Looking at the offset that must be a rim designed for the front (if this is a Camaro application).

How much do the rear rims weigh?
How about the paint, as it looks much better with the bits of black? LOL

The rears for this application ended up weighing in at 23.7 lbs. With the paint they gained a merely .6 each wheel. Luckily still making light.

So an ad without pricing is not an ad? And it seems that, other than IndPwr, most wheel vendors don't post prices anywhere and want each individual to 'pm for pricing'.

Perhaps you should consider restricting vendors product posts to the classified section...unless it's something like 'hey...check out this forum members car we put together' or 'hey...look what we put on our shop camaro'

If you look at his post he is simply showing off his future product, not saying that they are for sale or anything like that. These posts are meant for seeing what the prospective consumer's opinions are. The vendor section is meant for vendors to try and sell their products. So since he is just showing his product, therefore seeking feedback, he is in the right section. As for the other stuff about vendors asking you to PM them, I cannot answer that since I dont know.

Guys lets keep in mind that the main purpose of any forum is to educate, update, and encourage free exchange of information on the subject of the forum. In this case, the new Camaro. As a wheel manufacturer, the whole purpose of our involvement in forums is to gain insight in to the likes and dislikes of a particular market segment, and share exceptional examples of our work. We value your opinions and love to share in our common passion for wonderful cars.

I'm not suggesting you don't post...I LIKE YOUR POSTS...(but post the pricing as well...at least retail).

If vendors publicly posted prices on wheels, then other vendors would compete with each other and that would drive the price down. If prices are hard to uncover and compare, then it's easier to keep the price from going down. That's why you have to PM vendors to find out about wheel prices.
