Nice, but I'd still likely take the FR wheels over those centennials. Its the way the ends of each spoke bends that kind of dings it for me, and doesn't seem to have the same amount of concave, but I could be wrong there.

So the short answer to your question is yes.
So no plans for 18's?

Those are very nice as well, I'd buy them if they made them with ZL1 offsets

The angle of the spokes (concave) will remain the same on the redesigned wheel.

The drop angle of the spoke from the outer to the center of the rim will remain the same.

Awesome I will be making this one of my future mods! I understand your design limitations due to GM patents, but I think you did a very good job keeping the "essence" of the design. I'm wondering if you put a set of these on a car and viewed them from a distance if you could really tell that much difference from the SSX/ZL1 wheels

Did I miss somewhere where you mentioned the price range for these? I know they aren't being produced yet but just trying to get an idea.

the focus of these wheels are not where they should be..either have the raised edges to the whole wheel or dont at all.. adding it to the rectangle shapes just makes everything look off.

Personally I think they look fine the way they are, that raised outer lip would look "off" IMO.

It does have a distinct look. But you going under the assumption that they could make those changes. Regardless of the original focus, factory reproductions may have had to design the wheel that way to please GM and their patent lawyers. Just because you wan the wheel that way doesn't me they can make it that way.

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?

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.
