    I am pretty sure the OEM wheels have GM stamped in them somewhere. I'll take a look at mine.

    I didn't find anything under the center cap but GM is stamped on the wheel.

    Yeah, that's a pic of the stock chrome 17 on my ext. There are Knock offs for both 20 and 22s that I found when researching wheel prices a while back. Unfortunately, I don't have factory 22s to compare them to. Any dealers in your area with some used trucks you can look at?
