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.

I wouldn't race on them.
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
