Are these the same replica's that Phastek sells?

Curious why so many run a 275/40/20 tire vs. 285/35/20 on most of these setups?

I ran 275’s for a year until I switched to 285’s on my reps. I think most people run 275’s because they are less expensive and came on the SS. My 285 MPSS’s handle way better. Here’s a pic when I was running the reps on 285’s.

The 275/40 is a little bit taller and fills the wheel well better for us non-lowered folks.

I see... 275 makes sense then in that case.

So who else manufactures these?

The only replicas I've seen in the factory sizes are these and LG Motorsports. Unfortunately neither are very true to the original design, although the LGs are a little closer.

True, and unfortunate for handling and looks.

These reps were heavy compared to my MRR M017's. I don't know how important performance is to you, but, I would get a lighter wheel or look for a set of used OEM ZL1/1LE wheels that are forged.

Really? I would figure both would be close, but it probably depends on the castings, right?

I was trying to save a few bucks maybe with the 5th gens, eventhough I think the mrr017 have a better look.

I hope to get the car to a point for hpde's but its remote at this time.

Here is some type 41 love - these are 18x11's with 305/45/18 NT05Rs in back, and 20x9's up front with 275/40/20s. It was a square setup, but the need for more traction overwhelmed the need to keep it simple.
