Just emailed to see if they have a staggered set up.
They would look great with some powdercoat!

Edit: Wow, just looked at that second set- perfect!
Now if the have a set of 20x10's for the rear...I might need to part with some $$$.

You could have two extended and either add spacers or mill then to reach proper ofset if needed for less than the cost of originals

Not a fan of 20's or 8" rears width.... But this is a good way to get an HSV look at a third of the price. You could always take the rears somewhere and them widened 1.5"-2.0"

Yeah I saw those late last night too.... still dont look right.
The triangles arent the right size and the spokes are too wide, the center hub area is different from OEM (bigger it appears) and the edge around the entire wheel looks to be of different thickness.
I guess its ok if you dont mind much, but after having actually seen in person how the OEMs fit and are flush with the fenders and everything, these would never work for me. They are just too far off. But dont get me wrong i have NOTHING against replicas. I just require them to be as close as possible in look.

Here is the response I received:
"Yes, they are available in staggered fitment. The rears are 20x9.5, +55 offset. Cost for the staggered set is $1299. Shipping is still FREE to the Continental US."

The offset seems a bit high on a 9.5 wheel though. ????
I may bite on these just to see what they look like. My concern is that I am going for a bit more of a US muscle look on my G8 and these definitely have that European/Australian flare to them. But I do love the machined face with black highlights!

*My mistake guys- the Pentagon is the one offered in staggered fitment. Still a nice looking wheel!

Well I just got a PM from the seller... hahaha Sure didnt expect that.
He said they are "exact replicas" of the OEMs.

Maybe the pictures dont do it justice, but they look different to me and since I have seen OEMs in person and I haven't seen these in person I'll just leave it there rather than come off like someone trying to $hit on the product of someone trying to sell something.
