Chrome wheels on nation wide backorder

I had a warranty issue with one of my wheels, the dealer looked at it last week and said they would replace it and they thought it would be there by Wednesday (today)

When I called today the parts guy said it is on national backorder, has anyone had a similar problem. They told me that either GM is changing venders or they could have discover a problem with the wheels.

Someone posted a few days ago that the rest of the '13's will be getting the old '10-'12 wheels, not the '13 wheels. Don't remember what the exact reason was though. (Don't know about the ZL1's)

I hope not. I like the distinct look of the ZL1 and would hate to see a bunch of wannabe lookalikes

The parts guy made it sound like it was a fairly normal occurrence, his best guess was they were changing venders.

Aren't the same basic front wheels used on the 1LE? If so, it could just be the supplier is having problems. I would think GM is probably more concerned in keeping their production line supplied. If there was truly a supplier issue, the. The wheels would be on constraint.

I have had a set of four to mount my winter tires on order since August. I finally had to mount them on my original rims, but I don't want to play that game twince a year.

Pretty sure the OP meant polished as no Camaro comes with chrome wheels.

You are correct, he must mean the bright/polished 5 spoke option.

I ordered the optional bright 5 spoke wheels on my 2013 vert.
My car build status has been at 1100 since 7/31/2012, so maybe
the wheel unavailablity is a possible reason for the delay.

Probably not a lot of folks ordering them, unless theirs were damaged or for a new car. Check with Becky in the constraint thread. If there is a shortage they will normally be constrained.

It might be easier to get the black wheels if you want those. They have to make the black wheels for SS 1le's as well. So they probably make more of those.

I wish the ZL1 fascia was not interchangable/compatible with other models.

Most of these wheels are made in China, so GM may have some issues with them coming from overseas.
