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.

All of out wheels are cast either low, counter or high pressure depending upon the wheel design. I will not have any weights until I have a sample in hand. I think we will be close to the OE ZL1 weight.

are you going to make 22's?

The angle of the spoke from the outer lip to the center will be the same as the ZL1 wheel.

I will post pricing as soon as all the engineering is complete.

As for 22" we have not decided yet. A big factor will be how this design is accepted by Camaro owners.

The price may change, but if you've kept up with the price of the LG ZL1-like wheels they are making, these were a good 400 - 600 or so cheaper (if my memory is correct on Factory Reproductions' original design), so hopefully that will remain the case.

Any plans to offer a non-branded ZR28 option?

That is the LG wheel, not the Factory Reproductions one.

Perhaps I was unclear. I realize the design has changed. What I am wondering is whether or not it will still have the ZR28 name on the wheel?

This wheel does not have ZR28 on it. You are thinking of the LG Motorsports wheel.

Both companies are making a similar looking wheel, these ones are just going to be way less expensive...AND not have any lettering cast into them.

You were very clear, but the wheel your looking for is the LG Motorsports Wheel. These are being made by Factory Reproductions.

I want!!!!! LG is taking too long as well so if I going to wait, I might as well wait until May and pay considerable less for what amounts to the same wheel.
