    yes i have bought them. mine look great. im getting them powder coated in black this week. they are light, and im sure that they are the OEM wheel. dont be fooled by the imitations. if they are any color but the stock colors (chrome, and silver) or they are different sizes, they are rip offs and they weigh an extra 10lbs. too much drivetrain loss. what rims are you looking at?

    I got mine from there. no problems, except for the slow shipping. Good price, perfect fit. Here is a pic of them on my car. Black ZR1's

    if you are buying them black on ebay, keep in mind that they are going to be heavier than the stock OEM rim. what year of Z06 are you talking about?

    did they give you a number on how much they weigh? hopefully the guy isnt trying to cheat you. just be careful. but they will look pretty badass on a pewter camaro SS. ive got a 99 T/A that im putting powdercoated black C6 rims on. by the way, what tire are you going to be running on those?

    I was going to put either g-force sports or nitto 555's. Would mount some et streets on the stock wheels.

    There is a couple of seller that sell good quality wheel on ebay.

    I ve bought mine from Topswheel, exactly those one:

    http://cgi.ebay.ca/18-New-Black-Corv...QQcmdZViewItem

    18x9.5" black zr1 style.They weight 24pounds each wich is pretty good.They also sell some zr1 chrome and c5 z06 chrome.

    My combo wheel and tire(285/35zr18 fk-451) weight 54 pounds so it comparable to oem.

    EXEMPLE:

    58 lbs - AFS chrome 17x11 GS offset wheel with new Dunlop SP8000 315/35/17 tire
    56 lbs - AFS chrome 17x11 GS offset wheel with BALD Dunlop SP8000 315/35/17 tire :-)
    56 lbs - 18x9 chrome Cobra R replica wheels with 285/35/18 tires
    55 lbs - AFS silver 17x11 GS offset ZR1 wheel with new tire
    55 lbs - 17" Prime chrome 5 Stars with 275/40 tire
    55 lbs - 17" chrome Firewhawk wheel with new tire
    54.5 lbs - Replica SS wheel with Khumo 712 275/40 tire
    52 lbs - AFS chrome 17x9.5 ZR1 wheel with new Dunlop SP8000 275/40/17 tire
    50 lbs - OZ Monte Carlo 17x9.5 with 1/3 tread 275 GSC
    50 lbs - AFS polished 17x11 GS offset ZR1 wheel with new 315 BFG Comp TA drag radial
    48 lbs - 16x8 stock chrome 5 star with Kuhma Estca Supra 712 tires (V rated)
    47.36 lbs - 17" 10-spoke Camaro SS wheel (chrome) with BFG G-Force T/A KD tire/air
    45 lbs - 99 TA stock 16" chrome wheels and tire (SZ 50)
    44 lbs - 93-96 Camaro wheel with Nitto drag


    So your best bet is always call/send email to the seller first
