So I made my own white letters

So I decided to make my own white letters for my 1LE. I bought a set from Tredwear but coming home into my driveway I scraped the curb and mucked up my letters. Didn't feel like paying another 30 Bucks so I made my own out of heady duty 1/8 "" vinyl... been running them for about a month and holding up really well. The one on the left Goodyear letters are the ones I made and the ones on the right are the ones I ordered... What do you think?

What make are those wheels?

I have some ZL1 clones on my SS with the same 'Camaro' logo inside the rim, but came with the car so no idea of the brand.

If memory serves me right those are GM wheels not replicas. Replicas didn't have Camaro cast into them like that.

I had assumed they were not OEM as they don't have ZL1 engraved on them?

OEM black rims only have Camaro on them. There are none that have ZL1 on them.

I ordered some white rubber I'm gonna try. Need it a little stronger. I used soft scrub to wash them holding up nicely.

The 5 spoke polished rims are the upgraded option for the ZL1 and do have "ZL1" engraved in one of the spokes.
