Default Source for GM A-mold 5 spokes?

Anybody got a source for genuine GM A-mold 5 spokes? The ZR-1 I'm picking up next weekend has aftermarket 5 spokes, but I'd rather have real A-molds if I can find them for a reasonable price (and maybe keep the reproductions for track tires).

There were 2 NOS 17x11 GM ZR-1 amolds listed on Houston's craigslist a week or two ago. But they were pretty pricey. I think he wanted $1600 for both.

1250 with brand new sumitomos

rims have a few knicks and need to be redone to be really nice

but are very presentable and could be just touched up.

no curb rash, gennie amolds and straight

willing to see rims and tires separate, if a buyer for both step up

Thanks for the lead on this. He still has them and is willing to ship them to me. Looks like I lucked out on this pretty well.

These guys sell to the big boys but if you are nice, I think they will sell you some rims for a good price.

They look identical to factory and have great prices. Their chrome has held up over time as well. They have a 2 year warranty.

Just make sure you get the same exact rims, They sent me two rims that looked exact but on the inside of the 1 rim, it was squared (like original) and on the other rim, the inside was rounded.

Would normally not be an issue but, I have 6 piston calipers and one side was rubbing. When I looked at the ID numbers on the inside of the rim they were different.

They made good on it and sent me another rim which matched the other rim and worked perfectly.

Wait looks like now they sell direct and prices are great:

I've got a set of A Molds from my 94 with a brand new set of Nitto NT05 tires mounted with working tire pressure sensors. 2500.00 and they are yours.
