Replica ZCP wheel question.

Greetings everyone! What's your feedback on those replica ZCP wheels sold on Ebay? I'm considering one because my job moved to the moon, potholes the size of craters everywhere and I don't want to compromise my OEM wheels. Pictures on ebay looks exactly the same as OEM though. Thanks in advance for the insights.

Yeah not sure if they have improved since I last saw them but the replica ZCP's look abysmal. The replica 220M's look perfect, but the ZCP's look nothing like the real ZCP wheels, both in shape and finish, the angles are just all wrong and they don't look as aggressive. The first time I saw the ZCP reps the thought that they were ZCP wheels didn't even strike me. They look a lot different than in the pictures.

The other issue which is huge is that the ZCP wheels have a very special finish on them that's not just silver paint.

Maybe the wheels I saw weren't the ones in the ad but due to the uniqueness of the finish and the seeming difficulty of getting the look just right I would lean towards the real thing.
