Ambit Wheels

Anyone tried these wheels? They seem too cheap for a decent forged wheel but I really like the look of the factory Z06 wheels but in a 20" all around.

I like these. and the price is reasonable. these might make for a good spare set with street tires.

Roto Forged aka Flow forged wheels are first cast. The barrel is then rolled. Face is still a cheap casting. $250 - $300 sounds about right. ZL1 deserves better.

Cleaning will be a PITA because these have that same dumb lip behind the spokes like the OEM wheels.

Thanks for the reply.. I'm mostly worried about if they can hold up to 800+whp? I'm not there yet but wouldn't want to buy wheels for this car that couldn't at least hold that amount of power.

Not to mention the end of the strut where it attaches to the rim if it gets curb rash, it's gonna be hard to fix because they stick out…

They do look nice and inexpensive. I don't know anything about them. They for sure would be good for "spares"
