They are really really cheap...there has to be a catch, perhaps weight?

yes weight.
and the real prostars are two piece aswell I think.
but what the heck they look good and are Aok in my book!

they look exactly like the summit stars

they are the same as summit stars. there are a few companys that sell them now and they are the same chinese cast aluminum wheel. im thinking of getting the new 275/50r15 Goodyear radial and running these full time. Now wHAT BACK SPACE DO I RUN?!?!?!?!?!?!

mike you have lt1 rear brakes ls1tech says 5.5 cause ls1 rear brakes have to be grinded to fit. so if 4.5 fit then guess what use 4.5 5.5 will give you extra clearence but stick out alittle.

5.5 will tuck under the car more. its the distance from the Back lip not the front. and im gunna need to get it right the 275/60r15's are 28" radials

28" is gay on the street stop being gay

a stock 8" wide wheel has 6.5" of BS for referance

As far as rear, True Prostars for 98-02 Fbodys go. 10 inch rim is 7.5 backspacing, thats whats on my car , with moderate grinding. And for an 8 inch rim its a 5.5 , with minimal grinding. Hope this helps

Some people like getting it in the ass it's still gay lol way too tall for these cars especially a radial.
