Factory Reproduction wheels

Anyone bought the OEM style gloss black wheels from Factory Reproductions on ebay motors? I want black wheels for my car and so far the only style that really appeals to me is the stock wheel. Just wondering if anyone has bought them and what they think.

Bought their black machined wheel w/ a custom painted pin stripe... Very happy with 'em. I'm also buying a set of their (Grand Cherokee) SRT8 wheels for my wife's Jeep.

Very nice. I'm looking to get the gloss black wheels. Did you get yours with new tires or just the wheels?

its almost cheaper for you to take your stock ones and have them powder coated a glossy black.

The Factory Reproductions are larger OEM wheels. It would be cheaper to get them powder coated but you'd still be stuck with the stock wheel size. I'm thinking about buying a set of 22's myself but I cant decide between them or some dished wheels.

Have you considered black chrome OEMs. I've seen them for $700-$800 (4) on eBay. Just a suggestion. www.uswheelexchange.com

Check around the forum, there has been some issues with black chrome peeling.

But, those weren't "Permachrome" by US Wheel Exchange. Understand, I have no personal reason to promote USWE. I just want to stand by my advice to the OP.

USWE guarantees their wheels for 100,000 mi and 5 years. Even for a Michigan winter's snow, ice and salt driving conditions. You just can't do that with a substandard finish that has the potential to peel. The chromes houses on the West Coast can't match that kind of durability.
