I talked to Maureen at Rodgers Chevy and she said MAJOR BACK ORDER and only way to get them is if you have a damaged one.........Called 2 local dealers and they show back ordered too!

Ok........ They are probably for actual ZL1's who have damaged/bent rims, etc. Not justifying the "backorder," but I understand why they do it.

Supply and demand. Hold up the supply, create the demand! Lets be real these aren't 3 piece Lowenhart wheels.

And there are hundreds of calories in a Big Mac. So what?

GM service parts must maintain a certain inventory of parts (which can vary) for warranty repairs. Not sure if this is a regulatory thing or if it's a voluntary thing. If inventory drops below a certain % of the safe margin, holds are placed on retail sales. This can be due to a number of reasons, but mainly it's when demand outstrips supply. It's usually temporary though.

This happens more frequently in just in time (JIT) production which many companies are adopting more and more.

GM would love to sell you those parts in the warehouse. That's $$$ and a good profit margin. But gone are the days where GM buys trainloads of parts and puts them in warehouses where they sit for years. Inventory costs money, and reducing such is a cost-cutting staple for lots of businesses.

I just wish GM would let these rims sell. I have wanted these rims even before getting my car. Unfortunately, due to the low number of ZL1s available, i had to take my car with those ugly 5 spokes! i wonder when/if they will ever be off of backorder???

I see the same thing on mine. Brought it to the dealer, going to need to bring it up again. I have been waiting to see a set of new ones in the area to compare mine too.

I talked to Maureen at Rodgers also today and she told me the same thing, that GM won't release the wheels w/o pics of a damaged wheel and VIN. It sounds like to me from talking to her that she has been pushing for them to release them because a lot of us WANT them. I'm keeping my fingers crossed....come on GM!

This place has them at the lowest price I've found and I had an order in for them, until the new ZR28 came out, so I canceled. Check out the link.
