Which rim is this?

I went to install my newly bought Michelin Pilot Sport tires today. The tech pulls me over to the balancing machine and says "do you feel any vibration while driving?"

Me: "no, nothing."

Tech: "well, the rim is badly bent. Watch this:"

and 'lo and behold, the thing was wobbling up and down like a basketball. It is badly deformed. The right wheel was deformed even worse. The previous owner must have hit the curb at speed!

The rims I have are these:



I don't want replicas, I want the originals, with the "CAMARO" stamp in them. I only need to replace the front two rims.

What is the GM part number? Are the stock ZL1 front rims 10" width?

So it's part # 22798741. Were these stock ZL1 rims, or a ZL1-specific option?

Unfortunately it's not that simple: I'm in Europe. The shipping alone would likely cost more than what he'd want for the rims.

They can be fixed. Find a local wheel shop that can straighten them.
Don't know where you are but there a shop right outside Nashville I have used.

I did not know that alloy wheels can be repaired in such a fashion!

I found a local company 31 minutes away from where I live which specialises in rim repair.

The accumulated knowledge on this forum is incredible. Boy am I glad I joined this forum of likeminded Camaro enthusiasts.

Just want to tell you: thank you, thank you, thank you.

Freakin' genius!

Is this semi-gloss, satin, or some other type of a finish?

What type of can spray finish works with these rims for touch-ups?

They are satin black. Did they get scratched while being straightened?

No, I'm super satisfied with the work they performed. You should have seen their faces, they were so proud of the work they did, putting the rims on the balancing machine and showing me how they straightened the rims.

I accidentally cut too close to a sharp corner curb in my driveway with the right rear tire, while I was trying to avoid cutting too close to the parapet with the front left corner (since I can't see it for shit and I'm completely dependent on my spatial feel and it was dark). Damaged a good chunk the tire sidewall, about two thumbs worth and scratched the rim, even though the tire had a rim protector. Luckily the rim protector bore the brunt of it. $430 USD for a new tire, balancing and installation and another $24 USD for an acrylic matte Black spray.

I sanded down the rim at the scratched spot with wet 800 grit sandpaper and applied four coats of paint while waiting for the new tire to come in. I did quite a bit of blending since the paint I bought isn't a 100% satin black replacement.

One cannot tell where the rim had been scratched unless one knows that it had been and one is looking for it very carefully.
