

In fact, our molds are being fixed as we speak to insure that there is no infringment on anyone's patent.
We also plan on filing our own Design patent when we are finished.
If you don't like our finished product, we will gladly return any deposits.

Now some of you might be able to see why the cost of any product is what it is. Legal fees, Mold and tooling changes and many other factors come into play.

Hang in there and we will see this to the conclusion.

Good things come to those who wait.

Thanks

Lou Gigliotti

What I don't understand is there are ZL1 copies of the 5 spoke all over for sale, and they say ZL1??? So why would these be a problem?

Um...

1) they did chime in..
2) good luck with "other company"
3) maybe they were forced a change for legal reasons...
4) he said u can have a refund if u want it

agreed, have my deposit down and would like to know soon. Rather not wait longer and have 500 up in the air and than 2 months down the road wind up not liking the wheels... when i could have used the money earlier. but i will give it another few weeks. i dont see the early January thing still being met but we shall see. Also, will the price be reduced if it doesn't meet the expected date plus the changes?

If you need the money, they will refund you. I got my money back after a week or so because I ran into some medical bills. Seeing im in Michigan, I wont be driving my car again until april or so. If their wheel is as nice as they say it will be, I will purchase them then.

Always right here if anybody ever needs us for anything.

I know that if anything is going te be changed, it will most likely be stuff that you can't see.

Wishing that we (Southwest Speed) had more to help y'all out with and to go on, but we're standing by to standby as well. And understanding y'alls questions completely.

I'm like y'all when it comes to wondering how folks can use the moniker on their ebay auctions. Matter of time for them I reckon.

More to come as I get it!
Ivan
