They look good but I'm still holding out for a design that's a replica of the other wheels.

Solid colors look good, not feeling the 2-tone but maybe its just me. And I would think the straight spokes would be a stronger design or could achieve the same strength at a lighter weight over the angled stock design.

Hard to tell from the drawings if they still have the deep concave. I think they do and I assume they will still be extremely similar to the ZL1 wheel. Not to mention, the price on these will be much less than other options. Keep up the great work.

Would consider if they had the deep concave affect! It's the ZL1 stance I'm after

That's as close as you guys will get to a ZL1 replica wheel in my opinion. Otherwise the black suburbans will be showing up at their doorstep. If you what the ZL1 look you gonna have to buy from GM unfortunately.

At this point yes I would like to see whqt LG is going with it's wheels I have a feeling that it's going to be sort of the same changes as these to make GM happy.

I would like to know what kind of time frame they are looking to bring these to the market and have ready to sell.

This....

LG has already made it known that they have had to make mold changes... so I would expect something very similar from them as well. Imo these look great and just remember these are drawings... wait for the real mccoy and I bet it will change alot of minds

I thought I read some where that the 10-spoke wheels were basically the 5-spoke wheels but with some parts taken out. Not a great photoshop but what do you guys think about something like this:

Interesting. Not a bad idea, it is technically different than both wheels but follows the same "look".

I like the design and would still purchases these (at least in the Polished finish I would) assuming the offsets still give the wheel a nice concave look. Without the concave, the design is ruined. The black/machined leaves a little to be desired though in my mind.

I'm no wheel designer, but if I had to make any suggestion, it would be to widen (by just a bit...not a lot) the bottoms of each spoke...similar to what I have very crudely sketched out here. Anyone out there agree?

I can see that in your design, the raised part of the wheel is between each spoke, while the raised part of the OEM goes from one spoke to one spoke of the next pair...if that makes sense lol. So hopefully, doing what I have suggested above would still be OK without infringing on patent limits.

But I say good work guys! So happy to see you guys working hard to get us these.

I agree, that these wheels with the center removed from each spoke would also be great...maybe a tad better with each set of spokes moved apart just slightly...nothing big.
