You'll love the zl1 replica wheels. I never realized how much of a difference they made until I put them on my Camaro. Before I had them I barely ever received any compliments on how my vehicle looked. Since the day I put them on I receive a compliment from someone saying how nice my set up looks at least daily, whether it's at the gas station or even at stop lights lol.

The ones from phastek will not disappoint you. They're made well and look awesome. It's been nearly six months with them and they still look and feel new. Very very pleased with them

Replicas are fine unless u have the cash for forged rims which are obviously better. I run reps on my 700rwhp car and they have held up fine.

What size for replicas? 20x9 is way to small to me.
Should I do 20x10 all around
Or 20x10 front and 20x11 back

I have LG Motorsports replica ZL1 wheels. Couldn't be happier. 10 with a 285 tire on front, 11 with a 305 tire out back. Seen a thread a couple days ago LG is running a sale on the wheels if you are interested in ZL1 style.

I have 20x10 +23 FR41 polished replicas all around on MPSS 285-35-20's for a squared setup for handling and to rotate from front to back. I like the 10 spoke ZL1 style as it goes well with the lines of the 5th gen and I also like the new 2017 1LE style wheel, but, have not seen them on a 5th gen yet. I Autocross my convertible and canyon carve living in the mountains, but, if I ran road courses or any high speed activity I would go with a forged wheel. The 1LE/ZL1 OEM wheels come up for sale used for reasonable prices from time to time and you could powder coat them to the color you prefer. I may do this. Good luck with your choice.

I was actually super interested in the TSW Nuremberg wheels. 20x9 and 20x 10 with 35 MM offset. Is the weight difference worth for me to get those? Or just get zl1's?

Also how will the bronze TSW look on a silver 2015 Camaro?

The weight difference wouldn't be noticeable at all, not unless you did a lot of other weight reduction modifications along with the wheels. Honestly it's your preference though. It's YOUR car so get what you like and everyone else... Well they can pound salt if they don't like it lol.

Yes get what you like, taste is person specific. I saw these on one car online...And wanted to get them so I am not just another Foose wheel, and BTW yes chrome is still put on cheap and polished aluminum etc is better but does not shine as much yet does not corrode slowly. They are rocket racing, I shipped them from Tennessee to Oregon.

I looked pretty serious at all the 10 spoke replicas. I felt like they would give me the look I wanted but I'd end up still lusting after the OEM forged wheels. If I didn't have the money, I would have gone with the replicas... and then somewhere down the road try to score the OEM for a good deal.

Either way, these are the best looking wheels for the 5th gen, IMO.
