Please let them come in a nice high shine polished!! (yes, by now your probably tired of me requesting polished lol)

Thanks so much Doug.

So I will be the first to ask this. Do you think it will be May before we even see an actual picture of a rim, or can we maybe expect some shots sooner?

Below are renderings of our finalized design. Wheels will be available in May.

Sizes:20x9 ET +30, 20x10 ET +23, +35 and 20x11 ET +43

Finishes: Chrome, Gloss & Satin Black, Black Machine Face and Polished (probably)
I can't tell the difference between the original rendering and finalized rendering. I appreciate the time and effort into the new wheel but I'm sorry-it's not for me.

3 questions
any side views to show concavity or its deep dishness?(i think that's why everybody likes the zl1 wheel because of this)
is the price still the same?
are you going to make 22's?

Doug can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think he has made it clear that they will retain the same concave-ness of the originals.

I know its really early to tell, but do you know the weight of each wheel, and will these rims be cast or forged?

i think they are cast wheels(this keeps cost down). forged wheels will be expensive. plus there no such thing as a "cheap forged rim"

In the thread with the original replica wheels (before they got shut down by GM) Doug stated that the 10" wide wheel was only 1 or 2 lbs heavier than OEM. If that is true then these wheels should be about the same. That is pretty cool b/c that should mean they area no heavier, or lighter than the stock 20" RS/SS wheels.
