Thanks guys..NOT Z71.

2017 Camaro ZL1...I'm sure it will not be cheap, just looking for some hopeful guidance before I let the dealer rape me.

Thanks fellas...

Some are telling me it may be repairable...not sure. Yeah, it may not look that bad, but sticks in my craw. Gotta be fixed.

Those are definitely repairable wheels. Lots of places will reapir those for $135 or less per wheel and that includes mount and balance of the tire

My guess is it's Repairable. A good wheel place should hook you up for a fraction of a new one.

Most wheel repair shops can get that fixed for about $125. My car vlub has a sponser we use here in DFW.

Thanks gang...I'm on it & doing some research for the area.


Nice reconman...I think the ss & ss 1LE may be the best pound for pound all around sports car for the jack you can get.

Have you seen the 18 ZL1 1LE coming out right now...man, it is one hard core track monster. The wing is a bit much for my taste around town, but it functions & those insane 19" tires are crazy wide.
