    Just an update for anyone considering the C6 Z06 wheels. I've now had three of the center caps fall off. Not really surprised considering it doesn't take a whole lot of power to pull them off with your hand. They gave me the corvette center caps; I don't think these are the right ones for this wheel. I'm going to head over there sometime in the next couple weeks to see if I can get the blank caps from them.

    Interesting. How long have you owned the wheels?

    I got them in June, so only five months. I lost the first one after a month.

    Not sure if this is directed at me. I got them from oewheels. Their warehouse is about ten minutes from where I work in Sarasota.

    I'm happy with the wheels. Good quality at a great price. I would buy from them again.

    For the price they are of good quality. I only had mine 6 months but I had no issues during that time.

    I finally got around to heading out to oewheels today. They actually gave me a whole new set of center caps free of charge. I talked to one of their financing guys while I was there and he said it was in the works to get blank center caps made for us.

    Anyway, just thought I'd share my customer service experience with you all. They definitely earned me as a return customer in the future. Very nice people working there.

    There is such a demand for their wheels because of their low prices/good quality they can afford to charge a little bit more.

    i still recommend them for any aftermarket vette wheel. I was going to buy some more from them for my SS but i went with the Torque Thrust wheels. I had some spare 17s laying around and got the TTs for 680 shipped. I think when i paid for my C6 wheels i paid 600 for them shipped with new lug nuts.

    I bought some used, and can tell you they are very prone to chemical corrosion, so go ahead and buy full ceramic break pads when you install your new wheels, they will look nicer longer.

    only other complaint is that although they are heavier than factory corvette wheels, they don't really make a point to mention it on their site.
