It is important to first have a clear understanding, the differences between Factory (OEM) Wheels and Replica Wheels. The vast majority of consumers do not understand the key differences between these two types of wheels, which are significant.
Factory Original OEM Wheels:
Wheels that come from the original vehicle manufacturer, are referred to as "OEM" or Original Equipment Manufacturer. These are the wheels that the vehicle manufacturer designed for their cars and trucks. OEM manufacturers would be the major vehicle brands like; Chevrolet, Chrysler, Ford, BMW, Mercedes, Honda, Toyota, etc.However, they generally have agreements with the brands not to sell at will
Why are Replica Wheels being Sold?
They are relatively easy to acquire from overseas manufacturers at a much lower cost than Factory Original (OEM) wheels, which in turn makes them very profitable to sell. The problem with Replica Wheels is that the vast majority of people buying them do not know it. They think they are OEM wheels. In addition, the quality and safety of these Replica Wheels are substandard, compare to OEM wheels.
Replica Wheels (Buyer Beware!):
When you shop on the Internet or eBay for automotive wheels, you will find many sellers offering very low prices on what they refer to as "OEM style", "Replica", “Replacement” or "Reproduction" wheels. These Internet listings are worded intentionally “Vague”, so you think you are buying an OEM wheel. Some sellers even claim that their wheels are made to OEM specifications at an OEM manufacturing plant. These claims are completely false.
Factory Original (OEM) Wheels :
When a factory (OEM) wheel is made, the primary goal is quality & safety:
Strength from road hazards (potholes, etc.).
Durability from road salts, car wash acids, chemicals, etc.
Toughness in order to minimize warranty claims and/or recalls.
Proper design to support the weight of the vehicle, passengers and cargo with a huge safety margin.
Fitment to ensure suspension and braking systems operate as designed and without vibrations.
