I love them. Easy to clean, just have to keep them polished up. :)

The finish is awesome...here is a photo after a fresh polish.



Only thing i'm not happy about is that they don't come polished on the inside or inbetween the spokes, but you can't complain for the price, otherwise I'd recommend them to anybody :D

did you lose any braking distance with them? they list the Tomahawk series as being 23lbs a wheel, but did you notice any change in braking or regular driving?

They are 9 lbs lighter than my stock chrome steelies mounted and balanced on 245/40 hankook tires. My truck is quicker and handles better with them as well. Didn't notice any change in braking, if anything, its better.

i love my centerlines... the only down side? they are polished, and polished wheels take some time to make them look super duper shiny. but if thats my only complaint.... you really cant go wrong.

super stong, really nice finish, and a good price. go for it

I can't confirm it, but I think the new GM 20 inch wheels are actually made by Centerline. That has to tell something about the fit, finish, and quaility if GM is willing to make them OEM. Just my $0.02.

(BTW, no problems with my rims :D Nice and shiney)

I put on 20X8 StingrayIIIs with 275/55 Falken S/TZ01s two weeks ago. I love em. I'm stopping about a car length shorter than with the stock chrome steel wheels. :rocking:

I dig mine, though they are a bitch to clean, since my Powerball won't get in the smaller holes....


But I did bring them back from this, by hand:


I want to go bigger in the future, to make room for bigger brakes, and I will go back to Centerline when i do. Something around 18s should be nice.

And, I don't think Centerline makes GMs rims:

I have the stingrays on my truck and love them. They shine up well with the addition of a powerball, definitly makes it easier to polish them. With a 275/35/20, they are about 10lbs lighter than my stockers. Like Steve said, its quicker and handles better with them. Never thought about it, but I would think the braking is better since they are lighter.
