No, but you do have to purchase them separately. I think the black ones are $39 and that includes a locking set..

I really like these wheels, but I live in an are where the roads are very uneven and with a lot of pot holes so I am thinking how resistent are these rims against cracks etc. What do you think?

For the life of the wheel, FACTORY REPRODUCTIONS INC will replace or repair any wheel found defective in either materials or workmanship. This warranty applies to the original retail purchaser only. This warranty is limited to normal and intended road use only.

Out of Round Condition – 10 Days

FACTORY REPRODUCTIONS INC will repair or replace any wheel that, upon inspection by FACTORY REPRODUCTIONS INC or its authorized agent, is found to be out of round for a period of ten (10) days from date of original retail purchase. Out of round conditions caused by improper installation, accidents, wheel impact, racing or off-road use are specifically excluded.

Finish – Painted or Chrome 2 Years, Polished 60 Days

FACTORY REPRODUCTIONS INC warrants to the original retail purchaser the finish will be free from defects, blemishes and discoloration. Should the finish on a wheel, upon inspection by FACTORY REPRODUCTIONS INC be determined to be defective, FACTORY REPRODUCTIONS INC will repair or replace the wheel, at its sole discretion. This warranty excludes finish defects caused by accidents, wheel impact, racing or off road use, neglect, corrosion, inclement weather, chemicals and the use of caustic, acid or abrasive cleaners.

THIS WARRANTY IS VOID IF:

1. The wheel(s) have been damaged in transit.

7. Finish defects caused by negligence, corrosion, inclement weather (road salts etc.), chemicals or the improper use of caustic, acidic and abrasive cleaners.
8. Tires installed which are larger or smaller than the recommended size for the wheel rim width.
9. The original retail invoice or sales receipt is not available for verification or upon transfer of title of the product by the original retail purchaser.

FACTORY REPRODUCTIONS INC sole and exclusive obligation under this warranty shall be to repair or replace at our sole discretion, without charge, any product which, after examination by our company shows that said product has failed in normal use and service due to defects in material and or workmanship.

FACTORY REPRODUCTIONS INC will not be responsible for any damage or loss caused by delays, failure, or any consequential damage arising from any cause whatsoever, nor for labor, transportation, or any other charges incurred in the replacement of a defective product.

Thank you for your fast response!
I`m located overseas and as I stated the roads are very shitty. I see they have a warranty plan but beeing overseas don`t know how much covered I am.

Anyway...those are 2 things that put me in doubt(no 2 & 4)...if I hit a pot hole and the wheel cracks...that means wheel impact if I`m not mistaken...so bye bye wheel

It seems like the only thing they cover is if the rim cracks when it just is sitting there

When you drive the rim is impacting the ground at all times lol

So if the shipping company damages it during transit we are responsible to take care if it with them ?

This is very interesting, when I have 100 mph in a curve and I hit right behind the apex a little pothole that cracks the rim after that I end up in some trees or some bushes....road racing and impact on the ground...more important than if the manufacture covers the wheel is if the wheel resists impacting the road in some harsh conditions.

Nope. These will bolt right onto your 2LS. If I go the 20" route I am looking at running 20x9 on all four corners with probably the wider offset to get the wheels and tires out to the edge of the fender wells.

I don't understand.......

I guess this keeps costs down but I'd rather have a great wheel no warranty, rather than a bad wheel lifetime warranty.

First, the price on these wheels are so darn low, it's not that far fetched to be able to get a new one should something terribly happen.

With the shipping company, yes. The shipping company drops your wheels, the box is all jacked up, you check the wheels, you file a claim with the shipper. But, you'd better be on your game when they are delivered.

This is called racing...which the warranty specifically states it won't cover.

Any rim, and let's be real (and I'm not saying this in a disrespectful way), is probably going to crack as you go flying around a curve and hit a pothole. Why would a manufacturer warranty a rim that you were racing on and hit a pothole in? No one is going to warranty that.

I take accident reports as an officer and we had someone hit a pothole on a city street. The city, as it had repeated complaints over a three day period on that pot hole, ended up paying for the persons wheel that was cracked (and it was really cracked....sitting there with a flat tire on the side of the road). Insurance also comes into play with this.

But ultimately, why in the world....why in the world....would it be the wheel manufacturers fault that you hit a pothole???


If you get into an accident, would you go back to the manufacturer GM to have them replace the car? no.





Anything can happen to these wheels. Check them when they are shipped. If they are fine, then you are done. If not, contact them. Don't call three months later after you scratch your wheel trying to claim it was shipped that way. They are just trying to protect themselves from outrageous complaints.




All these warranty questions really shouldn't be a worry.

Totally agree with you on everything except the fact "But ultimately, why in the world....why in the world....would it be the wheel manufacturers fault that you hit a pothole???", I am just concerned with the structure of the wheel, for example I hit a couple of potholes with my oem rs wheel and nothing happenes, but if I hit the same potholes again and the wheels crack then I believe it is the the manufacturers fault he did not strenghten the wheels enough. My only curiosity is the strenght of the wheel, how it copes with potholes and some rough roads in comparison with the stock oem wheel. Sorry if I am buggy but when I am curios I tend to be annoying.
