Replica ZL1 rims quality?

Are the ZL1 rims that Phastek performance sell worth anything? I am thinking about getting some but i dont want them to crack and break when i hit speed bumps, burnout, or drift.

Buy the OEM forged ones if you want to go that route.

Because they are Forged. It's cost more to manufacture them.

I made no mention of my set. He asked a question and I gave him an honest and informative answer. If I was trying to push mine I would have already sold them for the $3000 offers I have received.
And the ZR28 wheels from LG or better than the Repos but they are also not Forged.

I was wondering if anyone continued using their stock SS tires? Because I was wanting to get some but the offset and dimensions are so confusing. Cause I would probably want 20x9 in front and 20x10 in rear from what I'm understanding. Would that fit on my current tire? What offset should I get?!
So confused..

8inch front SS wheels have +35mm offset
9inch rear SS wheels have a +40mm offset

10inch front ZL1/1LE wheels have a +23 offset
11inch rear ZL1/1LE weels have a +43 offset

OEM SS fronts are 245- suggested rim width 7.5 to 9 according to tirerack
OEM SS rears are 275- suggested rim width 9 to 11 according to tirerack

Ok... I'm still confused.. I hate to be an idiot, but can someone tell me which of these will fit the SS tires?
http://www.phastekperformance.com/20...show=30&page=1
I want the biggest size rim that will fit in the tire. I doubt it but those tires wouldn't fit the factory ZL1 size rims would they...?

Did you try calling Phastek or whichever Company you are wanting to go with? They should be able to answer all your questions.
That way if it's bad info it's on them and not you.

I wasn't being rude, lol. I'm serious, tell them what you have and what you want and they should be able to give you what you need.
In the end if one of us give you bad advice it's your problem. If the company you purchase from gives you bad advice it's their problem.
