Like i said earlier, there were some replica HSV wheels made in Russia and some in China and some in Taiwan. I have seen several photos of some of the wheels cracking from normal use.
The silver/black ones I had were made by the same Taiwanese company that makes OEM VW wheels and I never had any problems with them. I got mine from Wheelworx-au.
The wheels posted on Ebay may be just fine but I would not buy any until I knew who made them and checked out the quality. Not trying to rain on anybody's parade. Some of the replica wheels are great. Just be careful and don't jump in blindly.
This photo is one of the Russian wheels that a certain "crazy" friend from australia posted a couple years ago. They were impossible to balance and rims and spokes were cracking.
