    Identifying ZO6 wheels (original or rep)

    OK guys help please. I just got my 01 ws6 T/A a few weeks ago and it came with a set of the what i call snowflake style ZO6 wheels. My question is how can tell if these are gm factory wheels or replicas? And how to tell if they will fit on my car? Would love to have these as a racing/play set but if they are not gonna work I'm gonna sell. Thanks in advance

    Two thoughts come to mind:

    1) Post pics
    2) Look on the backside of the spokes for a cast-in or dotted part number.

    If the inside of the wheel is dirty enough, its possible to not see Alcoas dimpled part number (looks like print from a dot-matrix printer). Speedlines numbers are cast into the wheel and are pretty obvious.

    Im running four 17x9.5 Z06's (two Alcoas, two speedlines) and have had no problems with them, other guys have staggered or just 18X10.5's and not heard any complaints. The real nice thing is that they shave about 5lbs per wheel vs. the WS6 wheels.

    I own two Speedlines and two Alcoas, and neither look like that around the hub. Are there any stampings on the inside of the spokes?

    Unless the chrome wheels were made by a third manufacturer. I'm guessing that is an aftermarket wheel.

    I just did a Google search on Fa-162 Z06 wheel and there was a Corvetteforums thread that is similar and they concluded they were aftermarket/reproductions.

    You can also weigh them without the tires and centers, if they are more than 22 pounds, theyre not factory.
