Has anyone bought the Replica OEM 22" Rims?

I am looking at them, and see they come in +31 and +15 offsets.

I was possibly thinking of getting the +15.

How are the quality on these wheels?

Thanks for the update. If I buy mine at lease end, I will likely get some OEM 22s or these for the summer only, so keep us updated in a few months on how they are holding up PLEASE!!!! Thanks.

Did you compare them to the original? I always worry about quality on the repro's.

any close up pic's??

Thanks

kind of expensive.... $1000+ 200 shipping thats $1800 with some new, decent tires .... plus another $100-200 for sensors.... I bout my OEM 22" rims with 95% tread (Toyos) + sensors for $1200... took me 6 months to find that deal but I see them sell with decent tires for $1500 OEM all the time ....

Where did you find them for $1200? The cheapest I've seen is around $2000

They look pretty real, I will have to compare them to an 07+ Escalade if I see one in a parking lot.

I am using them as winter rims, so I will update how they hold up.

I bought my OEM 22''s for $1200 off craigslist. Had to drive a few hours there and back, but it was worth it.

I doubt they could be worse than OEMs. The 18 and 22 OEM 07+ Lade rims are horrible in termes of Chrome thickness and resistance to the elements. I keep mine very clean and wash thouroughly weekly year round , and keep a coat of quality wax on them - I have still had to have rims replaced. Thats why if I buy mine at lease end, I will have dedicated 18s for the winter and 22s for the summer.

The difference in weight would be my primary concern.
