    the price was so low, so I had to buy them. if I was going to spend ~$700 on wheels I would get on craigslist/for sale section and find some true factory wheels used.

    The thing is you cant find OEM wheels with a lip. I would definitely spend $700 on their wheels again. That is about the cheapest you can find for an aftermarket wheel. They aren't going to be perfect and at that price I'm not sure you can expect them too. As far as weight goes aren't a majority of aftermarket wheels heavier?

    I know this is an old thread, but I wanted to post a buyer beware for oewheels. I got mine 15 months ago and there is pretty bad pitting of the chrome finish. I called them up and they won't cover it because it is past their one year warranty.

    i dunno about the chrome, but my gunmetal and stainless are holding up well after a year and a half...and no caps falling off either. but different people, different experience.

    They gave me some bad caps. I don't think they were even for those wheels. The ones they replaced them with have been on with no problems since then. I just wish they'd stand by their product. The pitting started months ago, I just never got around to calling them.

    Man I forgot this thread was even started by me. I had unsubscribed from it. Never even got around to getting the wheels. Life took a very unexpected turn for me. Still gonna get em. Just gonna take a lil longer this time.

    I have their C6 wheels and they still look great. I personally have had the car with them for 2 years, they're a little pitted, but i assume it's from the rocks as my paint got pretty messed up the past year as well. i was even going to get their C6 18x10.5s for the rear. Worst case, i'll just sand them and paint them black.

    Got OE Wheels and so far I like them but haven't gotten around to even mounting tires to them yet! In as far as Center caps they would not even deal with exchanging them. I have ZR1 style 17 inch 9.5s and 11s and didn't want Corvette Center Caps. Ended up selling them and purchasing plain center caps thru Corvette Central. But great wheels for the price!

    Friend of mine had purchased OE Wheels and got one that until it had a tire mounted you would have never known that the wheel was warped. They exchanged it but gave him some grief over verifying that the wheel was actually warped. In the end he got a new wheel.

    This place is called "OE Wheels" but I take it these aren't actually OEM wheels? Are they aftermarket copies?
